Hi , i have a blue plus reefbar that all the leds (15) from 410-450 are burnt out i have stripped it down and planning to use true 395nm leds which have a spread from 380 - 405nm ,120 degree lense a total of 36 with a diffuser and i am planning on using a dimmer control . My current lighting is 3 x Orphek v4 gen2 (old version diff spectrum in 2020 units) , 2 x OR3 and a radion pro . Tank is 1000L but the light distribution is missing something i suspect some UV's are out its ok along the front under a blue plus bar so i was going to try the UV bar across the middle tank is full of sps from colonies to a lot of new frags as ive just transformed and removed a load of stags. The question is using 395nm will i do damage to the corals i intend to take it very slow with the intensity .

All Kessil lamps have true UVA chips in them. You won't damage the corals with 395 nm unless you hit them with WAY too much intensity.

at a 54 x 30 x 30 tank, you'd need 2-3 of the A360X units, depending on if you're running a mixed reef or a more SPS dominant tank.
