I recently purchased a used fluval m60, and I plan to put an AI Prime 16HD on it? I was wondering what sort of settings I could put on it. I like bluer looking lights settings, but not too blue, just enough to have it to pop. So I was thinking maybe the ab+ setting, or the saxby, with some modifications. I just am not too good at what I should turn down, and by how much. SO some specifics would very helpful in my decisions. I plan On doing alot of lps in a mixed reef. Acans, hammers, torch, frogspawn, octospawn ,zoas, etc etc. I want just one or 2 sps near the top for the looks.

Any suggestions, I don't see alot of m60 advice considering its discontinued and not a popular model. I was thinking the david saxby settings, but less white because I like the blue color pop? I am just not too sure considering the m60 is taller than most 20-25 gallon tanks.

Here’s my light settings and what my tank looks like at a year old. Two AI Prime HDs and its a 20 gallon IM Peninsula. Good luck with your tank! I love my lights and they grow everything for me

Looks beautiful, What do you think about the saxbys settings, less white, and bump the uv violet and blues up?

I’ve never used any setting but the one I posted. You just go to the quick setup button and make it look like my screen shot :) I didn’t even base mine off anything I just fiddled with it until I liked the way everything looked in the tank

I don’t know how to do that. Just go to easy set up (bottom right) and put in the values I gave you :)
Go to the star underneath the setting and it will say share preset. Or just copy link. I'm so new to this I don't want to miss it up.

I’ve been having great success with saxby. During the mid day it’s a tad whiter but morning and evening a lot bluer. My corals so far have been doing amazing with this

I dunno lol, it was just an option in the app. They’re the regular prime HDs
Ohhh that's why I have 16HDs and a 32HD struggling to find a good schedule for my tanks I have even purchased a par meter tired of waiting for a rental lol but I have diffusers as well for all my Ai lights.

How’re the diffusers working out for you? I don’t have any diffusers on mine and I notice dark areas around the corners of the tank
