I have notised that my yellow acropora is getting pale. And a green montipora with purple edge have lost the green. I suspecting this is because the k+ is too low?

3 ml will not do much, keep in mind the K+ concentration is close the same as Ca and dosing 3 ml Ca supplement in your reef will also not show any measurable increase of the level.

You can dose 2.5 ml 4 x daily to increase the level slowly but allow a minimum dosing break of 2 hours between the additions.

I have just dosed ZeoStart with a dosing pump, worked well if the right equipment is used. The ZeoFood and ZeoBac dosage is minimal so the automatic dosing for those two does not work well, would recommend to dose them manually.

If you leave for 2 weeks you can just keep on dosing ZeoStart with a dosing system if you like to, the others can be dosed as usual when you are back.

i have a buble magus zeovitfilter, the pump is 1000 l/h.
This is too high for my 0,6 liter zeovitstone, what negative effect does it have?
I have some alges inside my overflow box, ( i don't have a lid, but I'm going to make one)

Would suggest to measure the output of the reactor, the material does reduce the flow. Just collect water from the reactor outlet for 30 seconds, multiply its volume by 120 and you will get the exact output per hour. Ideal is 400 liters per hour for each 1 liter zeovit.

This is my dosing at the moment.

My K+ has droped to 360 after i've raised it to 380. So i have to raise it again and change the dose.

Ok i will measure the output flow, but i must wait until i'm going to change the stones. So it will not exposed to air. Because i have to tale the reactor out of the sump to test this.

Do you know what to much flow does?

With to much flow your corals usually respond negative especially when you recently started zeovit on a already stocked system. A little bit more or less does not hurt bus usually the recommendation of 400 liters per hour for each 1 liter zeovit works very well.

Okay, i will check the flow when i'm changeing the stones.

I have to clean the glass very often, every other day, i get a brown coating on the glass.

NO3 and PO4 is not detected, and is measure with salifert tests.

Once if the system runs nutrient poor stabile you are able to reduce the ZeoStart dosage a little bit. This can be done as long as the PO4 level does not increase. At the moment I would recommend to dose ZeoStart as you already do.

I would recommend you to get a high sensitive PO4 test kit instead of the salifert kit you use.
