    I'm looking to run Zeo on my 35G Cube but I am trying to understand all this but my brain is still foggy. I need help either finding or making a Nano media reactor. Plus if you could point me to some good videos explaining the process and what supplements they have and what is what.

    Thanks for the help and guidance.

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    Kyle have you gone to Zeovite.com? Its got the form and dosing instructions, basically the format.

    I am one of those people that thinks the pastels of Zeo is very attractive.

    Shin is running a Zeo tank now too.

    One day I would love to go full Zeovite.

    CUNA on RC and R2R is running the bomb of a Zeovite system, sigh so beautiful.

    Kyle, I'm running a hybrid Zeo tank. I am running EcoBak for nutrient reduction, but have been dosing some Zeo products as color enhancers and SPS food. I have noticed quite a difference in the short time I have been dosing the Zeo products (~2 months). You can readily find Nano Bio Pellet rectors, but Zeo reactors are harder to find in small sizes and footprints.

    I dont run a ZEOvit system, but i do have a small biopellet reactor that might fit the bill if you go a similar route to FaceOfDeceit. its nothing fancy, and you may have more of a budget to go with something a little better.

    Anyway, im using the CPR nano tumbler.

    those CPR tumblers just overflow the effluent over the top - from the research I've done, I believe the most effective way to run pellets is to input the effluent directly into the intake of the protein skimmer...

    Correct, but this tumbler and skimmer are in the same chamber with the skimmer intake right next to the tumbler so I fail to see the issue.

    build it! all it is is a media reactor with a free moving chamber on the inside.

    Hey Kyle! I have been using this magnet floating reactor for a few+ months now, I LOVE it. Did a short review on it too.

    And yes, as Cheryl suggested, you should ask on ZEOvit site as well even tho it's not as active as 3reef tho. Do as they say.
