Do you supplement any Zeovit products in your non-Zeo system? If yes what do you use?

Thanks

We dose with Coral Snow on a regular basis and others such as Sponge Power sometimes.

I'm working towards the full Zeo system as I have seen the great benefits of using some of the additives I have come to try more and more. The ones that I have noticed make the most dramatic results would be Sponge Power and Spur2. You have to be very careful with Spur2 though...

I too, also use a full Zeovit system, but did use certain Zeovit products in the beginning when both my systems were not a full Zeo System.

Products I used in a non full Zeo System were:
- Coral Snow
- Pohls Extra
- Coral Vitalizer
- Zeo Food7

NO to ZEO.

Lost a lot of SPS in about 4 days after running ZEO system for 6 month.
All seemed OK but all of sudden decided to increase the flow through reactor and bang ! $450 worth of coral gone to the coral heaven.

I don't do full Zeo. I was doing Coral Snow, Coral Vit and Amino's. I ran out of Snow and saw no difference when I stopped. I ran out of Amino's and noticed color and growth slow. Once I started with Amino's again, color got better and growth took off.

I'll now always use the Amino's, I may not may not keep using Coral Vit. I am on the fence about Pohl's Xtra. I doubt I will ever go Full Zeo and often thought about Zeo Spur, but feel it's to risky.

If you are dosing amino acids what are you dosing for a bacteria culture to work with the aminos?

I am interested in the Zeo products but I mostly have LPS and a few softies and only 1 SPS right now. I've heard that Zeo is only good for SPS and can be detrimental to other corals, any truth to this? Any suggestions on what Zeo products I should start with to see if there is any benefit in my tank?

Thx

The only additive that's going to cause problems is Spur2.

From your description, the the products that will be most relevant to your livestock are Amino Acid LPS, Pohl's Xtra and Sponge Power. Following the instructions, you shouldn't have any issues.

Here's the thing about Zeovit (and all Probiotic systems in general) that 90% of people have problems with: kH = 7.0 - 8.0. This does not apply to the additive products.
