    Ok I'm about 6 months into zeovit on a new system. I've notice a very thin cyano film that can only be seen good at night when actincs come on it's not horrible but it is keeping some of my zoas from opening till I blast em clean. Just need some advice. Any help will be apriciated. Thanks in advanced.

    75 gallon total system volume.
    Mixed reef.
    Nitrates 0
    P04 .02
    Cal 500 cal fluctuates a lil due to still dialing in reactor.
    Alk 10.0 dkh
    Hw marine mix salt.
    0tds fresh water.
    20% wc weekly

    Bin useing zeozyme for about two months now once a week with little to no change.

    The last two times I dosed zeozyme I dried adding zeobac and fermented about 6 hrs and still so far no luck.

    I did try gfo as well to make sure it wasn't algae seems how it is so hard to see but it didn't help so I just took the gfo back out.

    It can be seen here in this pic on the frag rack. Best pic I could get not great though.

    3-4x per week.

    theres 3 combination to try for battling cyano.
    1. Zeozym + zeobak
    2. zeozym + coral snow
    3. Cyanoclean

    If #1 dont work... Try #2. All these method taie a few weeks before u can see the effect.

    Anyway if u want quick solution, u can use red slime remover product. Basically its antobiotix by killing bacs and will rid off all the cyano. But must also 3 day black out. After that, tank will look as good as new.

    Ok thank you I was debating red slim remover just hate to do it cause I had a bad experience with it once where my skimmer didn't skim right for a couple weeks after. But I think I'm going to just give it a go and hopefully it straightens it up. Also is there any other Benafits to zeozym short of rock build up and algae / cyano issues. Or should I stop useing it once my issue is fixed?

    Can still dose every once in a while. But remember not to overdose!
