Anyone have a preset I can download for a FOWLR? All of the signature ones are soo blue. No corals yet so I’d like to at least see my fish.
Thanks!

I would use BRS's AB+ ratios (so as to not blast the tank with light leading to algae), and then bring the white up a good bit. Something like below except take the white up to something like 15-30, to your preference. Or for that matter you could bring up the reds a little bit (not a lot) if you have some of that color in your fish.

Simple fact is you can do whatever you want with a FOWLR tank color wise, it is just that you will want to balance visual aesthetics with keeping the levels low/balanced enough and duration short enough to avoid algae outbreaks, since you don't have the bio-diversity competing for nutrients that you have in a full blown reef.
