I will suggest start using the ABEV once you reach ULNS.

I'm leaving tomorrow from triton to AF. Can I hold the same amount I'm measuring for the AF 123? The dosage is based on 8KH

I will recommend that you dose a bit less and observe the system consumption. If it consume the same amount of Alk then you can continue dosing the same.

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

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

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.
