I tend to believe age and health of biodiversity acts as just as effective of a buffer against coral mortality as quality halide light will. That has been my only experience though. You’ve been at this longer than me. I’ve killed an embarrassing number of corals from zoas on up to acropora under metal halides. Xm10k and radiums alike. Corals that grew prolific in the same tank where the only thing that changed was time, to share the adjective. Actually adding some real ocean harvested rock was a big turning point
I didn't have any of my colonies died under LEDs when I was using them here. The zoanthids were growing within it's acceptable speed.
The truth of the matter is that ANY failure could kill corals.
Yes, mturation of the system is your best friend, of course.
