Those of you that use cloud cover simulations. Can u send over your settings since I don't know how to do it. I don't want moon settings or lighting. But thinking clouds might be cool to give some breaks in lights at times. I just don't know what settings are best and % of coverage...

For max darkening. If I set it to 70%. Does it lower it by 70 so if I had 100% intensity it will lower it max to 30% ? Or does that mean it will only go down to 70%?


Also is there a way it only cloud covers a few times a day. I feel like it's constantly changing. Never stays full bright for any time of I watch my color channels

This is why I tried it and turned it off. The clouds were way too often. Took away from my enjoyment of the tank.

Ya it's like back to back. I thought maybe it would give the coral a break once or twice a day.

What settings do you have for duration and pause?

Cheers, Tony
