Hey all,

Would Really appreciate some help. I have the redsea max nano tank and the 50W light that comes with it. Tank is an 18" cube. I currently have it set to 70% blue 0% white. It's a very mixed tank without acros but has digitatas, stylos, birdnest, montis, etc. on top and zoas, torch/hammers, scolys towards the bottom of the tank. Every time I get chalices or gonis even putting them low in the tank they seem to bleach but everything else is okay and the SPS is thriving. Should I lower the intensity of the blues and does it matter I have no whites on? Should mention another issue is my nitrates are always super low but just added more fish
