I do not know, reading the characteristics that as soon as the ammonia falls to zero substitute activated carbon. It gives me that they are very aggressive and that they are made more for a cycle. Also, barium is not a heavy metal, so I do not think I'll eliminate it.

To know if some zeolites contain barium I think it would be enough to analyze the osmosis water with which we leave them to soak days before replacing them. But of course, there is no BA test and the sample should be sent to triton lab.

Hello Meir, What type of zeolite are you using? Soon I will use Korallen zucht, since I was using others, by discarding things.

ok, seeing your answer and Blueyedson's I think my change of zeolite is not going to solve my problem.

Let's see if someone can answer your question and tell us what the effects of high levels are.

Its not poisonous all zeovit tanks have it. You can do some large 25-40% Water changes to bring it down if it bothers you.

Well, I'm quieter knowing that. I am not a supporter of large water changes, I prefer to make several 15%.
Thanks for your contribution

Here are some other threads discussing Barium:

I can not tell you which kind of roll this element does play for corals but I have used ZeoVit on my tanks for many years with great results but never take care about Barium as I never measured it.

As long as your corals are doing fine I would really not care much about it.
