I recently moved and while I’ve seen threads on acclimating corals to new lights I haven’t seen any on acclimating corals to the same lights after moving. My corals spent about 36 hours in the dark. My lights are on a schedule to slowly get brighter over 30 minutes. Will I bleach my corals if I keep the schedule? I can’t seem to find solid information.

If they were used to a certain intensity and duration time per day I would stick with that. I dont think 36 hours is enough time for them to change their biological schedule.
