I’m running a pair of XR30’s on the ends and a single XR15 in the center on my 750XXL (all G5s). Seems to be really good coverage and everything is happy.
That would be good

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.

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.
