Thinking of pulling the trigger on adding a T5 hybrid fixture to the 2 kessil 360we I have now. Currently running them at 95% intensity during peak. What would be the best way to bring in the T5s?

When I added T5s to my Hydra 32HDs, I started at an hour a day during the peak of my lighting schedule and increased it by an hour each week. Once I got to 8 hours, I kept it there. Some hobbyists prefer shorter supplemental lighting periods, some like longer. That will be your preference based on how your livestock reacts and whichever other factors you may consider.
 

Do you quarantine new coral before adding it to your reef tank?
