I read somewhere, cant remember where, that coral reaches a photo-inhibition period, where they have absorbed all their daily needs of light, after a span of 4-6 hours. So doing it this way, the coral has a 6 hour period of light and a 6 hour period of rest, twice a day. Effectively doubling the growth capacity...in theory. But seriously so far- puffiest, happiest, most PE showing SPS i've ever had in my 10 years of reefing.

Interesting. So you’re doing 6hrs of bright “white” in the am, 6hr rest, and then 6 hrs of blues, 6 hr rest each day. Definitely interested to see how things progress for you.

Yup! thats correct. The morning "Bright White" is all levels at 100% so they are actually getting full spectrum, UV, Violet, RB, Blue, Red, Green, White. Then at night they are getting 100% UV, Violet, RB, Blue. So far so good!

Looks like you need more zoas though!!!
Couldn't agree more!!! My LFS had a big blowout sale a few weeks back and I was on a mission to get some zoas and they didnt have anything worthwhile. lots of aptasia or GHA on the plugs-blah. Definitely in need of some!!

I just bought the same tank too. The tank is home, but waiting on the stand. What return pump are you using?

I ended up going with the sicce 5.0, been working well, not controllable, but works weell none the less
There’s nothing wrong with an AC pump. I still have the stock pumps on my jbj 45, primary flow comes from mp10’s anyway

exactly my primary flow comes from 2 reef breeders R-PM wave makers. nice wide flow like a mp40, but 1/4 the price!;)

Looking good. I'm also excited to start dosing more regularly. Santa brought me a Neptune Trident that I'll connect with the DOS that has been sitting in the basement because I haven't had the time to do the testing as regularly as I should before I start auto dosing. Hopefully the Trident will help with this.
