Usually, no nutrient supplement is needed at the current stage. Even if NO3 and PO4 are 0, there are many zooplankton, light, carbon sources, etc., and coral is a good indicator. If you are willing to try, Zeo CV will not bring NO3 and PO4

Don't forget Zeo Bac x10 days after every change to ZeoVit material

This is the " look" of each stage, for your reference

ZEOvit phases depend on the nutrient level & coral appearance. Nutrients are relatively high[with "pooled-reserves"] & corals are dull in coloration. Polyp-extension may or may not be present.

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

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

Update: I just changed out 90% Zeolite rocks and am adding 3 drops of ZeoBak for 10 days. I am dosing the Zeo Start twice a day, morning and evening. Am I suppose to run the Zeo Reactor pump 24/7, where it was before I changed the Zeolites? Or am I to run it 3 hrs on 3 hrs off for how many days? If so, is this the protocol after each Zeolite change? Thanks in advance!

After the first replacement, the interval was used "within two weeks", and if the coral was healthy, the ZeoVit reactor was switched to continuous flow, and the reactor flow rate was 75 US gallons per hour. Use a small container to collect the reactor outlet for 30 seconds, volume x 120, for hourly flow

Yes, my reactor flow is 75 gph. Corals look good so keep the reactor on 24/7?

After the first replacement of the ZeoVit material, [still remain "interval" for 2 weeks] Zeo Bac x10 days. After 2 weeks, if the coral is healthy, switch to continuous flow

"Interval time" = 3hr on, 3hr off

Lets wait another 2 weeks before changing the reactor flow to continuous as Jacky has mention. Just do this if all corals are doing fine, otherwise lets keep the interval for another week.
