Zeo versus Cyano... Day 1..

Been mulling over my attack plan for weeks now, full of info and armed to the teeth this is day one of a two week operation..

The armoury



The intelligence



The war zone



Where possible I'll be dosing around 7-8 pm with 3ml coralsnow & 3 drops of Zeobak. At the same time I'll be mixing 1/4 tsp of Zeozym with 1pt tank water, leaving to stand until the next morning..

I'll be taking a fts every night for the record and see how we go.. The current picture is basically dark where the cyano is, the sand is currently clear due to my new orangespotted sand sifting goby..

Wish me luck

Hi Gazz, it's something to do with allowing the zym to mix with the bacteria in the tank water.. Maybe a grown up can elaborate

Just dosed my first one anyway and turned off the skimmer, prob turn it back on in an hour.. My pint of zym is sitting there looking quite tasty actually

Look forward to seeing how you get on, the sand seems to be staying pretty clean now.

I think you've been a victim of predictive text autocorrect Slowly and I can't quite work out the question

Sorry, question was are you running the full zeovit system too ,as in the zeovit reactor with the zeovit stones. Or is it purely just the products above to clear the cyano?

From the pictures it doesn't look like you have a problem with cyano.
