My mechanical filtration is very simple as zeovit recommendation with a sump running with filter socks, reef octopus 110 skimmer and zeo lite info as below.

Zeo Lite: 14.5 Fluid Ounce, replace 3/4 every 2 months and flow 16 Oz in 13s.

I am not really familiar with the US system to measure volume, can you tell me how much ml or liters of the material those are and what the reactor flow is in US gallons ?

Thank you reactor flow is a little bit low, 42 US gallons per hour would be ideal.

In your dosing regimen I can not see ZeoStart, do you dose this product ?

Beside the higher reactor flow I would also recommend to dose 0.15 ml ZeoStart 2 x daily. The combination of both should be helpful to reduce the PO4 level. Increase the flow and the dosage in some smaller steps.

If you already have BioMate you can dose the product @ 3 drops every other day additional.

Also make sure to skim wet and clean the skimmer daily to export as much as possible.

Hi Alex, i followed ur instructions and will report back in couple months when i have triton tested again.

Also i have experiencing some issues with layer of green algea on sandbed, other than that my tank looks great both corals and fishes. So i am trying to isolate what caused it.
1. Flow ( already added more flow to dead spot areas)
2. Lack of CUC ( also added more CUC that help clean sandbed)
3. Dosing

For dosing, is there any increase/decrease doses that you would recommend?
Thanks

Looks like some kind of cyanos to me, can you please post your actual full dosing regimen ?

Additional I would recommend to try to vacuum the affected area while each water change for some time.

Do you already own Coral Snow ?

Jacky is right both can improve those colors if everything is fine.

You can start with 1 ml B-Balance / 25 US gallons every other day for one week or so, the K+ level of your system should also be ~ 380 mg.

Too high k+, corals may burn at the tip, pay attention to it, and don't lift too fast. Possibility of causing coral pressure stn
