Either way run no more than 50% for 2 weeks then each week go up 10% but no higher than 80% ever with the exception of UV.

That would be good
What corals are you stocked with mate
Mostly soft and LPS, but I’ve started adding an SPS here and there (chalice). I have a ton of zoas and palythoas (probably 20-25 frags and a few massive colonies), some ricordeas, mushrooms, a few torches, duncans, a fat tentacle, large torch colony and an elegance. I also have about 8 rock flowers, a few feather duster worms and 3 tube anemones. And then about 2 dozen fish in the mix.
