Hi there! Thank you for taking the time to help me with this! I currently have two frag tanks and they are both equipped with AI primes. I want to know where your Cool white, Blue, Royal Bule, Green, UV, Violet, Deep Red and moon light are on for maximum growth. Please keep in mind I have LPS and softies :) I understand that everyone is different, but I just want to play with the numbers and see which one i like the best :)
Right now I have mine at
- cool white 0
- blue 14
- royal blue 100
- green 0
- UV 100
- violet 0
- deep red 0
- moonlight 93
the stores have a deeper darker blue than what I have right now... and thats what im trying to go for if they are going to maximum coral growth!

Forgot a few pics . No filters on those and my lights are ramping up. I have my moon lights come on for a very short time after lights out so I can feed my chalice

My tank is all LPS and softies but its 24" deep and lights are about 8" above water. The depth of your frag tank is gonna play a big role as far as par goes with these lights.

I'm running the BRS lighting suggestions but with slight modifications as I found it too blue. The overall goal is 10 hours of "blue" and 4 hours of "white", and I ramp around an hour on each side. Highly recommend a PAR meter.

Do you have a iPad or similar type screen mounted somewhere near your tank for control or display?
