Hello Nick, I just think that something because of live rock get lost in the translation. Basically fresh live rock from the sea in a good quality works best to get a tank running stabile but they do not have to come from a system running zeovit already. Such rock can be used also but there should not be a difference if the system where they are coming from is maintained well running nutrient poor stabile. Another choice is using dry rock but it takes a lot of time until such a system gets stability of biology plus you do have to make sure it does not leach anything.

Because of the decreased poly expansion of millepora corals a low potassium level could be the reason. Please check the level as soon as possible. What also can be helpful is dosing iodine from my experience especially with this kind of corals.

Hello to all!
So, starting in November 2015, when I first started using the Zeovit system, until November 2018, there was a period of continuous failures. And although I had 10 years of experience in the maintenance of corals before, Zeovit did not go with me. I thought my problem was that I did not fully understand the Zeovit system and switched to Tropic Marin, but the problems with the death of corals continued.
I was already desperate and was going to give up my hobby when a Koralenzucht local dealer advised to check the leakage of current into the water from one of the pumps. I had such suspicions before, but I replaced all the pumps with new ones in the aquarium and this did not help. To check his suspicions, he gave me a grounding device for checking from his demo tank in the store (the dipstick is lowered into the water, and the other end is connected to ground).
And a miracle, everything was fine, and in his tank, from where he pulled out the cover, on the contrary, the problems started, the corals closed their polyps and looked bad. He hooked up a ground up and everything also fell into place.
Already 3 months, as the corals grow, polyps are revealed and everything is wonderful. The only thing I dont like is that most of the corals were shared with me by the owners of Zeovit systems and the colors of these corals were much more beautiful.
Since I still have Koollenzucht zeolit-reactor and the problem of failures was found, I think I will soon return to the Zeovit system.
I'm interested in a gradual upgrate (switching) from the Tropic Marin system to the Zeovit system without harming corals.
I have a number of questions:
A gradual switching from one salt to another, how many percent do replace salt with Korallenzucht salt?
How to smoothly move from one type of bacteria to another? Do I have to give both kinds at the same time?
Zeovit uses Zeo-start, zeo-food and sponge power for denitrification, and NP-bakto-ballance + bacteria in Tropic Marin. How to gradually replace one product with another.
Thanks in advance to all who respond.

Looks like Acropora Tenuis. In Zeovit system, polyps were yellow and the tips were purple. In my tank it's look completely green.

Hello Nick, great to hear that you where finally able to find the problem. If you plan on reusing the complete ZeoVit system I would recommend you to start slow. If you like to get a recommendation please post some actual details of your system in the case that anything has changed:

https://zeovit.com/forums/showthread.php?t=14

Switching salt is not really problematic from my experience, usually most do a weekly water change of ~ 10%, once you have used up the TM salt just use the korallenzucht salt instead.

If you start using ZeoVit again, just reduce the dosage of the other products to 50%, than reduce the rest step by step over a 3 week period to zero.

Thank you in advance.

For a net water volume of 310 liters I would recommend you to start dosing as follows:

1. Place 0.8 liter zeovit in a Zeo Reactor. Water flow around 300 liters per hour. Connect the reactor pump to a clock timer and run the reactor pump with a 3 hour on / 3 hour off / 3 hour on interval. Please make sure the zeolite is not exposed to air while the pump is switched off. Clean the material daily. Leave the zeolite 4 weeks in the filter until you do the first change out. This is the first changing interval, others could be lengthen to 6 – 8 weeks.

2. Place 0.3 liters activated carbon in a filter sock and keep it in a passive water flow in your sump, changed every 30 days. Knead the carbon daily to keep the surface clean. Most users get perfect results with korallenzucht carbon.

3. Dose 3 drops ZeoBac daily for the first 2 weeks, flowed by a 2 – 3 x weekly dosage of 3 drops. Dose 0.3 ml ZeoStart 2 x daily (morning & evening). Dose those in front of the Zeo reactor pump while it is switched on.
