I've got my 25 gallon all-in-one tank up and running and I've started adding livestock and corals to it so it's time to figure out the dosing. The plan for the tank in the beginning was to run the KZ zeo system so I purchased most of the components from them before deciding to go AF. Can I use the zeo supplements in place of their AF counterparts for now? I'd prefer not to waste the money spent on the KZ stuff but I know that all of it won't be needed. I am dosing the basic AF system, not ULNS

Here's a picture of the tank along with a picture of the supplements that I have. I'm currently just dosing bio s at 1 drop daily and started my first week of alternating Garlic Oil and Fish V at 1 drop mixed in with LRS nano once a week.

I would not recommend using 2 different types of carbon source and 2 different types of bacteria source, just not sure how they will interact with one another. The others should be ok, I do not see a problem there.

Thanks for the reply. I have a quick question, what do you mean by carbon source? Is that the food for the bacteria? I am currently just using Bio S, that's the bacteria source right?

I've been through the guide a couple times but I'm still a little confused by the system.
