Default Personalised advice please

Good evening,

I currently have a 110L QT tank running with approx 25KG live rock and a deltec MCE600! I'm looking to set up a new display tank which will be a TMC signature 900 and would like to try Zeovit method! I have purchased an Avast Vibe reator and have all the zeobak, stones start coral snow on route! My currentl live stock is being held in the QT tank until my main display is up and running! Just wanted some advice about how best to go about setting up! Attached below is the proforma! Details based on new system unless QT details specified!‎

1. Gross water volume of your complete system (incl. sump etc.) - US gallons / UK gallons / liter 252L‎

2. Net water volume (incl. sump etc.) - US gallons / UK gallons / liter - ‎Main display 182L sump volume 70L‎‎

3. Are you using a CaCO2 reactor or other technique - not at present but will be using a TMC v2 1000 reactor with aquamedic hydrocarbonate media with TMC CO2 controller/monitor‎ in new display tank

4. Are you using a PO4 reactor (how long, how long ago, etc.) - No‎

5. Are you using Ozone - No‎

6. Are you using UV - No‎

7. What skimmer are you using (type, rated water volume) TMC reef skim 500 rated for 500L‎

8. What are your actual PO4 and NO3 levels - QT tank PO4 ‎0.25, NO3 10.

9. What are your actual Ca, Alk and Mg levels - QT tank - CA 420, Alk 7, MG 1290
10. What filtration method do you use (refugium, DSB, Miracle Mud, etc.) currently berlin‎ but new tank zeovit, with mud refugium and macro algae

11. Type of light (Watt, color temp, how old, etc.)‎ purchased 2 x AI Hydra LED 95watts per light for new tank

12. What corals do you keep - seriatopora guttatus/hystix and tri colour, pink and green pocilopora‎, purple milka stylo, red acan, branching hammer coral, purple monti plate, toadstool, zoa, Green Hydnophora, Xenia all housed in QT tank at present! Fish - 2 x bangaii cardinals!

13. Tissue color (light or dark) - not sure‎

14. How long has the tank been running ‎ - not running yet - QT been running approx 5 months

15. Why do you want to use the ZEOvit system - keep nutrients low‎ and have been recommended this method over triton

16. Any supplemental dosing (type, amount, why, etc.) ‎seachem Ca, Sr and Mg at present fortnightly water change with approx 15%

17. Live rock (how much, how old, etc.)‎ QT - approx 25kg purchased from someone who had their tank running approx 2 years!

18. Any present problems - bristle worms‎, lol! Slight stripping to guttutus.

As it is a complete new system which needs to be cycled first I would recommend you to use the following method:


Please make sure that the live rock you plan to use comes from a system which does not have accumulated nutrients already.
