I like your canopy design! Don’t see too many corner tanks with custom canopies. What light are you running?
I have the big black boxes, led's just upgraded to those, I need to set them up to be able to use my cellphone yo control them, little bit tricky.... I love my tank

It looks great! Which black box did you go with? I forget. Someone here probably has the same light. I have an SB Reef Lights similar style to a MarsAqua or Viparspectra. The App for mine is touchy and not perfect, but over time I have figured it out better.

The way I approached mine was set the blue channel for growth, then adjust the white level just enough so it looks “not too blue.” The blues I started low like 20%, and slowly over weeks have brought them up to 35%, but my tank is pretty small and young.

Thanks Engineer, I had to think about something so I ask one of my friends whom I get some of the corals to set up the lights as I did not want to hang them from the ceiling.

I'm running the black boxes 165W intelligent aquarium with Wi-Fi control, dimmer function, timer function, it's tricky to set it up as I'm trying to use the application for smart controller for light to connect to my phone but disconnect a lot or can not make connection and had to keep trying until im able to connect, seems that the application crash a lot on it's own

Dammm i remember when my tank looks amazing like that, more corals ☹, now im stressing out after look at my pics.
Do not feel bad. No stress allowed! It just leads to panic and poor decisions. You can recover. All of us have ups and downs. It is part of reef keeping and patience is the way forward.
