So beautifull. Running two lights? And enough light for acans, duncans etc. on the bottom?
Thank you! That’s correct two lights stock lights! My Duncan went from 2 to 7 heads in about 6 months! I believe my light schedule and settings are on here... but here they are if not!

This is the settings for both lights and I’ve had great success!
Hope this helps!

Looks perfect. And no heat issues with these settings? I might crank up the Whites a bit for my SPS!

personally i don't have heat issues but i removed the whole back piece that covers the chambers and i leave the feeding lid open... i get goo air circulation in the room as well and windows are always open to ensure the skimmer pulls in fresh air! during the summer i would just prop the hood in the front like half an inch or so... my heater is set at exactly 79 and my current temp is exactly that. i keep the heater in the center chamber so newly heated water gets dispersed into the tank and doesn't create a still hot spot and shut off. Good Luck!!

Sounds good. I think i will take of the back part as well. and eventually install a fan if necessary. Im at 79 now as well, so interested in how much an extra will implicate. But i am thinking of bumping down the whites with to lights, so hope that will helk lower the temperature as well :)
