Much Pricier than VGV, but worth every penny. By Lindsey on 9/9/12

Started using the zeovit system about a year and a half ago, had great results, and then about six months ago I tried replacing the zeovit with a cheaper zeolyte product, and the zeostart with VGV to save some cash.
Needless to say it doesn't work nearly as well. The whole thing is terribly unstable, and the cyano has been a constant battle. I was hoping given a couple months it would stabilize, but six months later it is still a mess. I've even tried using just vinegar, because the zeostart smells mostly like vinegar, but I still can't get the nutrient reduction I did with the zeostart.
That tank is scheduled for a major renovation this fall, but when I bring it back on line I will be going back to the zeovit system including zeostart, which is worth every penny.
