    Excellent. Depended on what corals you're keeping you'll want to do a 10 hour cycle with a 2 hour ramp up to your peak intensity and 3 hour ramp down to turn off at the end of the day. This'll give you a 5 hour peak intensity. Your peak intensity will be determined on what corals your keeping, and how far off the waters surface you have the light.

    Thinking of keeping lots of soft corals and one monti cap, I’m gonna have a few mushrooms at the bottom and an anemone for my Clownfish to host.
