Heya folks.

Just looking for some advice on settings for the AI Hydra 26. I have a 60 gal cube 24x24x24. I've watched the BRS video on them testing this light in my tank size but I'm just asking if a better spectrum setup is out there. My concern for the recommended spectrum is it is set very high.

BRS recommend:
UV 110%
Violet 110%
Royal blue 115%
Blue 115%
Green 10%
Deep red 10%
Cool white 50%

I've set it to to parts one regular and one high noon which is ran for a few hours mid day that it ramps up to then ramps down from my regular setting.

Regular setting:
UV 77%
Violet 77%
Royal blue 81%
Blue 81%
Green 7%
Deep red 7%
Cool white 25%

High noon:
UV 110%
Violet 110%
Royal blue 115%
Blue 115%
Green 10%
Deep red 10%
Cool white 25%

My times are:
6:00am-7:00am ramp to regular.
7-9 regular
9-10 ramp to high noon.
10-2 high noon.
2-3 ramp back to regular
3-5 regular
5-6 ramp down.
6pm lunar phase kicks in till midnight.

I have it set to acclimate for 3 weeks right now.

Any help would be great
Thanks.
