Regardless of the NP level, as described above (sorry, can't be edited again), in the current NP case, the reactor flow level when 3hr is on does not exceed the recommended flow.

[ Put 1 liter of zeovit into the Zeo reactor and the water flow is about 100 US gallons per hour. ]

Lets start with the interval, this will help your corals to convert to ZeoVit and is the most save way in systems which are already stocked with corals even if nutrient concentrations are low already. About 2 weeks after the first ZeoVit exchange you can switch the reactor to continuous flow if all corals are doing well.

The instruction state to dose Zeofood from the start but your instructions don’t mention using Zeofood to begin?? Also, is zeostart the only thing that should be dosed right at the reactor pump and the others directly in the DT?

The old version uses Zeo Food7. It is recommended that you use Zeo Sponge Power, which is a different product. Zeo Food7 can be used in the subsequent stages of malnutrition water quality to adjust the appearance of the coral.

It doesn't matter, just make sure to add it after skimmer.

Ok interesting. So you suggest not dosing Zeofood and dose sponge power. In BRS description spongepower is mainly for sponges, clams, ect. So don’t feed corals until they start to look faded?

There are many reasons for the fading of corals. It is hard to say, and it is not entirely dependent on feeding. For the current phase of the conversion system, Zeo Sponge Power is really good, but Zeo SP is not mentioned in G.Alexander's suggestion. Because this may be a dose that needs to be adjusted, and adjust the coral to the environment and after successful conversion. Of course, I think the current addition should be no problem.

This is my idea, maybe not very correct

I watched the appearance of the coral from the picture. Zeo Food7 is not currently required. Of course, if it is added, it will not cause trouble, but it is really not necessary at present.

Let us first follow the recommendations of G., first establish the system transformation, and have a wider operating space.

Ok. Hate going back and forth but I will hold on zeofood and start sponge food per directions. If I should do neither for now, let me know.

Sponge Powers side effect is a positive impact to the biology so it might be a good idea to dose it additional. You can dose 4 drops every other day for the first 4 weeks additional if you like to.

ZeoFood can be dosed later if necessary when the system runs nutrient poor stabile.

Now on day 6 now. Water is very clear compared to before. Corals look fine, no better no worse.

Alk 7.5 Ca 425 mg 1400 Nitrate 2.5 and Phos 0.

Running Zeoreator on 3 off 3.
ZeoBac 4 drops per day
ZeoStart 0.4 per day (0.2 x 2) just installed the auto doser this afternoon. Mixed up 100 mls at a 1:9 ratio.
Will
Start ZeoPower tomorrow.

You mentioned at the start to use Zeostart 0.4 mls x 2 per day. You did mean 0.4 total (0.2 x 2) not 0.4 x 2 per day or 0.8 per day, yes? 100 gallon total water.

100 US gallons / 400L = 0.4ml x 2 per day (0.4ml in the morning, 0.4ml in the evening), a total of 0.8ml a day

Just noticed this afternoon, getting cyno, spread around throughout the tank. Any thoughts on actions? Came pretty quick.
