Reef Breeders 24" Photon V2+
SO I pickup one of these to replace my Hydra AI 32. I have dozens of files for the HD and 100os on line,
I cant seem to find any info on ideal setting for this light and I can not seem to dial it in. IT's creating huge algea blooms nad burning my SPS!!

any one have a resource for a mixed reef with not full on blue but not white settings?

I copied the radion ab+ spectrum at 25% nothing is burning and algae is in check
Thanks for your post. I'm admittedly a little dense on this stuff. Can you by any chance link o the radion and explain what you mean by 25%? I am not sure I understand what people are referring to when they say that or talk about max at 50% (what ever number)

Do you literally mean that if the original radion ab+ for channel one says80% you set the breeder to 20%?

sorry for the stupid q

This is the ab+ I just put 25% of the number into the appropriate color on the v2

I've been running this setting for about 6 months with good growth and coloration for my Zoas and Trumpet.

But I am going to reduce intensity because I have a ton of green hair algae now and I also want to enjoy the blues in the later evening. Going to try this out:

If anyone has tips on these schedules please let us know!

The other think I think might be helpful for people is what size light and how far above the water level do you have your light?
