The basic water parameters seem to be on the high side, we can start by looking at salinity and check if it is correct. What salinity do you use to check?

3. Are you currently using a CaCO2 reactor or other technology part 2 because there is no bioburden
(Close it temporarily, or adjust)

Kh 6.5~75
Ca 400~420
Mg 1250~1300
K+ 380-400

Hi jacky,

I'm using the following refractometer and calibration fluid. Neptune APEX also has salinity probe calibrated with 53000 猶 conductivity solution. Both meters are within same range when checked. I keep second guessing as well and re-calibrating!


Currently no calcium reactor or 2-part dosing. All those levels are from Reef Crystals salt. Only other dosing is ZEO basic 4.

I have last minute business trip for couple weeks so will be automating ZEOstart3 on BRS 1.1ml/min doser and my family will handle ZEObak & Sponge Power.
1:19, ZeoStart3 / RODI water = 100ml of ZEOstart3 will make 2l diluted. Will share the pics once calibrated and completed.

Also, today I re-read this thread and realized I have not changed my lighting spectrum since startup of tank. My 3 Radion XR15 G4 Pro's were set at 30% only blues on.

In the afternoon I adjusted intensity to 60% and 20k color temp. Almost within an hour or so water is noticeably clearing up!!! So maybe the lighting intensity was too dim...

Thanks Nuuze, it looks great. Crystal salt, I have no experience with products. Mg = 1440. Usually the salt mixture on the market, mg will not be this level. Then maybe a difference in salinity, or the possibility of the test package being incorrect
For the same reason, if there is no additional way to add Ca, then it does seem a bit high.

I agree with those levels I even called my kids over to retest with extra eyes! I think, they think I'm crazy...haha

Today I completed doser for ZEOstart3. So my family only has to worry about adding ZEObak and Sponge Power for me while I'm away on business.

1:19, ZeoStart3 / RODI water.
(100ml of ZeoStart3 : 1900ml of boiled and cooled RO/DI = 2000ml)

Example: 0.2mL of ZeoStart3 = 4mL of mixed solution
My actual dose: 0.6ml ZeoStart3 = 12ml mixed solution

BRS Doser runnig for 10 mins = 13ml = 1.3ml/min. So I run doser for 9 mins = 11.7ml.
