Default Zeovit with dastaco

If you want to run on zeovit, in my case with a dastaco, do you add your trace elements with zeovit coral system or do you have to add everything manually?

If I see it right, it is just some kind of a CaCO2 reactor. Which kind of material do you plan to use for it ?

I am not sure what exactly you mean with trace elements, elements like Ca / Mg / KH ?

You're right, it's a calcium reactor. Think for yourself the better ones that exist. With this I keep kh and Ca up to standard. With trace elements I mean iodine, boron, strontium, potassium, etc. Currently I do that with Aquaforest component ABC. Weekly water change with Tm pro a 10%

Many trace elements are added by the regular water changes in a balanced way. There are some elements know to improve coloration and growth of corals which can be added if the system runs nutrient poor stabile. The classical all in one trace elements do usually not work very well in nutrient poor systems and many do darken the corals tissue. You can give it a try but use much lower quantities as recommended on the bottles. Dosing those elements individual with several different products does give you more control over it.

Thanks for the explanation Alexander. I use the ready-made all-in-one trace elements because it is actually stated in the manual, and the icp tests are usually good. Good to know that the zeovit method is not necessary. The rest of the month I will prepare everything and hope to be able to go on the zeovit method in February !! Then I will create a new topic with all the details so that I can be helped on the way.

Those ICP tests can be very helpful, however corals are still the best indicator for a system.

Hi remi,

You can donthe complete zeovit system while using the dastaco with the procalc stones.
Only thing you dont need are ca en kh.
