Vertex ZeoVit Starter Kit
Zeolith-based probiotic filtration has gained a strong following over recent years and rightly so. By utilizing the nutrient processing traits of selective bacteria strains as well as a substrate facilitative to their metabolic needs, Zeolith-based probiotic filtration effectively creates Ultra Low Nutrient (ULN) environments that most closely mimic reef environments.

ZEOvit Zeolite Reactor Media
ZEOvit consists of three different sized untreated and all natural Zeoliths of highest quality. For best results it should be used in a filter. If used in combination with ZEObak and ZEOfood, ZEOvit will safely remove nitrate and phosphate from the aquarium. With patience and over time the water quality in your tank will reach nearly natural levels. This will result in natural colors and growth rates.
ZEObak Nutrient Additive
The value of bacteria in saltwater aquariums is one of the most underappreciated water quality parameters by aquarists. Planktonic bacteria provide corals with nutrients necessary for optimal growth and color. ZEObak contains various types of bacteria and when used in combination with ZEOfood, corals are able to take up the planktonic bacteria. Experimental studies have shown that ZEObak and ZEOfood provide more intense coral colors immediately after dosing. THE essential microorganism solution for a healthy, well-balanced and efficient bacterial fauna in a tank. ZEObak contains several bacterial strains, used in combination with ZEOfood and ZEOstart building up bacteria plankton.
- Dose directly into the tank.
- If possible switch off the skimmer briefly.
- Dosing: 1 drop per 25 gallons/100 liters once or twice a week, depending on tank stocking.
ZEOstart 2 Tank & Coral Accelerator
ZEOstart accelerates the cycling process in new tanks. Fishes, hard and soft corals can be added safely in approximately 3 weeks after adding water to a new tank. ZEOstart should also be used in tanks that are already running the ZEOvit system. ZEOstart brings out amazing metallic colors in Acropora, Montipora, Stylophora and Pocillopora. Soft corals grow faster and show better polyp extension. Skimmers produce up to 100% more dark skimmate than before dosage of ZEOstart. Dosing: directly into the tank 1-2 drops per 250 gallons/1000 liters per day. This product is HIGHLY concentrated.
ZEOfood 7 Coral Food w/Amino Acids
ZEOfood contains amino acids and vitamins for optimal coral growth. ZEOfood increases bacterial growth that supplies corals with all necessary elements for healthy growth.
If used in combination with ZEObak, levels of nitrate and nitrite are reduced. ZEOfood can also be used in aquariums where ZEObak is not used to substantially accelerate the growth of beneficial bacteria. This forms the basis of biological recovery and promotes coral coloration in nutrient-poor aquariums. Dosing: directly into the tank 1-2 drops per 25 gallons/100 liters per day.
