Yes, I am really struggeling with how to set them up still...Anyone else having trouble going above 60% with theirs? I've been acclimating my corals for more than a month now and I can tell above 60% lots of my LPS will retract due to light, even those at the bottom.
Haven’t had any issues with them at all. They’ve worked exactly exactly how they are supposed to ramping up and down, keeping settings and all that.Do they smoothly ramp up and down and synchronized as if they were a single light?
Do the lights always keep your settings?
That's one of the "issues" if you wish, to me adding an extra channel would be cool but we have different opions here.If you’re looking for a bunch of adjustability these aren’t the lights for you. You’d be better off with Hydras or Radion Pros. If you’re looking for a good light that works well, with a ton of shimmer, that you don’t have to think a bunch about and watch constant “How to master your lighting” videos while you constantly think about what mix of blue/violet/red/green/cyan/fluorescent orange/etc you should use then these lights are perfect. Red Sea did the work to find a mix with the blues that work to grow corals. All that you need to do is pick the amount of white light that looks good to your eye and forget about it. That’s why I switched to them, I was tired of messing with my Hydras.
Would you mind sharing a screenshot of your schedule with me? I'm getting the SPS bug and having trouble getting the growth I want. I have a couple higher end pieces I really want to grow out.I do agree with some of the posters above, you need to mount the power supply on some kind of metal bracket behind the tank. I ended up using zip ties to keep it away from other things and keep the clutter down.
The color in my opinion is a bit on the blue side if you go on presets. I have a custom light schedule and I have been very happy with the results. The shimmer is great for such a small compact package. The connectivity and disconnect issues have been resolved in the most recent update.
I have been having great growth on my LPS and SPS.
The reef 90 has a fish or coral acclimation mode that you can customize, cloudy day generator and a lunar cycle.
What intensity(ies) are your running on this schedule?I have 4 on my 180g mixed reef. Had some overheating issues, boxes can get hot. I have had the disconnect issues as well, annoying messages dinging my phone while I am at work, but as far as the corals - they seem to love it. I run the 15K settings 4 days a week, and I run the 20K, and 23K settings on the other 3 days to give a different look. I have found them to be a cost efficient alternative to other setups. I run Hydras on my other 165g reef with a T5 hybrid setup. I love both setups, but as far as cost the ReefLeds win the race.
