Hi wangsz



Your dosing regimen also the ZeoVit quantity you use is fine, no need to change anything. First ZeoVit exchange will be after 4 weeks, than replace 90% of the material.

After each ZeoVit exchange dose ZeoBac daily for 10 days.

If all works well and it your corals are doing fine you can switch your ZeoVit reactor to continuous flow in about 2 weeks after the first ZeoVit exchange.

Basic water parameters looking good, try to keep them as stabile as possible close the NSW in the following ranges:

KH 6.5 – 7.5
Ca 400 – 420 mg
Mg 1250 – 1300 mg
K+ ~ 380 mg

For a nutrient poor environment K+ (potassium) seems to be a important element. I would recommend you to get a test kit for this element also, posting your results.

Can you please additional post some more information about your lighting system, which kind of bulbs exactly, age etc. ?

G.Alexander

The five basic components of the ZEOvit system interact to effectively reduce nutrients and establish water conditions close to the parameters encountered by corals in their natural habitats. The five basic components are:

1. A balanced zeolite mixture (ZEOvit).
2. Microbial Solutions (ZEObak).
3. Combination of bacteria and coral food (ZEOfood)
4. Bacterial food (ZEOstart)
5. Constant filtration with activated carbon

The interaction between ZEObak, ZEOfood, ZEOstart and Zeolite Filter Media (ZEOvit) leads to a reduction in nutrients and the establishment of a nutritional system

Yes. Old version of Food7 is now using Sponge power, especially if you use Live Rock, this is very good.
I don't know the situation of tank, usually 3 times a week, or every other day.

The photoperiod is to short, I would recommend to run the HQI for a minimum of 8 hours, better 10. This if the spectrum of the HQI is adequate should improve the coloration of the corals already. Increase the photoperiod slowly step by step over 2 or 3 weeks. Same with the rest of the lighting system. Bulbs are to old, I would also recommend to change them, over the time the spectrum does shift and they get less intensive.

11. Type of lamp (watt, color temperature, how big, etc.): 2 x 150w HQI,
1. Total water volume of the entire system (including oil sump, etc.) - 300 liters

150w My experience is not enough. Coral color is not easy to emit color, 300L water volume For the height of tank should be at least 50cm high, but also need to consider a wider area of ​​illumination.

In my experience, the 150w HQI lamp usually starts to decay after 3 months (the eye can clearly feel the displacement of the spectrum and becomes slightly green)

Recommended 250w x 2, +t5 blue light, or full T5, or T5+led

Of course, this also depends on the factors of NP.
If NP is close to 0, for 150w HQI, let the corals appear colorful, I think it is not enough.
Can only extend the lighting time, or reduce the lighting, or landscaping corals to improve
