Hello Tony, would recommend you to start as follows:

1. Place 0.7 liter zeovit in a Zeo Reactor. Water flow around 300 liters per hour. Connect the reactor pump to a clock timer and run the reactor pump with a 3 hour on / 3 hour off / 3 hour on interval. Please make sure the zeolite is not exposed to air while the pump is switched off. Clean the material daily. Leave the zeolite 4 weeks in the filter until you do the first change out. This is the first changing interval, others could be lengthen to 6 – 8 weeks.

2. Place 0.3 liters activated carbon in a filter sock and keep it in a passive water flow in your sump, changed every 30 days. Knead the carbon daily to keep the surface clean. Most users get perfect results with korallenzucht carbon.

3. Dose 3 drops ZeoBac daily for the first 2 weeks, flowed by a 2 – 3 x weekly dosage of 3 drops. Dose 0.3 ml ZeoStart 2 x daily (morning & evening). Dose those in front of the Zeo reactor pump while it is switched on.

Later on you could use the additional products for coral coloration. Adjust your skimmer to skim wet, keeping it clean to export as much as possible. Do a weekly water change of 5 – 10 % with a good salt.

Basic water parameters looking good, try to keep them as stabile as possible close the NSW in the following ranges:

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

For a nutrient poor environment K+ (potassium) seems to be a important element. I would recommend you to get a test kit for this element also, posting your results.

This is a start-up dosage which might have to be adjusted later.

Keep 10% of the old ZeoVit material and 90% of the new ZeoVit material. (should be,I often make mistakes)

After changing the ZeoVit material, 3 drops of Zeo Bac x 10 days, otherwise 2-3 times a week Zeo Bac. The next material change interval is about 6 ~ 8 weeks.

After changing the material, it takes about 2 weeks. If the corals are healthy, switch the reactor flow to continuous flow.

Use a container, collect the reactor outlet for 30 seconds, volume x120, and obtain the hourly flow of reactor water

For your system, the water flow is about 300 liters per hour.

Salt + water, change 5 ~ 10% every week

Basic water parameters try to maintain NSW level
Kh 6.5~7.5
Ca 400~420
Mg 1250~1300
K+~ 380-400

In a malnourished environment, potassium seems to be important to get a test kit
These two product options, Zeo KB, Zeo KB Strong, provide potassium and slowly rise to 380 mg

In the picture, the Zeo products you listed, I currently own Zeo AA, Xtra, Sponge Power, PIF. I have no experience with the remaining 2 Zeo products.

Zeo Sponge Power has positive side effects on biology

Zeo Sponge Power, 3 drops, every other day, you can join this Zeo plan.

Adjust the skimmer wet and clean the collection cup to make it more outlet

Nutrition / elements, coloring / coral health, these products can be added to malnourished water quality, which is better.

Let's first complete this first phase (replace ZeoVit material / switch reactor to continuous flow). Over time, the use of Zeo's basic products keeps its nutritional level stable and low.

I am very happy that you are about to perform the first ZeoVit material replacement. I use it as a "starting point", and it may be like entering the next stage of Zeo.

[ Consider phase 1 the initiatation of ZEOvit method. The basic 4 are used to reduce nutrients in a balanced manner. As nutrients & "reserves" are depleted, the corals become brighter, lighter in appearance & the quantities of the zeo's dosed becomes less.

Enter phase 2 [~ 3-6mos], the corals continue to colorize more & nutrients are becoming more exhausted. During this phase, however, if dosing is stopped for more than a few days, nutrients again begin to rise, & corals become darker . This is due to "pooled-reserves" still remaining available ]

Hello Tony, just replace 90% of the material and keep ~ 10% of the old material in your reactor. Dose ZeoBac daily after each ZeoVit exchange, otherwise 2 x weekly.

About 2 weeks after the exchange you can switch your reactor to continuous flow if all corals are doing well. Make sure to use the correct flow.
