NEW AF tank from ZEOvit

So I am going to try AF after many many many successful years of ZEOvit with my new 25 lagoon. I went to my LFS and picked up just about everything they had in stock.

I have been reading and reading and have seen a lot of successful AF tanks, so I wanted to give it a shot. Plus I travel for work and I don't want to have to worry about ZEOlith and shaking rocks, etc. daily this way my wife/kids and dose when I am gone.

Here is what I bought.

Switching from Red Sea Pro to AF Reef Salt
Ricco Food
CA Plus
MG Plus
KH Plus
AF Phyto Mix
CArbon
Phosphate Minus (will run in a IM desktop reactor)
AF Amino Mix
Garlic Oil
AF Energy
FishV
Iron
Kalium
AF Vitality
AF Build
Pro Bio S
Iodum
Strontium
Florine

Tank and Equipment
25 Lagoon
2 x IM Desktop Reactors 1 with AF Carbon and 1 with Phosphate Minus
2 x MP10wQD
IM Desktop Skimmer (love it)
Upgraded return pump
Apex 2016 w/ATK and Lunar
Radion Gen 4 Pro
ArtFully Acrylic lid (ordering this weekend)
25 watt heater
Apex DOS and DDR (not online yet)


Fish and Corals
10 x Zoas from Jason Fox
Frogspawn
Huge pile of GSP (kids wants color and flow)
SPS - none yet but will be adding soon.



Wanted to get some dosing suggestions and recommendations for everything. I only have a 25 and dosing is basically a drop per 27, so I can't really do a 3/4 drop, so I wanted to see if 1 drop is good, should I skip days, etc.

How many Grams of Carbon should I run
How many Grams of Phosphate Minus should I run
How often with the fish food supplements, etc.


I am looking forward to watching my tank grow with this product and see how it compares to ZEOvit.

My suggestion would be to start with 1/2 dose on all . If it were my tank I would start by dosing 1 drop every other day.

As far as the carbon is concerned I would use about 100ml maybe just a touch less.

Using the Phos minus I'd go with somewhere between 25-100ml .

This information can be found here at these links.

The info for the fish supplements can be found here...

And last but not least the guide is a great tool to help with all products.
