Hi All! I recently bought a new AI Prime 16HD as an upgrade over the stock lights/hood for my Biocube32. Need some help on a proper program to run.. Currently I'm running the AB+ @ 70% acclimation. My Clove Polyps went from eight nice heads, down to three. My GSP is seemingly bleaching, even at the bottom of the tank.. I suspect the light settings are too high for the size (depth) of my tank. Any suggested program designed specifically for the Biocube32 running this light, or advice on how to modify the AB+ file to fit my tank size is appreciated.

Also keep an eye on the higher UV.. theres ppl saying lenses got burnt..
AND my GSP didnt even open with 80% blues first..
you really HAVE to use the acclimation mode in order your corals can adapt..

ive even burnt a monti cap first.
Absolutely agree on the burnt lenses on UV Chanel. Mine are bump and black. I don’t go over 40% on uv. I guess they can’t make the lenses out of glass??

They have an acclimation setting that you can run I ran mine for 45 days starting at 40% mine is on an evo. That will probably help
I found an old picture of my bio cube with my rigged prime. I tried to make an acrylic hood to keep the light spill at bay but it looked ugly so I took it off.
