Just wanted to start a thread for fellow A360X owners to post and share their lighting schedules.

Here’s mine.

9:00am Clr=10, Int=30, Vi=10 R=5, G=5

12:00pm Clr=30, Int=70, Vi=70 R=15, G=15

2:30pm Clr=50, Int=80, Vi=80 R=15, G=15

5:00pm Clr=30, Int=70, Vi=70 R=15, G=15

Awesome info to share. Did you run 360W's prior to the 360X's? Hoping for some feedback or comparisons maybe. I always liked the simplicity of the kessil controller but now with added control of the violet, red and greens this seems to be on another level. Hope I'm not derailing lol.

Sorry, no feedback here, I ran T5's before.

I will say, the Tuna Blue spectrum, by itself, isn't all that appealing to my eyes. However, with the added violet channel, it has the most beautiful color I have ever seen from any LED fixture.

And no, you are not derailing. :) This is a thread about A360X spectrum and all.

Seeing the par numbers from Rico and the par numbers from @Dana Riddle, I'm not afraid of burning the corals. Seems like the right amount of par for a typical mixed reef.

Intensity question:
If you start at 0 int and 1 violet does it start out really dim? Or with 0 int and color at 1?
Have you played around with that?
Thanks
Int only controls the intensity of the Tuna Blue LEDs. Violet, Red and Green are controlled independently of the Tuna Blue LEDs. So yes, Int can be set to 0 while Violet is set to 1 and it's VERY dim.

From the radions that I have seen in person, compared to the A360Xs, they are very similar in color, but the shimmer with the kessils is so much better. The colors with the A360Xs also do not separate in the shadows like they do with radions. The A360Xs are much more like old school MH bulbs.

If you talk to Kessil about PAR, they don't seem like they give it much priority compared to their "logic" and what works for growing stuff.
