Thank you
I'm looking into that, but my question is....... Will the Zeolites affect the use of the triton Detox, nothing else.

What is your water change schedule like? Why did triton not advise a water change over the detox. Can you post up your results on here. I know I used fuana marine dino x with zeoites and the dinoflagalattes never went away. You can conitune asking but your probally not going to get a straight answer as none has studied it or experimented on it. Do you already have the detox on hand?

10% water change weekly - 0 RO/DI reading using Tropic Marin Pro Reef. Triton did advise water changes and Detox. Looks like you're singing from the same hymn sheet as myself in regards getting an answer. I'll just proceed with the Detox anyway

You asked this question, maybe you can ask Triton, maybe they have this experience to deal with

This service is not available in my area. If I encountered this problem, I might try to do so. First remove the source of the problem. If the coral TN is reduced by 1/2 of the reactor flow, replace the water by 20% in 10 days and do it 3 times. At the same time, the white light hours / intensity (LED) is reduced, and only Zeo CV is retained in nutritious food. Adjust the skimmer to be wetter.

Toothbrush helper on the rock, Zeo Coral Snow (organic matter, maybe some copper level reduction)

Get a copper test kit and try using copper to filter white cotton

Usually, shrimp, crab, etc. Can't stand such water quality (maybe it's related to the copper concentration), if the system is strong enough, the water quality can be maintained well. If creatures die in large numbers, you may need to watch out for water quality to avoid additional crises

I don't have such practical experience, and I don't know if using copper filter white cotton is in conflict with the Zeo system. Just some ideas / if it was me I would do it. Or rely on more replacement water to refresh the balance.

What was your exact heavy metal? I had high aluminum due to use of marine pure blocks. Triton advised me to use Rowaphos to remove aluminum, which it did, but it depleted my PO4 so much that i got a Dino outbreak. They also mentioned that zeolites can leach aluminum. I dont know if this is true. Ive used zeolites before without problem. You need to double check everything (pumps, magnets, etc.) in your system to rule out contributing metals. I can actually attest that my system does better without zeolites, but every tank is different.
