Because the system uses a dry rock combination, let us give biology more time, make the system more stable, and maintain the Zeo-based plan. Nutritional supplement products are not currently required (Po4-0.08mg / l).

In my meager experience, most LPS corals, adequate and suitable lighting, are really enough. Of course, some nutritional supplement products can also be added. However, it is recommended that water quality is better at low malnutrition.

NO3-10mg / l
Po4-0.08mg / l
Have you checked the level of reactor flow?

Hi everybody, happy new year. I just came home from holiday and make some measurements.
Kh - 7dKh
No3 - 10
Po4 - 0.05
Finally The phospates are fine. I am very happy with that. No3 is still a lit a bit higher. Probably it will takes more time to drop it down. In a few days I will Be changing zeolites. Should I change everything 1.5l or let there a little bit from The older zeolite?
And also The plate green monti turns to little bit brown. Some advice? I check The pottasium and it was 310. It Can Be caused Be this lower level of it?
I dosed 5ml of Xtra and 5ml od Coral booster.

Happy New Year to you and your family also !

Thank you for the update, I would expect the issue of the plating Montipora corals has something to do with the low K+ level, those corals are very sensitive to it so lets increase the level slowly to ~ 380 mg again.

For the first time, ZeoVit materials are retained for the first 4 weeks, after which the old 10% materials are retained and 90% new materials are replaced (maybe so). Zeo Bac x 10 days after changing materials, otherwise ZeoBac 2 ~ 3 times a week. Six weeks after the next exchange. With low nutritional water quality, potassium is slowly increased to 380mg.

Hi everybody,
Some news
Kh - 7
Ca - 440
Mg - 1340
K - 390
Po4 - 0.02
No3 - 3 max 4 (finally), hope that it will go a lit a bit down.
I am dosing like #12 as Alexander advice. Do you think that now Can I dose The zeobak and biomate twice a week? Should I dose also some add ons?
Also I have new lights from orphek.
Some issues with The red and green algae...Hope that it will disappear...

Lets change your dosing regimen a little bit:

5 drops ZeoBac 2 x weekly
0.5 ml ZeoStart 2 x daily
5 drops SpongePower every other day
10 drops BioMate 2 x weekly

Additional lets vacuum the affected sand areas while doing a water change to remove the algae. To remove the algae on the rocks you can try to dose a mixture of 10 ml CoralSnow and 5 drops ZeoBac daily for one week. While doing this no additional dosage of ZeoBac is necessary.

It is recommended to also get BioMate, this is really good. After giving the mixture, you can also temporarily turn off the skimmer for 2hr, let it stay in the water column, and then turn on the skimmer (to keep it wet)

You did very well. Because dry rock is used, biology takes a while. Low malnutrition water quality + NSW water quality parameters (including potassium), coral growth. Coral has growth / polyp extension and good nutritional supplements
