I use kessils for my tanks and the A360x is super powerful. You can't use your eyes to assess par. You may have too much par or raised it too quickly for the coral.
yeah maybe, I'm running 44% intensity for my max when the acclimation is over. Not sure how that would be as far as PAR readings.

Thank you!

Here's my settings for full brightness:

4%Blue
44%intensity
50% V
20% R
2% G

Hopefully I can interpolate some data to get an idea.

With Kessil 6" off the water at the above settings, the PAR is roughly 150 mid-tank right below the light.

is this with your settings or mine? I wouldn't think 150 is bad for a all LPS and softies tank. Should I change it?
...all depends on what it was getting before the change.

That is my settings based on BRS recomendations of light schedule. If you have the light on too long too short it can impact coral health.

Okay thank you! Yeah I will try to do something similar do you have a picture of your tank?
