I would suggest to take out the coral and observe it closely for their eggs or the flatworms directly before dipping them which is additional stress. I am not sure if that really is the problem but I would try to rule it out.

im wondering if there are any benefits of shaking stones twice a day instead of once? im shaking once now during day light period but got possibility to shake it once more at night. worth it?

I understand the meaning, thank you, because I associate the rocking stone with the recent theme flatworm, which makes me confused. I understand this.

I have personally shaken them twice per day. Compared to once per day I have seen a small improvement of coloration and growth. You can shake them a couple of times per day. Basically once per day works well, all other is some kind of fine-tuning for the corals.

Basically all products can be used without the material also but the nutrient reduction process is limited or much lower so you might need to use a different method to keep nutrients under control.

Hello kosiarek84, yes, I found that giving more different nutrient additions in the same day, giving more different nutrients on the same day, and coral color and growth would be better than adding one day apart, which is usually also It happened the next day. However, the addition of all nutritional supplements works best in low malnutrition water quality.

Usually the water quality is low nutrition NP, coral tissue will become lighter, good growth and PE, then you can try to add nutrients, and the nutritional additive amount of coral is a good indicator, at this time NP should have low nutrition ( The system's Zeo basics), [Adding all nutritional supplements works best for low malnutrition water quality. And depending on the appearance of the coral or the condition of the algae, it should be able to supplement it.]
the specific instructions can be found from the basic information


Consider phase 1 the initiatation of ZEOvit method. The basic 4 are used to reduce nutrients in a balanced manner. As nutrients & "reserves" are depleted, the corals become brighter, lighter in appearance & the quantities of the zeo's dosed becomes less.

Enter phase 2[~3-6mos], the corals continue to colorize more & nutrients are becoming more exhausted. During this phase, however, if dosing is stopped for more than a few days, nutrients again begin to rise, & corals become darker. This is due to "pooled-reserves" still remaining available.

Phase 3[5-10months] is characterized by stable nutrients & color appearance of the corals, ie. if the zeo's are not dosed for many days, the N03's/P04's do not increase & coral colors remain fast. In this phase, the stored nutrients are exhausted, as evidenced by the low quantites of Bak/Food7/Start used, with coral color intensive
