As the thread name states, I am running a a360x over my 29 gallon mostly lps reef tank. There are a couple of soft corals as well like zoanthids, a gorgonia and a nephthea. I’m hoping for the possibility of a bubble tip anemone in the future.

the lights are currently about 15.5 inches from the bottom of the fixture to the water and set at the default day night cycle in the kessil application with the peak points changed to 50% intensity the blue/white color is set to 20 across all points.
purple is set to 100 across all points
Red is set to 20 across all points.

I’m looking for any advice or recommendations from others who might have a similar setup. Pics of success would be nice.

10 to 12hr cycle is good, but I would hold peak longer, 6hrs minimum to about 8hrs max. I run a little red and green during peak hours, but only 5% or 6%. I think you can run them 12% to 15% without issue, but a little of both goes a long way. I prefer color to be between 25% to 50%, but that's just me. For mixed or LPS/softie tank, 25% should be pretty good without being to windex-y. The ramp up/down will give you the blue pop, so at least you'll have the black light period twice a day. Intensity will be based on your corals needs, so just keep an eye on them and you should be okay.
