Here is a video of the corals now before zeovit. In 6 months I can look back and compare

Start with reducing nutrition

360 US gallons = 1350 liters

Algae do grow because of nutrition.

In any case, the tank takes time. As a support, you can take an additional 13.5ml every other day, CoralSnow for a while. Skimmer adjusts the wet, siphon cleans the sand

The flow through the zeovit reactor was also measured and water was collected from the filter outlet using a separate small container for 30 seconds. Multiply the volume by 120 and you will get an hourly output. Run the reactor continuously.

If the water volume is 1350 liters, I recommend continuing to manage as follows:

ZeoBac - 2 times a week, 13 drops
ZeoStart3 - 1.35ml per day, morning and evening.
SpongePower - 13 drops per day for the next 4 weeks.

3.375 liters of ZeoVit was passed through the reactor at a flow rate of about 1350 liters per hour.
When shutting down the pump, make sure that the zeolite is not exposed to the air. Clean the materials daily. The zeolite was left in the filter for 4 weeks until the first replacement.
(Replace 90% of the zeolite, retain 10% of the old zeolite, and replace 13 Zeo bac every day for 10 days.)
This is the first replacement interval and the others may be extended to 6-8 weeks.
If the coral is healthy afterwards, the zeolite reactor switches to continuous flow with an hourly flow rate of approximately 1350L.

Place 0.7 liters of activated carbon in a filter bag and place it in a passive stream of water in the oil sump, changing every 30 days. Rub the carbon every day to keep the surface clean. Most users get the perfect result with korallenzucht carbon.

@ Are you using ultraviolet light? Yes,
not recommended in the KZ system


The water parameters look good and try to stay stable in the following range of New South Wales:

KH 6.5 - 7.5
Ca 400 - 420 mg
Mg 1250 - 1300 mg
K + ~380 mg

It is usually better to supplement nutrients in a low-nutrition environment. Currently, you have a high level of nutrition. It is recommended to stop adding Zeo Food7.

Pohl xtra 13.5ml, recommended from 2 times a week
Coral snow plus I have no experience


If you prefer, you can get another BioMate

As nutrients have risen, it may take some time to find a reduction, so some patience is needed.

This is just my suggestion, you can refer to it

Right now I dose
Zeobak 4 drops per day so 28 drops per week
Zeostart3 1.4 ml x 2 per day
Sponge power 10 drops MWF need to change
I will turn off UV light. The zeolight rock is in a vibe and it shake every 6 hrs for 90sec
I hook up to manifold so it has to run continuously

I just start the zeo reactor for 2 days so nothing change yet I will report back when I see some changes.

The only thing I noticed is a little green algae appears on the rock but I anticipate a little algae will happen since I add more bacteria source.

I suggest you can:

ZeoBac - 13 drops the next day
Zeostart - 1.35 x 2 x per day
SpongePower - 13 drops per day
BioMate - 26 drops the next day

For every small project, it is recommended that you do it to avoid "unachievable things". The exact zeolite flow is related to reducing nutrition. Too little or too much is not a good thing. There are also mentioned horizontal parameters suitable for the KZ system.

Your phenomenon also indicates that there is a slightly higher nutrition in the tank. It is also recommended that you temporarily stop adding Zeo Food7. Start with reducing nutrition.

Sorry, my head is not clear, Pohl xtra How do you add the amount of the additive, there are suggestions for you to start from 13.5ml, twice a week, this should not lead to

If the coral is healthy, you can choose to switch to continuous flow, pay attention to the appropriate flow, there are suggestions for you. Please also pay attention to K+ level ~380

Then the dose should not cause nutrition, do everything well, start with reducing nutrition, and change the water 10% per week, vacuum the siphon sand, give Zeo Coral Snow 13.5ml, adjust the Skimmer more wet, if you Willing to change water 20% within 10 days, do 3 times, refresh the balance.
