hello I have a 20g sps lps tank and I am looking for the most suitable lighting program and light height. The dimensions of my tank are 60x50x35 height 14" inches (35cm) I am waiting for your help for the most suitable program and density. I am sharing the image of the tank for an idea

To give you some perspective, I run 2 XR15 pros on my tank which is 22 inches deep and SPS with LPS. I use the 8 inch RMS standard mounts. I run the AB plus program at 68% intensity.

I would say the XR15 is a powerful light for a small tank and you probably want to start off somewhere around 40% overall intensity via the schedule adjustment. Guage your corals response and slowly increase intensity as needed.

Have you ever had problems as a result of "over filtering" your tank?
