Hi guys,
what’s a good bulb combo for a 8 bulb 80 watt ATI fixture with reef brute XHO? Since the XHO will be putting out a lot of blues i want a balanced look. TIA
such a tough question to answer as what is too blue for you is just right for me. i used 4 blue plus, 3 actinic and a purple plus with the xho.
i personally like a pure actinic start and finish to every day so it worked for me.
adding a coral plus significantly brightens the tank up but its going to take some trial and error to find the right mix.

What percentage of blue versus white lighting do you think makes the best coral growth combo?
