With kessils they have what's called kessil logic. They put out the proper spectrum of light to meet the corals needs no matter what you set the colors to. Par is what's gonna affect corals most. So set the tank for the color you want then set the par.

You should get a par meter, either rent or borrow from someone. Your lfs may even have one. Most aim for 80 to 150 par at the sand bed for mixed reefs. Low light corals on bottom to high light corals neer the top

Ok. Thanks. I had read a few threads about being careful of using the violet channel, and some say dont use the red or green at all. You're saying the key is par? I wondered if my incorrectly setting the light”s colors was the reason my hollywood stunner turned from a pale blue color to a deep purple. Do you have any thoughts?
