    your tank looks great and i love all the chalices. i would really be careful about those astera starfish in the center of the glass. they have ate some of my zoas colonies down to just a few heads.

    My dims are 48x24x18 I currently run the pros 9am-10pm with a modified radiant template replacing the highest starting peak with 20k running it 6 hours then ramping down, basically omitting the increase in white light. anytime I add a chalice I either run the acclimate setting or place it under the frag rack with shade and slowly move it out. My intensity is at 75% no bleaching.

    Thanks Mike! well no sexy ultimate chaos(need to get some) just the regs but all my Z&Ps seem to do fine around the same level of the chalices or tiny bit higher, but I run the acclimate program with the radions with any new addition of Z&Ps or chalices. With the SPS I just leave them on a frag rack thats low-mid and after awhile raise them to a higher rack .

    thank you I need to have a photo day of how they look now under the pros along with my new additions. I watch them on my zoas and yes I am a believer that they eat zoas but only when the zoas I think are dying/melting/something wrong So when I see them around a frag or colony I dip the zoas and they usually come back better looking. So the starfish are like an early warning system because there is ton in my tank lol I do check my tank 4-5 times a day though lol.

    A quick shot of how the current rockwork/corals look still debating on adding one or two big pieces of real reef rock for sps real estate.

    Thanks!

    Oh, I keep the white leds down and use the acclimation program in ecosmart live and I havent had a problem. There is a par chart I have seen for the radion pros and their k values and par I will ask permission if I may post it up.
