Curious if a coral is supposed to get their recommended amount of light (ex zoas at 150) for a certain period of the day or the full day?

for example, having my corals gradually reach their peak (ex 150) then taper down as the day progresses or have the corals at 150 for the day with a ramp up/down in the am/pm?

I ask because my leds lose par when my whites turn off and blues remain.

I dont think this is an emergency.
I always ramp up and down /\ . At the peak you can flatten it out / \ so it gets a bit more bright light, Maybe peak for 1 hour
