The tank looks good, why are you adding them?

It will be easier on your corals if you start running them for an hour or 2 a day and up the time slowly every week. Watch how your tank reacts.

The lighting did not look consistent front to back uneven intensity if that makes sense and noticable with corals i have had both running for a few days 6pm to 10pm and the UV from 1pm to 10pm on low power and its a lot better the reefbrite make heck of a difference .

What strip is this? Waveform led
I added 2 a Reefbrite xho and a waveform as the waveform is less visable at 395nm its early days as to what benefits they will give but the spread is certainly what i wanted to achieve. I have 3 Orphek Atlantiks ,2 x OR reefbars , 1 x reefbrite and the diy unit and a radion g3pro on the tank so a massive amount of light so its hard to differentiate a single item suspect its a good mix. any comments be appreciated.last night shot with filter
