Does anyone have a Nicrew 30 watt led aquarium like the one shown in the link? If so what percentage of white light and blue light do you set yours too for coral? Is there a way to have the white light and blue light on at the same time? How long do you have the lights on for? Wondering what is the best lighting percentage for my green star polyp in my 10 gallon tank. Thanks!

i have the double version (of this on a 35 gallon. the controls are pretty simple.. all white (5 levels), all blue (five levels), mixed (5 levels).. so yes you can have white and blue on at the same time..

gsp will grow under just about anything.. i'd probably start with the mid level mix setting.

Have the 60 watt on a 40b. Pretty new, but if it lasts I can tell it will be a good light.
Been meaning to take some par readings, will get to it soon enough

I’m running the NiCrew 30watt with their controller.
Blues start to ramp up at 5:30am, whites start to ramp up at 10:30am. Whites ramp down at 4:00pm and blues ramp off at 8:00pm.
I run my whites at 70% and my blues at 80%.
No trouble growing softies, LPS and (SOME) SPS but the SPS are slow growers under only 30watts. Tank is an Evo 13.5gal.

It has since been moved to the new 40B, and I’ve put the 30w on the 13.5 So I have 2… they do the job ;)

Beautiful tank! Hoping to get mine looking like that. What is the name of the controller you use?
