Yes, the PO4 has not gone above 0.10 for the past 2 weeks, but it hasnt gone lower either..I have been running the reactor pump continuously. My last Zeovit exchange was 10.1.2019. That is when I messed up the L to ozs. conversion and only used 2cups instead of 3 1/2 cups. So yesterday, when I noticed this, I added the additional 1 1/2 cups and have been running the reactor pump 24/7..should I set it to 3 hours on/off now?

If you have running the reactor pump with continuous flow already I would recommend to keep it when your corals are doing fine. Would recommend you to do the next exchange in the middle of this month, replace 90% of the material and keep about 10% of the old material in the reactor. The additional ZeoVit material should slowly decrease PO4 over the next couple of weeks, especially after the exchange.

Default Finally ready to start Zeovit

Ok, I will do that. One question, the BioMate, is is dosed on the inlet of the Zeovit reactor, or in the sump or in the tank? Thank you in advance.

Sump's submersible motor front, to the main display system. Avoid before the skimmer entrance.
BioMate@ every 25 US gallons = 2 drops every other day.

As Jacky has mention in the last sump camber which contains the return pump or directly in the main display tank in front of a pump.

Unfortunately I have decided to end using Zeovit system. I travel monthly for at least a week at a time and I have to depend on my friends to come twice a day to my house. Its a lot to ask. Can you please explain to me the best way to stop? I assume it will be a slow thing? Thank you in advance.

Sorry to hear, if you like to stop zeovit do this slowly step by step.

Begin to remove 1/3 of the material, reduce the rest step by step over the next 4 – 6 weeks to zero. While doing this keep a close eye on nutrient levels, they might increase so therefore you need to use a alternative to keep them in control.

Same with the additives, reduce them to 50% and reduce the rest step by step over the next 4 – 6 weeks to zero.

Thank you! I was starting to see good results so I am a bit disappointed. Maybe I will return in the future when I am not traveling so much. Thanks again to you and Jacky for helping me so much! You both make it so easy and comforting to know you are so available! Take care.

A little sad to hear the news, coral reefs are always beautiful and colorful, it makes people happy and relaxed. Come back anytime and share this interest together.
