    I have 4 Hydra 26 HD's and I'm looking to see if anyone knows which colors affect certain colors of a coral and if raising or lowering that color enhances or reduces the coral color.

    I would like to get the most color "Pop" as I can. Thanks for any help.

    If you haven’t already read it, read this and emulate it. Yes I know. Different lights. But the hydra diode layouts are nearly identical to the radions. They just mainly differ in software platform and optics. Otherwise spectrum and power are nearly identical between the two. You can apply these settings directly to your own lights. It’s a tried and true led tuning method that will maximize your growth and color. Just don’t mess with your lights beyond this. Leave them alone and focus on perfect water quality, nutrients, and flow.
