Does anyone have a light schedule close to the SPS AB+ that radion uses?

Just switched over my lights to 5 kessil a360we's. I was previously using the SPS AB+ schedule on my radions. Does anyone have a lighting schedule similar. This is on an SPS mostly tank. I am running the new Neptune Apex. Thanks

There isnt really a way with the kessils being that you cannot control individual colors. Kessil logic makes it so that no matter what you turn the color up to on the lights, its optimized color blending for coral growth. So with kessils its basically whatever color you think your corals look good under:) I really liked mine around 35 to 40% color.

There is now more color control with the 360X but I honestly think you may be over thinking it. With kessil just turn the color to what looks good and adjust the intensity. With the a360s most people I know run them between 40-60% color. I personally keep it right at 50% color which is essentially all LEDS balanced.

Ok, thanks. Here is my current lighting schedule. It is set to ramp up and back down using the kessil spectral controller. I also run 4 80 watt t5's from 11am to 5pm. I plan on replacing the t5's with two orphek OR2 150's as soon as they are available.

On what size tank? FWIW I found 70% intensity to be the perfect spot for my 40 breeder (36x18x16)

It's a 750xxl, 72x24x24. Corals seem to be responding great to the switch. I've noticed them coloring up more but I also starting dosing Acropower so maybe that has helped too.
 

Do you run TWO return pumps for redundancy and to be safe? (check all that apply)
