My tank has been up and running for about 5 months and currently have 2 clowns, and 1 Bicolor Blenny, Royal Gramma Basslet, and Watchman Goby. No issues with algae aside from some rock browning, I started with live rock and sand, will be adding CUC soon.

Plan is to add soft coral, zoas, and eventually LPS.. what would you recommend for lighting schedule in terms of color and intensity?

when I had those I used the spectral controller on the standard reef schedule that came with it. =)

I used blues in the morning and full white for about 4 hours during the day then blue at night for a total of 12 hours on with a 2 hour ramp up and down.

Kessil lights dont matter about the color if they are tuna blues. They are balanced for reef growth at any color. Intensity is what would matter for par readings.
 

Do you care whether or not you have wave action in your reef tank?
