Thanks for reply. Made changes and see how it goes. Another question, cyno is still around, does not seem to get really bad but not going away with current dosing. Reading some about A Balance. Any recommendation to add this for cyno or not worth the effort for now??

Default Whats up with this coral

This coral has always been brownish but what does anyone think. The polyps used to be much fuller. Now they are pretty thinner out and can really see the white coral skeleton under. Is this bleaching or staving or normal reaction with zeovit??

You can try to dose 8 ml CoralSnow mixed with 4 drops ZeoBac daily for one week. While doing this no additional ZeoBac dosage is necessary. Switch off the skimmer for about 2 hours while dosing if possible.

I can not see much on the picture because of its quality, usually polyp expansion does improve when using ZeoVit. Lets see if that does change again if the TN of the tips has been stopped.

Just an update. Cyno is almost gone, just a bit here or there. The hair/turf algae growing on some of my power heads pretty much died off. Water looks clear. Parameters this morning are nitrate 10 and phosphate 0.02. Can’t say it’s the CS, Zeym or BM but whatever it looks good. I believe My concern over burnt tips is actually just new growth. Not much change but not worse and no algae growing on the tips. Currently in week 7. Hoping now that algae and cyno under control my nitrate will come down.

I am very happy to hear that "Cyno is almost gone". You can do it for another 1-2 weeks. After that, you can use Coral Snow twice a week as "maintenance",(Coral Snow 4m , 1 week x 2), I believe it is good.

Default Paling Coral??

Here are a few pics of coral I consider pale. Yes, they are/were brownish (slight red in some) but have noticed more pale brown to beige now. Still dont think Im at ultra low parameters, today Nitrate at 10 and Phosphorous 1 PPB (phosphate less than .01). Currently just dosing 4 x ZB, .9 ml ZS, SPx4 every other day, CS with Bio mate 2-3 times a week. Since they are still brownish but pale should I continue as set or should I start considering adding other supplements and if so what?

This is some of my thoughts

1.ZeoVit reactor flow
2. Activated carbon brand / way of use
3. Potassium level

1. Potassium is always high, 430. Never have to dose it.
2. I have a lot of Bulk Reef Supply Bitmous Carbon that I use in a bag in my sump. Not a high efficiency type of carbon.
3. I also use the Skimz ZAR Reactor, no way to measure flow but it’s set to the appropriate flow.

I’m not saying things look worse, these corals have always been somewhat brown, that’s why I’m trying Zeovit for better coloration. However, they used to be a dark rich brown and now they are a light, grayish brown. Just curious if that’s a sign to start dosing some of the coloring up additives.

So the TN question, and the Cyano question, have been improved overall, it may be the relationship of the picture (not very clear), but compared to the last picture, the coral seems to be better, the nutrient addition is usually added when the malnutrition water is added. well.

Cyno is gone and it was not TN, turned out to be new growth. Guess the growth is faster than I was used to so it looked like burnt tips. How are you defining malnutrition water? Absolute 0 nitrate and 0 phosphate together?

It can usually be seen from the appearance of corals, when low malnutrition water quality, coral tissue becomes lighter, better PE, polyps expansion/growth

The consumption of elements - KH, CA

Affirmative phosphorus value is less than 0.03ppm

certainly there with phosphate, at less than .01 however can’t get nitrate lower than 10. Corals are lighter, just not sure how light they should be and not all coral is lighter.

Because the pictures are not very clear, "dark brown, now they are light brown" "I can't tell exactly, but it looks great, you are doing very well, if there is no algae problem, and NP is low, And by observing changes in the appearance of corals, it makes sense to add nutrients and coloring elements. But N is 10. If it is me, I will continue to add the basic products. Usually, the ZeoVit system N is 0, and N is 0. It is usually not a difficult problem. It is recommended to continue for a while.

Then if you want, Xtra 1/2 dose twice a week, you can try, if the coral turns black then it may be "water quality nutrition" is not very stable

Zeovit reactor flow This will also have a positive impact on nutrients,and remove nutrients as much as possible, vacuum the siphon sand bed, adjust the skimmer wet, etc.
