Low potassium levels have following characteristics: Montipora stop growing, colors are dull to grey, good coloration without potassium is not possible. Poccilopora and Stylopora with low potassium levels look like they have been out of the water in the air, polyps are retracted and color is light without depth and washed-out looking. Blue Acropora are also appear washed-out. Seriatopora can show complete tissue necrosis within a few days. Turbinaria Reniformis stops growing. Dosing: 1ml per 25 gallons per day.

ZEOvit ZEOspur2 Concentrate
ZEOspur 2 is a product of permanent development of the Zeovit system. It results from our practical experience of keeping corals with extreme coloration. With this trace element solution it is possible to influence the amount of zooxanthellae in the coral tissue. The coral itself has more energy for growth because the reduced zooxanthellae density requires less energy. Controlled reduction of zooxanthellae density for Acropora, Anacropora or Montipora. The reduction of zooxanthellae in the outer layers brings out the colors from deeper layers. To maintain intensity of highly colored corals. Results can be seen in as little as 24 hours after dosing. Recommended in any tank system. Dosing: 1 ml per 25 gallons every 8-10 days - This product is highly concentrated! Do not to change dosing recommendations.
