Just curious to what everyone is running on smaller tanks with their prime16HD ive been seeing full blown settings to lower and I’m currently on the lower aspect and not wanting to fry my coral.

Here’s what I run my lights at. They are over a nuvo20 I have one set to a lower setting for my lps dominated side and one is higher for the sps ledge I have.

See my set is no where near that high I just have mainly soft coral and euphillias so I like the deeper dark blue to where it makes my coral POP I have a 13.5 evo and only running one prime 16HD. You think I’d be okay at Max? And not burn/fry my coral ???

If only softies and euphyllia you probably wouldn’t want max power. You can always up the blues and uv’s and lower white to help give your corals more pop.
Yeah I don’t run white really like 2% right. Now if I remember. But blues I would be okay with ramping up more ? I think I’m around 80% or less on all blues
