Has anyone ever conducted a comparative analysis between ecotech AB+ spectrum vs the kessil logic spectrum? Meaning, is there data that exists to show if one of these spectrums if better at growing coral at a faster rate, all other things equal? If the spectral range was imposed on the others, which is wider? I’m very curious about this and I’m sure it could probably help reefers in purchasing the right light in a future purchase.

If you want to match or get close to the look of ab+, then the following settings are pretty close.
Color 25-40%, violet 100%, red & green 5-10% For me, 25% - 35% color and violet 100% with no R&G worked well. But this was my preference. Running color around 35% to 40% gave me a little more blue and purple in acropora.

Right. I’m not interested in how to match the spectrum really. I’m more interested in their similarities and their comparative ability to grow coral at rapid rates.
 

How do you take care of your tank after the storm? As the electricity and WiFi come back on, how do you get your tank back to normalcy?
