    Ramping is more for your enjoyment than the corals'. Do whatever time works for you.

    I have my peak for about 4 hours, because i read a study a few years back but dont remember the source.

    Anywho. I've seen different tanks with peaks to be between 4 to 8 hours and the corals do great, they are very adaptive. Some more than others obviously.

    Worst decision to mirror my settings to someone else’s before doing research... melted a lot of my corals

    I wish there was a legit post on this

    These settings did not work for you? Did you use the acclimation mode? I was debating using the BRS settings on my 13.5 gallon, but the wattage and those percentages seemed like they'd be way too much for my little tank.

    I went down to about 1/2 of the BRS number [50-60's in the blues] and then set acclimation mode for 2 weeks starting @ 50%

    I'm hoping that this works okay and keeps my BTA in place [probably not =(]
