For the types of corals you want, I don't think you need/want to do a zeovit system.

Typically.
It's intended strip the system if compounds and nutrients. (ULN)

of which,
LPS corals are not fond of, as they typically come from more nutrient rich environments.

It's a type of probiotic / bacteria rich system, if you will.

There are many threads of LPS dominated tanks running it, they seem to just dose more AA and feed the corals more heavily and don't burn their lights too high.

It's a ton more work and manipulation & precision for a typical non SPS dominated tank.

some of the products work well without the reactor and other don't. Most people use the troubleshooting and the amino acid products without the reactor
