Hi reef2reef! This questions is for all you Ati powermodule users.
What are your led settings? How high do you mount your fixture, what’s the intensity of your leds, how long do you have the leds on for? Can you post some pictures of your tank?
Thanks guys!

I used the default program for both LED and T5, the only change I made was shifting the start/end times. I had them mounted 12" above the water line. Page 6 and on will be pics with the ATI.


Maybe he's referring to the XHO LED strips you can attach to ATI T5 units?
ATI PowerModules are hybrid T5 + LED fixtures. https://www.atinorthamerica.com/lighting/led-powermodule/

I have my blues and royal blues at 100% from 2pm - 12am. With a 1 hour ramp up and down. I don't use the red or white leds. My fixture is hung about 10 inches from water surface. 8 bulb 36" fixture on a 48x24x20 tank

Thank you. This is exactly what I was looking for.

Sorry, forgot about the last question. haha. I don't have much pictures right now. I ran this schedule 5 years ago when I had my sps tank and was working for me. I'll see if I can dig up some those old pictures. I got out in 2016 and now got back in. I started this tank back in Nov. 2019 and I ran a lights out (only had blue leds on for 2 hours when I got home from work) 5 month cycle. I finally added a few tester acros beginning of May and all seems to be doing good. Out of 10 pieces. I lost 1 due to cloudy water from opening the window blinds and sunlight hitting the tank from me starting to work from home. Since, I have left the window blinds closed and water has become clear again.
Here are a few pictures from the beginning. I'll try to get some recent ones this weekend.

That’s an amazing rock structure. My tank is 36x24x20 with a 36 inch 8 bulb powermodule. This is what is looks like now. I recently had a tank crash and just started all over again. That’s why the questions.

dang, sorry to hear about the tank crash. We all go through them. Looks like your back on the right track again. My last tank was a 36x24x20. You won't be disappointed with the powermodule. just stick with one schedule and don't make too many changes. Thats actually why I don't use the white and reds. I kept messing with the percentages when I had them on. One day, I said forget it. I turned them off. lol
I won't take credit for the rock structure. I saw youtuber abe's coral euphoria channel and saw him make these pegs. I'm not good at DIY so I researched and came across the aquaroche's acroporock. I just assembled them. =)
