Hello artisson

We can have a detailed record from the "Korallenzucht initial 14-day cycle" in the ZeoVit Basic Messages (FAQ).

This is the basic message of tank, fill it in, which is very helpful for understanding your tank basic information.

1. Total water volume of the entire system (including sewage tanks, etc.) - US gallons / imperial gallons / liters
2. Total net water volume (including water tanks, etc.) - US gallons / imperial gallons / liters
3. Are you using a CaCO2 reactor or other technology?
4. Are you using a PO4 reactor (how long, how long, etc.)
5. Are you using ozone?
6. Are you using ultraviolet light?
7. Which type of skimmer you are using (type, rated water volume)
8. What is your actual PO4 and NO3 content?
9. What is your actual calcium, aluminum and magnesium content?
10. Which filtering method do you use (refuge, DSB, miracle mud, etc.)
11. Type of light (wattage, color temperature, age, etc.)
12. What coral do you raise?
13. Organize the color (light or dark)
14. How long does the tank run?
15. Why use the ZEOvit system?
16. Any supplemental dose (type, quantity, cause, etc.)
17. Live rock (how much, how old, etc.)
18. Any problems currently in existence
19. Description of the problem (organizational loss tips, tissue loss basis, algae bloom, algae, etc.)
20. What test suite do you use (how long, recent switch, etc.)
21. Current dose, quantity and interval (ZEOvit, ZEObak, ZEOfood, ZEOstart, ZEOspur2, etc.)
22. Other water parameters and water stability (salinity, temperature, etc.)
23. Which salt brand do you use?

I know there are many problems. Please be as detailed as possible (honest) and feel free to explain what else you think is important.

Start a new thread and give us as much information as possible

The initial establishment of tank, Zeo Zym, CoralSnow, BioMate, is not currently required.

It is also recommended that you use some high quality Live rock which has positive help for biology.

Hello Romain, basically running a system without live rock is possible however the cycle will take much more time compared to live rock. Make sure to clean the dry rock very well so it does not leach nutrients anymore.

As Jacky has mention this cycle method should work for your system:


But the cycle will take up to a couple of month in the case you use dry rock.

You can dose ZeoZym twice weekly if the first 2 weeks have passed. Do this for about 2 or 3 weeks, than reduce it to 1 x weekly.

Please keep in mind that all dosing calculation is based on the net water volume of the system.

If you answers to the questions Jacky has posted it will be helpful for the future to have all the information about your system in a compact form.
