    I just started up my first nano tank (20 Long). It has finished cycling and I’ve just bought a Prime HD.

    My question is what are the most ideal settings to run the light at? Not a huge fan of the all blues visually. I want to hear some of your guys’ suggestions for both visuals and coral growth. I would love to see a few pictures of your systems as well if you’d like to share.

    Any advice or input would help. Thanks guys!

    Thanks, I will definitely look into those! Since I’ve got a longer tank I was considering mounting it a bit higher to try and get some spread. Especially only being 12in deep.

    I would definitely go with two primes. I will post some pictures when I get the chance. Added a few corals. They are definitely adjusting nicely but the light doesn’t really cover the whole tank unfortunately. I’ll be looking to add another shortly.

    I’ve been running ramp 12-2 then down 10-12. My Monti has been loving it. My anemone has been opening up too great though so I may adjust it. Or should I let him just do his thing?

    Go to the link in the post just before yours and select a profile, import that. It has a starting schedule you can edit.
