I took down my earlier 29G last August and built a whole DIY 55G system with sump. Total water volume is 70G right now. I dose component 123 and NP pro with a GHL doser 2. I prefer using AF reef salt and dose Pro bio S manually. The system also has 1 liter of siporax and 1/2 liter of Life biofil. Here are some images from my relatively young system....

Hello and welcome! Id like to start with two questions. First what should be the dosing schedule for abve...im currently set at 2 drops of each, which i currently dose every second day all at the same time..is it right?

Second...i have a rusty deposit in my dosing container of comp 1...is it normal? Ive been using comp 123 and abve for 1 month now...with reef salt

Hi,

Generally AF recommend dosing Amin and vitamin together one night and the other two the alternate day. I prefer starting with half the recommended dose and observe how the system work. Then after few months depending how the system reacts you can increase the dose to full dose.

The component 1 contains iron and its normal that its get deposited like rust sometime. I get that too. I generally shake the container once in every other day that keeps it mixed condition.

Hope this help.

I fixed that problem - KZ Coral System 1-2-3-4 don't do that,,,maybe i'll come back to Comp ABC when AF include a free magnetic stirrer :spin2:

I would suggest to first get the reef salt and start doing weekly water changes 10% for next 4-6 week. That will slowly drive the system towards the AF suggested parameters. Then start adding Pro Bio S and NP Pro in case you want to run ULNS at half dose. Once you reach ULNS then you can supplement with ABEV. I think you will also need to dose to maintain your parameter but that comes later. Hope this helps you.

Hi Anirban,

I have been using AF Reef Salt for the last 6 months. Tank info:

ELOS 120XL with Sump about 120 gal total volume mixed reef (SPSes, LPSes, Bounces, JB)
Dosing Component 1,2,3 at 83ml daily
Dosing Pro Bio S and NP Pro 4 drops nightly
Dosing AF ABVE 4 drops every other night
Light Hybrid, 4 ATI T5 Bulbs and one Kessil AP700
Alk 8
Cal 450
Mag 1400
PO4 .03
Nitrate <1

Everything seems finally very happy but I would like to automatic things as much as possible. I just bought Pacific Sun Kore 5th Doser and Stirrer. It could dose drops nightly for me for Pro Bio S and AF ABVE. But since the tubing will add some length before the liquid could hit the water. And because only 4 drops nightly, I assume that every other night it would dose the old drops in the tube :headwally: and the new drops will get pull into the tubing and probably wait for a day for two before it get push out. Would that cause any problem? I haven't tried it yet but very soon in a few days.

Hope you could help. Thanks!

Hey, sorry for being late. I was lost between different posts and dont know how to turn on the update alert. I just saw your text.
Your assumption is correct. It will be stuck in the tube and the old one will be dosed only. There is one more issue. Did you got the magnetic stirrer with the dosing station? B and E needs to be shaken before dosing. Also the amino (A), BuilD (B) and Vitamin (V) needs to be kept at cool places or preferably refrigerate for prolong shelf life.

Thanks.

bemofunny
07/06/2017, 01:47 AM
hmm, that is not good!!

Yes, I got the stirrer with it because I know Pro Bio S, B and E needed to be shaken before dosing. For keeping A,B and V in cool places, my house is always cool cause I WFH most of the time and my wife can't stand the heat. In fact, I wear jacket inside the house during summer lol.

So the only issue I am worried about is the liquid stay in the tubing a few days before getting into the water. Would that be a problem? Probably more than a few days. Only 4 drops daily that is a lot of drops in the tubing....:headwalls:

Any suggestion? besides from "program" my son to do it for me while I am away from home? It got to be away...

Another question I have. Sometimes I got high PO4 may be from feedings but still have very low in Nitrate like 1ppm. I want my Nitrate to be around 5ppm so I searched the forum and ordered Phosphate Minus and used it only once. My zoas weren't happy so I stopped. Would it be possible that Phosphate Minus having a negative effect on zoas or perhaps somethings else? I only use 1/2 of recommended doses and running in a reactor.

For the first part regarding dosing, for long term storage amino and vitamin are not good without refrigeration. As far liquid inside a tube concern possibly they will be good for 4-5 days. I was dosing them but now I dont because my tank is not ULNS. You don't dose amino and vitamin when the tank is not ULNS.

For the second part, why you use PO4 minus? How high is the PO4? You should be good if its stay below 0.03ppm or so. If you use phosphate minus you are stripping off your PO4 too quickly and generally zoa and softy dont like that. If it gets high due to feeding just wait it will come down by its own if you have available NO3 in the system.

Hi Anirban,

I have stupid questions:

You mentioned "vitamin" but which product of AF is vitamin?
Also according to the manual, it only mention of keeping Pro Bio S in refrigerator after open but didn't mention anything else. Could you please clarify?

I also figure out a way to keep most of the vitamin in refrigerator by only keep a small portion of it at my doser enough to last for like a week. Then use the bottle from refrigerator to refill the one in my doser weekly. Would this work?

Thanks,

Thanks,

AF V is AF vitamin. They changed those names. B is build, A is amino and E is energy. So together they are ABEV.
Vitamin and amino are heat sensitive things. If you want to keep them active and working its better to refrigerate them. In presence of higher temperature they slow loose their activity and degrade.
If you can use small portion for the doser and refill it weekly then it possibly should work without issue.

Good evening Anirban,
I have a 120 mixed reef...lots of rock, with fish and softies. I have a decent skimmer in my sump and 3 Brightwell Aquatics Xport NO3 dimpled bricks in the sump as well.
To reduce nutrients-nitrate and phosphate-which products should I purchase? I have been using Pro Bio F for about a week. Will this product on its own, reduce NO3 and PO?
Thanks.

Hi,

What is your current NO3 and PO4 readings?
For large tank such as yours Pro bio S and NP pro is recommended but it needs some time. AF also sell a product called Life bio Fill which is bacteria seeded substrate and can immediately start reducing NO3 and PO4. You can use any of them or both if needed. Pro bio F is more useful for small nano tanks but you can still use it alternatively with these.
Thanks

07/25/2017, 08:52 AM
Thank you for your response! I run GFO and Phosban, so PO4 is not so much an issue as nitrates, which I have a hard time keeping below 40ppm. It's a relatively new tank-6 months-so things are still settling in.
It was my thought that the Pro Bio F, in conjunction with the Xport bricks and the large amount of rock, would facilitate the bacteria to reduce my nitrates. I have no algae issues and the tank looks great but my nitrate level is unacceptable to me. I will look into your recommendations and thanks again.

There should not be any issue but you can use siporax alternatively and stack them in your sump. They work quite well once established with bacterial colonies.
AF is a bacterial driven system and your system is quite new. So, it will take few months to establish the bacterial colonies and reduce the NO3 load. In the mean time try to feed less if possible so the NO3 level don't go all out.

Hey, if I remember correctly you have a core 5th doser. It can dose on alternate days. Open the doser software and then go to advanced dose. There you can programme which days of week you want the pumps to dose. :lol2:

yeah I know, I have this product for 3 months now and still, couldn't use it. First, the sw is so buggy and hard to use. Crashing constantly lol. Then finally they actually implemented a good number of suggestions to improve the product tremendously from UX perspective. But the latest software lacking the Stirrer and simple custom dosing like every other day. Which is what I really need to dose AquaForest ABVE. Oh well, I have been waiting, I will be patiently waiting some more :-).

Hello, As soon as the bottles of Triton are on, I switch to AquaForest. I have made a schedule how to start. Is this correct or should I do it differently?
I replace the triton for AF 123, start with pro bio s and np pro to get ulns.
Once it's ulns I start with half doses with abev.
Is this right?

Is it necessary to use a reactor with phosphate minus and zeomix? Or can you stay ulns with np pro as well?

Thanx!!!

You can not use them together as they contain similar elements but once you are done with component 123 then you can start component abc.

Hi Anirban,

Thanks for your reply. Another question that I got confused with others too that I am dosing Pro Bio S. My understanding is that these are bacterias. I do have media in my sump like MarinePure BioMedia which bacterias suppose to grow on. So why is that I continue to dose Pro Bio S everyday? I understand that NP Pro is food source so that I dose everyday but why Pro Bio S?

Thanks!

Anirban
08/21/2017, 07:10 PM
You are right. The only reason to do so is some bacteria are removed by skimming and dosing replenish it back. But the bacteria also multiply so you can skip the daily dosing once you have a mature colony of bacteria and they are performing well for you. But till then try to dose regularly.

It will take time depending on the system to reach ULNS. For some its a month and for others its few months. It also depends on feeding habits. Triton depends heavily on fuge and even if you feed more your nutrient stay low but now without the fuge you need to really control your feeding habits if you wish to reach ULNS.

Everything is going well so far.
Four days ago, phosphate minus and life biofil started.
Phosphate was 0.049 when four days ago I used 75 grams of phospate minus and 24 hours later it was 0.012. Now 4 days later it is 0.046. What should I do? No3 is 0.75

Last night, I replaced the medium for new, 150 grams of 300 liter tank. Yesterday it was 0.048 and now it's 0.025

If your salinity is higher... your main parameters will be much higher.
That's why your Ca and Mg are so high.

Day 12; phosphate 0.025
Day 13; phosphate 0.074
now replace 200 grams of phosphate minus

Today i will check again

When will the fluctuation of the value be over and why has it been developed so quickly?

Day 13; phosphate 0.074
replace 200 grams of phosphate minus
Day 15 (yesterday) phosphate 0,037
Day 17 phosphate 0,043
Replace 200 grams phosphate minus
Day 19 phosphate 0,040 (yesterday)

What i test is Po4 from the watercolumn,i think a lot Po4 in the rocks. Is zeomix a option?

You are using an ULR tester right. There is a possibility of PO4 leaching from rock and it will take some time to go away. Zeo absorbs ammonia and helps in NO3 reaction mainly. If with a ULR tester you can keep it maintained at 0.02-0.04 its fine for now. Slowly when the system mature it will reduce more. Where is your NO3?

No, i test it with a Hanna Phosphorus not the ulr phosphate . I have already converted the values ​​into phosphorus because most people can not have the value of the phosphorus.

No3 is about 0.25 - 0.75

I dont think Hanna sells a ULR phosphate its ULR phosphorus (ppb) only. Yeah just keep it somewhere lower than 0.04 for now and you should be good. After few months the rocks will stop leaching the PO4 and then you can lower it more if you want.

Hi Anirban,

I finally have my doser to work with AF ABVE but I am thinking of dumping it when it's done. It's a pain to dose only 3 drops once a day and has to be refrigerated. Do you know if AF is coming out with a diluted version of ABVE?

Thanks,

If your room temperature stays at 75 or lower you can skip the refrigeration part.
