Default Is Cyno Normal for New Zeovit Converted System

Per the title, I am just 5 days in converting to Zeovit from Refugium/Skimmer system. Today My tank has Cyno on rock work and small amount on sand bed. Currently dosing 3/4 L Zeo media, 3 hours on/off. 4 drops of ZeoBac and 0.8 mls Zeostart. That is all Im dosing. Prior to Zeo I was running Nitrates at 2.5 and Phosphate 0-0.02. Today I am at nitrate 5 and Phosphate at 0 (have stayed at 0 since first day). I know Cyno can be a side effect for Zeovit. Is there anything I should change or try before it gets worse or just stay the course and hope it fades away. Is this pretty much normal for a new Zeovit tank? I have not had Cyno in my system for about a year back when I dosed Vinegar.

Not that early. The issue is ur po4 dropped to zero.
Zero po4 is actually bad and promot cyano.
Bump up your po4 a bit either by reducing zs or decreasing reactor flow...also start dosing zb with cs.

Still learning the symbols, your saying dose Coral Snow with the ZeoBac? At the same time or mix together than dose?

If there is a problem with Cyanobacteria, it is usually possible to mix Zeo Coral Snow (2) at a dose of 1:2, Zeo Bac (1)

For example: water volume 100L/25 US gallons
2ml Zeo Coral Snow Mix 1 drop Zeo Bac (mix for 5 minutes, no need to turn off Skimmer)

If the situation is serious, the maximum dose of Zeo Coral Snow can be x 4 times

Also check if Ro/di water is good
Reduce feeding
Iodine dose, temporarily stop adding
Replace Zeo Activated Carbon (changed once every 2 weeks) and clean it several times a day
Toothbrush cleaning, water pumping vacuum sand siphon, Skimmer wet, filter socks every other day

I test RODI water quarterly with ICP test. I will order coral snow today. I don’t dose Iodine. I will try try putting a sample in peroxide to rule out spirulina.
