How much are you dosing?

Sorry for all those questions......
Sorry for the typo. Yes, it is ICP test, and I have tested B-Balance, Xtra, Booster, SPG, and Sponge Power. Anyhow, I don't think I have the right position to explore my findings here.

Yes, the purpose of dilution is main to overcome doser resolution/accuracy limitation.

Shih, no need to discuss your icp test results. May get you into legal trouble..
However, actions speak louder than words and your decision to use less of the products you had tested says a lot.

Thanks for that information..

And .. Absolutely stunning photos of happy happy frags!!

from Zeovit forum, did you use followed these ?

1) Use RO (hot) boiling water to first clean all surfaces that the solution will be in contact with. This includes tubing, utensils, containers. Do not let them sit open to air for extended periods, try to work within <60 minutes.

2) Use RO (cooled) boiled water for use as the dilute. Your hands should never come in contact with any surfaces or solutions you work with. Try to work in a clean environment.

I can understand you are not in the position to show the results of the product ICP testing.
But as you moved to dosing of the separate elements, we can only assume the KZ bottles contain a too big mix in certain quantities of all elements, with 1 overwhelming.
Nevertheless, I am also interested in some more information as I use K and B-balance as well.

I did not follow exactly. Just distilled water with some care. I think it is good enough if contents are trace element, but if with some kind of bacteria, then dilute distilled water may not good enough.

They are just some normal frags, not even rare coral 😄

Zeovit does not share each bottle contents like AquaForest products, but the purpose of each bottle is very clear and did work as they claimed.

Sorry for late reply. I don't remember exactly which coral from old tank which not these days but the red dragon indeed in tank for a very long time, 3+ year at least

Here is my new youtube video which I gave her a almost 10 seconds focus.

Hope you like it.

Nice! Love your filming. It's improving. Which camera and lens did you use for the video?

There are lots excited frag shots on FB, but having reef aquarium many years, I believe that in the end, true performance all comes down to one thing : FTS.
FTS is the way that enable us to tell a good tank or just an OK tank.

A new growing tip always looks nice, bright, dramatically show multiple colors in a close up picture, while fist size mother colony may not give us same performance, even less in a FTS.

Below are a few mother colony shots that I found from my existing files. There are more to shot later.
