Has anyone used the NICREW HyperReef Light Controller? I ordered the NICREW 100w for my tank, I noticed when it first came it out NICREW had no control for it. I saw people where using Apex, but I recently saw they now have a controller out, so I figured why not and ordered it. The controller appears allows users to pick 6 change times throughout the day and allows for ramping. I'm very new to aquarium lighting and was wondering if anyone has used this controlled or if anyone has recommendations on good light scheduling. I'd ideally like help with what percentage of blue and white I should be running throughout the day as well ntensity (.I see many people don't run their NICREW had a full 100% intensity). I have a 20 gallons tank.

Thanks

I just received my today, works great can adjust 6 time settings. I have 2 150’s mounted 7” above the water. I also have glass cover on my 70 gallon. The light are definitely powerful and have to be set properly. At 100% I was measuring 1100 par at the top of my tank and almost 600 on the sand bed. I run the whit at 5% and the blue at 65%. At this setting I’m measuring around 400 par at the top and around 200 on the sand bed.
