Just to add I put the wrong day in my previous comment Peter; I added the clowns on day 12 as my nitrates were excessively high, if your system is running to schedule on day 10 follow with the guidelines.

FraysReef,
I prefer to wait to not hurt any animals. I'm on a day 7 and need to buy another Ammonia test as:
Seachem tag (https://goo.gl/images/YqU8kZ) showing SAFE <0,02
Salifert Ammonia test showing <0,10
My NO2 drop from 3 to 1 (in 2 days time) with Salifert test
My NO3 is still very high: 80 with Salifert test

I hope NO2 will start dropping now and then NO3 will drop as well.

Nice you're getting there certainly, I personally use the redsea test kits + hanna phosphate as it was on offer in my LFS. I'm at week 6 and my nitrates are sitting around 12ppm something contaminated my tanks when I set it up fish are extremely healthy corals not liking it so Ive kept most in the Nano SPS for now.

So basicly your Nitrates ar 12 ppm which is still heigh. DO you remember or can you check how high it was when you introduce new fish on day 12? DO you have logs?

So everyone does it differently but I have a spreadsheet which creates a endless graph to show how stable everything is like Apex does. At 10ppm nitrates all fish are well corals have some browning the skimmer is working on overdrive to help

Sad to say I might give up on this method, nitrates not falling and I have a 20Gallon which is much harder to keep on redsea program working fine, will most likely move across to this on the larger system now.
This is just my findings to those who read, Zeovit stops the waste turning to nitrates and nitrites it can't handle nitrates in the system. My understanding was the zeostart and SP attached to the nitrates so the skimmer could pull this out. No chance of fixing if your system is new and you can't do a 90% water change my only choice would be to start again.
Really disappointed but don't blame zeovit no doubt I went wrong somewhere

Can you please share a picture of your sump ?

Can you tell me how long you have running the system total and when you have started to use ZeoVit on it ?

My system stil high of NO3 - yesterday 90ppm
PO4 going slowly down
NO2 going slowly down

2 days ago algae show up. I didn't do anything yet. Just dosing as adviced.
Just wondring why my NO3 going that high... Is it normal?
I put a water to my tank 3 October.
Started ZEO 13th October so yesterday I finish 14 day cycle, but my parameters still not good for any animals.
Should I do anything with algae or just leave alone for a system to sort it out?
