Your LPS dosage is a little low you could add the recommended or do like I do and use 5 different brands. lol
Your tank is very nice but where are all the fish.

Zeovit does not really work without fish.

Unless your willing to add all kinds of Aminos and fatty acids to the tank

Hi mnml



Basically as long as your corals are doing fine and nutrients are stabile low your present dosing regimen can not be to bad. Your plan to add another 0.5 liters ZeoVit to get a total volume of 1 liter is OK also but to be 100% save I would recommend to increase the quantity in two steps over a 4 week period or over the next changing interval after 6 weeks. Also make sure to adopt the reactor flow to the new volume.

I would recommend you to stop using kalkwasser:

Also UV is not compatible with the system, it destroys many elements of the system as long as they are in the water column.

Do you treat Flatworms at the moment ? If not it would be fine to cut down the dosage of FlatwormStop to 2 ml 2 x weekly.

Getting a K+ Test kit might be also a good investment, level should be ~ 380 mg.

Hi Bugger,

All my fish were hiding since I took my lid off to take a photo of the tank.

I have a Yellow tang, Kole tang, 2 clowns, 2 Tiara Anthias, 1 Flasher Wrasse, 1 Leopard Wrasse, 4 Chromis, 1 Fire Fish. Noted on the LPS aminos dosage. I will ramp up to recommended dosage over the course of 2-3 weeks.

Hi G.Alexander,

Thank you for the response.

I will follow your advise on the rocks over next 2 changes.

I was using to UV to battle Dinos but they are mostly gone now. I will take it offline.

I do not have any flatworms at the moment. Will cut down to 2x a week.

Ordering K+ test today.

I will report back in a few weeks.

Many thanks,
Tran

I use the Salifert K+ test kit. It has the advantage for me. Convenience/popular purchase, resolution and discriminating readings are very clear to me.

Listen to other people's experiences and other good choices.
