Hello! I have a brown algae problem and I’m wondering what you guys have your Reef Breeder lights set at?
I'm running ReefBreeders on both of my tanks. On my new 120g, I'm not running the red or green channels at all. For my application, I'm running 60% on the remaining channels, with white at 9%. Basically it's an AB+ schedule.
Also running a Royal Ice and HO UV LumenBars.

I forgot to mention that these numbers are based on the sizing of my tank (120g), and getting PAR readings. If your tank size/water quality/surface movement/etc. is different, you will need to adjust the numbers that anyone gives you.
Rent/buy/borrow a PAR meter so you know what you're actually getting.
 

What percentage of blue versus white lighting do you think makes the best coral growth combo?
