Yes, in the main menu click on raster, then what time break down you want.

I have a 60 inch tank that is 20 inches deep with two Stratons right now. I love the Stratons and wouldn’t even think about replacing them but I would like to supplement with shimmer. I’m considering adding a kessil 360x right in between my current fixtures. Do you guys think I will see a health shimmer effect?
I have a 48x30x24 with 1 straton in the middle with 2 A360's on the sides. In my opinion, its perfect!

Are there any sharable Pre-sets for these?
I haven't set mine up yet but I'm curious about this as well.

At some point I'll want to program them to be heavy blue for morning ramp up and evening ramp down with stronger whites during the peak times in the middle of the day

Lps/sps preset fits what you just described.

Someone on Facebook posted this setup. These are Radion lights but what I’m interested is the railing he’s got on the ceiling. I could see something like that making it oodles easier for me to hang my 3 Stratons so they are lined up nicely.

Anyone have any ideas on options I might have for something like this?

That looks similar to a plant hanging aluminum bracket I had way back when.
Can you contact him on FB?
I did. It’s actually a piece of standard baseboard trim! He screwed it to the studs and then attached the wire mounts to it

I have almost this same setup but with a straton, will be adding a second within the month. Let me see if I can find a pic

Hey folks, did any of you had a chance to compare ATI Straton to Philips CoralCare? What are your impressions?
Which one was more eye appealing and seemed to worked better for the given price tag? So another words, which seem to have a better price : value ratio?

Just bought 2 of these, 1 arrived the other waiting for stock.

They are replacing redsea 160s, I chose the mixed reef setting and tested at 65%, they are a lot whiter than the red sea on this setting and some corals don't seem as colorful.

One of my sps frags that looks like it has 3 colors on the redsea just looked white on the stratons.

I do like the spread of the stratons and they physically look much better, and they definitely give more spread.

I'll have a proper play about when the 2nd one arrives, was thinking of getting a 3rd so I have full coverage but that may be overkill, and I'm worried about the RMS mount putting to much weight on the sides of the tank with 3.

How does the spectrum (specifically UV) and spread of the the Radion G6 compare to the Straton and Straton Pro?
Difficult to say as they are not comparison and test from each of this two.I hope she has a better spectrum than the first model, which should not have been great.
I saw her in real as I have friends have it ,the colors and fluorescence seems not bad under it,but about spectrum I can say nothing as we not have data. They seemed to be happy with it,even if the growth seems to be less than the t5, for the friend which had an ati hybrid before.But it is still too early for long term reviews.
When I asked Ati Germany about detailed information about spectrum and the mixing of the colors (as it has no diffuser and I nit believe manufacturer claims without proves or information )they just told me ,you can get the spectrum you want. I found it to be a light answer for a light sold at this Price. The material seems to be good ,the spectrum and diffusion ,we don't know without facts,every time I asked detailed or deranging answer to the head of Ati I got just evasive responses.So we have to believe it without facts and no comparisons.. This give me not enough trust for the moment and even more because some people were not happy with the previous model in Europe,included some coral farmer I know,problably it's why the update came so fast. I found it also clearly overpriced, even if it would be good. Let's wait and see if brs or others will do some serious test ,then we will have facts not just manufacturer claims.

If you like the “American windex” look and you have a lot of fluorescent corals and you like the dayglo look, you want to stick with your Red Sea lights because they are pretty much only blue. RS lights, even with the whites at 100% and the blues pulled down to 50% are still windex blue with a low CRI (colors will come mainly from fluorescence, not from reflection).

If you like a high CRI and a more realistic reef look, then whiter lights like the Straton, T5s, MH, are for you.

Depends on preference, they all grow coral.
