Follow # 12, G. Alexander's recommended dose. Because tank uses dry rock, and tank looks young, biology doesn't seem to be very good. So dose Zeo Bac every other day.

Looks pretty good in every way, and I try to find the source of nutrition. Like G. said, the system may not be able to handle such a large number of fish yet, giving the system some time

Keep it up # 12, Zeo plan

Usually, under normal conditions, NO3 starts to decrease

Don't worry, the nutrition level you posted is not really abnormally high

At present, the focus is on slowly reducing the phosphate. NO3 need not be too worried. It will not have an adverse effect on the corals. NO3 levels will naturally not be measured over time.

Personally, Zeo Coral Snow is optional, and can discharge some unnecessary "dirty"

I believe there is no problem, keep my fingers crossed. Do nt forget to get the correct salinity, so it s more meaningful to measure the Kh Ca Mg level. Hurry and correct the problem

Some news. Yesterday I took water to some shop and ask They If They Can measure salinity for me. Now They contact me and told me that they see on The refractometer 1.028
On my densitometer is 1.025. Now I will Be slowly decreasing it. First problem solved.
Second news
Yesterday I put a lit a bit carbon in The osmo water, today I measure po4 a there was 0.30ppm I found another bucket of carbon, testing it too.
I dont think that in carbon can Be a Lot of phospates... That explains Non stop increasing of po4. Simce yesterday Iam running without carbon. On Monday I order new one.
Now I try measure po4 in my tank and it was 0.07. Yesterday it was 0.14. I hope its going down.
Really thanks to show me The way
Stay tuned and I keep in touch

Very happy to fix the salinity problem, You did very well

Some activated carbons are not only a matter of phosphates, they can also be aggressive, which can lead to stress / growth of corals.

I use Zeo brand activated carbon, this is good, I recommend you

I was checking po4 Today and it was 0.11ppm. A lit a bit higher then yesterday. It jumps a lit a bit. I think when I remove The carbon that it will Be slowly decreasing...

Thank you for the update, the carbon should indeed have caused the problem, lets see if the PO4 level comes down slowly over the next couple of weeks.

I dont know. They was giving me it from big bucket in The shop. I just say how many liters I want. I will ask they for The brand.
My friend, who is running zeovit use Rowa carbon, without any problems. I think every carbon has some phosphates, because its from organic origin, questions is how much.

Are you using the Aquaforest probiotic reef salt? If so that will be the issue because it would be like doubling up the zeo method. I personally would not use it and stick with the Tropic Marin pro reef salt. Its levels are perfect for the zeo system.
