That dosen't look that bad. It looks more like detritus than algae. Maybe try a few snail. astirea and Mexican turbo but don't go overboard they need food too. Personally I feed my snails using a veggie clip because there is no algae in the tank.

It looks a bit like mulm buildup to me. You could try zeozym with biomate. That usually does the trick. Coral snow may help as well.

The advice of 2 friends is great, the picture looks like "the product of the amino acid type is added"

In addition, the toothbrush is also a good helper, and replace the water, do everything as clean as possible.


The water volume is 480 L, and the ZeoVit material is about 1.2 liters.

Understanding the ZeoVit reactor flow is good, how much is it per hour?

Usually basic balance, Zeo bac, start3, SP

Do you only use Zeo Bac?
Life 25mL daily, I don't know much about “life".

Not sure if start3 makes the situation change, usually Start3 = 0.48ml x 2, you can do this and see if they affect

Sorry, it is my loss , I'm really sorry

2. The amount of water (including oil sump, etc.) - US gallon / British gallon / liter 420 liters

Start3 0.4ml x2, daily

One liter of ZeoVit was run through the reactor at a flow rate of approximately 400 liters per hour.

The five basic components of the ZEOvit system interact to effectively reduce nutrients and establish water conditions close to the parameters encountered by corals in their natural habitat. The five basic components are:

1. A balanced zeolite mixture (ZEOvit).
2. Microbial Solutions (ZEObak).
3. Combination of bacteria and coral food (ZEOfood)
4. Bacterial food (ZEOstart)
5. Constant filtration with activated carbon

It is recommended to use Bac, Start3, SP
Can you know why not use Start3 and Sponge Power? (You already have some products from Zeo)

So how do you lower the NP?

This is not the advice of ZEO but I had similar issues so I bought NO Beta from Triton and dosed my nitrates up to 3ppm and the algae stopped. My corals didnt darken up but i did pull back a bit on the nitrate dosing since.
