Hi Alex,

Updates.

I've scrap off most of the green algae and everything looks new..lolx...its pretty hard tho something like a good algae which will end up consume by CUC..bt didnt notice them eating it. Hope it doesnt appear again. That aside, i still do get my sps rtn/stn and as of today i've lost 2 mini colony. Sadly, i notice its all the new additional sps that rtn/stn. The older ones are doing great with moderate-good PE. Hope the older sps will stay alive as im currently dosing -

Zeobak 2drop/3days
Zeostart 0.4ml (0.2ml am and pm)
Spongepower 2drop/2days
And i just started dosing -
Coralsnow 2ml/day

As of today my parameters are:

MG 1260ppm (has been hovering by 30ppm)
Kh 7.7dkh (has been hovering by 1.0dkh)
Ca 410ppm
Salinity 1.024


Do advice.

The dosing regimen and the water parameters are fine and not the reason for the TN if you use the correct reactor flow.

I think you have some kind of harmful substances in your system which causes the TN.

A couple of members have reported that they had issues with the combination of ZeoVit and Marinepure material, after removing the Marinepure the problems have gone, maybe a try to replace them with some fresh good quality live rock.

I can also not tell you something about the other material you have used as rocks, just have no experience with it, maybe someone else has experiences with it.

The lighting spectrum you use looks very blue on the pictures, you might check this also as to much blue is also not ideal especially for corals coloration.

Hi Alex,

Noted on that, bt im kinda worried if i were to remove the marinepure block it will effect the system, as i do not intend to add any liverock...and i do intend to add more aquaroche base plates probably later part. Basically i cn live with cycling alot longer tho..what im trying to achive is a long term beautiful sps tank which i've seen many who uses zeovit system.

That aside, as currently i do dose 2ml of coralsnow and 12drops of zeofood plus which i do not know whats the intention of zeofood plus. Will do a daily updates if possible with my param as well. Do guide me thru. Sorry for being a pain in the @#$.

As for bulbs combo, im use 6x24ati bulb which consist of

Bp,abs,bp,pp,bp and abs.

Hi all,


Did my param checks last night and just moments ago.

MG 0.18/1230ppm
KH 0.52/7.3dkh
CA 0.20/400ppm
Salinity 1.024
(No changes on param)

From above param i see that mg was abit low,so i added MG solution to rise by 20ppm. Hope it does goes too far.

As of today, i have lost 2xfrag of sps and 1x mini colony and soon another 1 coming soon.

Today dosing

Zeostart 0.4ml (0.2ml am/pm)
Coralsnow 2ml
Zeofood plus 12drops (day3)

Hello friends, I still think that your water quality is too clean, kz recommends using live rock, no live rock, sponge power is not helpful. Can you tell me what are the reasons for not using live rock? System fragility and the use of lower NPs means that corals can't adapt to other skimmers. Isn't it working properly? My solution: You need some good quality live rock to put in a sump. Or use fresh seawater to pour into the microbial flora, or add a few fish, or add some nutrients to the corals and let the system establish the microflora but this takes a long time. Let us first establish ecological microorganisms instead of purifying water

Hi Jacky,

Is this a question to me?if so, reason for not using liverock was to evade any pest which is likely be available...i wouldnt mind cycling longer as most of my sps i have asked a friend to help me out to look after..cheers

Let's say for example: ULNS, where is the difference between the quality of water np of reverse osmosis brewing sea salt and the np of a perfect system? There is an interdependent relationship between plankton and microbes. For example, bacteria provide vitamins and other nutrients for phytoplankton, and phytoplankton secrete glycolic acid as a source of energy and carbon for certain bacteria.

Due to the variability of marine microorganisms, they can participate in the degradation of various marine pollutants or poisons, which helps the self-purification of seawater and maintain the stability of the marine ecosystem.

Your concern is very good. This is also my concern. When I use a dead live rock in my tank, I can't build it up. I can't get enough water, and skimmer can't get normal bubbles. Yes, but it really takes a long time, or use seawater. I also thought I was scared of crabs, pests,... Then I ask you a question. When you newly enter coral, do you ensure that 100% is clean? My approach is to use some live rock to put in the sump, everything has changed the water quality is particularly transparent, the system's growth can be clearly seen, sponge body .... Trust me!

To make an interesting analogy, if the air you breathe is pure oxygen, is this feasible? Is the composition of air all pure oxygen? I just want to help you. I hope you don't misunderstand what I mean. Please forgive my bad meaning. We are friends.

By the way, another way is to use a replacement that you think is not a pest-free friend. This also helps the system. My advice is to use some good quality live rock to remove crab algae, ..., put in sump.
