I had this all with all my reefs also Massimo it is a indicator for a well working biology as most of the stuff are bacteria.

I would not see a reason to not use it, it should still be fine Massimo.

hi alexander....
after a pair of month the cyano problem seems go much better, remain only some stain that i took away during the water change...
the coral are still a little dark but the thing are going better.

the problem in another:
I did a icp test with marinlab and trhis are the result:
rodi water perfect
the salt water have alway the usual problem: high barium and alluminium.

nothing in the tank can release this, every magnet seems perfect...

I'm supposing the problem are the zeostone....to much people has this problem with zeovit....

now I ask you:

the high barium and alluminium can increase dino and cyano ?

can create problems with the coral growth and color ?

or the presence is common and give no problem ?

I have read some literature that Al do fuel Dino. high BA can be a sign of overdosing some elements like BB or color system as these contain BA.
Al comes form leaching, I had high Al from marine pure, they were leaching only after I removed all the blocks did I fix the issue. there are common sources of Al that leach like some types of tubing, metal that is rusting even power head properrlers if they are cracked and started rusting..

Hi Massimo, I neither had a cyano problem in my old tank neither in my last one, both where running with zeovit for many years so if that would be a general problem with the material I would expect to observe this problem also.

While comparing ICP test results from zeovit systems a elevated barium level seems to be common however the aluminium concentrations are mostly as they should be.

Have read an article by randy if an not mistaken about some tubings like the one that is enforced internally by metal wire that can leach al.
Tubing that is locked by the metal locks can leach when the metal lock rust...
I like to use pvc as much as I can and if need tubing I get NSF grade tubings.

That being said there is are more common items that can leach al than tubings.
Some gfo like phosguard from Seachem
Marine pure blocks and alike blocks.
Dry food.
Kalkwiser
Any metal in the water or close to the water especially when rustes.

Thes items add al to the tank especially dry food, phosguard, and marinepure
