    Good day,

    I understand this could be a vague question, but I'm looking for some insight of what others do. What schedule/spectrums people use.

    I currently am in fill process of my tank. I have 4 Hydra 26's. Sit 10" off water. 220 gallon Miracles aquarium, with coast to coast external overflow. Tank is planned to be mixed reef.

    Show me some ideas of what I should do. I currently set them up based off BRS video of them matching radion par levels. But I'd like other ideas of people who have walked before me.

    Check out my build thread, you wont be disappointed.

    Here’s what I run. I like the color a lot. And get good colors from my corals. Ramps up from 0730-12 and then it’s max til 7. Fades from 7-9 and then it’s just a smidge if uv,v, and rb for viewing.
