Anyone have any experience with these lights? I have one lighting my 16gallon. Would really appreciate any advice regarding setup and programming, especially the different light channels.

I run my whites a little higher. It's the only light that produces a white light.
48inch long for my 75 also have t5ho running

Thanks for the quick response!
So if I understand correctly, Blue Purple and Cyan are the most important, and white is toned down?
Sorry, I know these must seem like really noob questions... I just want to make sure I get it all right...

I’m no lightning expert, I just set it to where i liked it and it seems to be working. All corals are growing great. Sps a little slowly but lps and softies showing good growth and color.

I've been looking for some good settings too. Have the same light but not the nano. I've got the 36". Yoir settings look good though. Are you cool whites always set so low though? I'll get and upload mine later when I'm home.

Love comparing settings. Anyone else sharing?

What didn’t you like about it?
Really not much power...
And the whole reset timer upon power off really irked me, even with a power timer to cycle every night at midnight. If i had to turn the lights off during the day, i had to reset the time manually.

It's probably good for something like a 10 gallon or less pico tank... But any bigger and you gotta run it at 100% most of the time. Impossible for sps in the future for me with this light.

Hey, got the same light over my 75 and was wondering how the light settings are doing for ya
They are good have it with four t5 ho in a 90. I just switched to a 90g tank. I love the flexibility. To get the results you want in a 75 you will need a couple of them or couple it with a t5 ho.
 

Is it HARD or EASY for you to keep your corals colorful? (check all that apply)
