Default Switching to zeovit !!HELP

HI Guys im from Sri Lanka (beautiful island surrounded by reef ) , currently i have 24*24*12 shallow tank , my plan is to run barebottom tank with lots of live rocks, for filteration im thinking of building all in one style back filter,

my inventory list

2x Kessil a150
TMC V2 skim 300 (rated for 66 UK Gal )
Kz Phol's Xtra ,Kz Amino Acid

I need help for below questions

1) What are the other KZ supplements i need to buy ?
(here is my list of products that im planing to buy)

zeolite 1000ml
zeo start 100ml
zeo bak10ml

2) My total tank volume will be around 20G (with rocks and back filters), since im from srilanka shipping cost is very high , how long i will be able to use below products in 90l tank with light stock .(i need to calculate montly cost thats why i need this)

3)is it possible to run zeolite on Back chambers without reactor ?

4) since i,m surround by sea im using NSW , how about zeovit compatibility with NSW

5) any disadvantage of runing zeovit on barebottom tank

Hope you guys help me to clarify my issues .

1.bak, sponge power, start3, kz zeolite activated carbon, cv, AA, Xtra, coral snow, kb.

2. The problem encountered is unknown, such as: algae po4, corresponding to different potions. Therefore, the product could not be determined, and the initial bak sp start3 zeolite was started.

3. The reactor is quite important.

4. Mainly kh is recommended to be 6.5~7.5.

5. Make sure that it is not a live sand.

Hi chaturai

First of all I would recommend to download the dosing guide from:


It does explain the system and its components very well.

To give you a startup recommendation it would be good to know some more details about your system:


Using a reactor makes the processing of nutrients much more effective compared to just placing the material in a sump. You can DIY a reactor if you like to, it is really not difficult. You might find some ideas over here:


For the beginning I would recommend you to use:

Activated Carbon
Potassium test kit

Later one if the system runs stabile different other products can be added depending to the look of your corals.

If the natural seawater you plan to use has a good quality you can use it.

Zeovit can also be used with a bare bottom system however I would recommend a shallow sand bed of aragonite with a depth of 3 – 5 cm as this does improve the biological stability of the system but if you have enough good quality live rock bare bottom should work well also.
