I started off with 3 Kessil A360X and added 2 Radion XR15 G6 and am trying to create a schedule where the two lights ramp up and down together at the same spectrum. Timing is a breeze, but there are so many more adjustments you can make on the Radions and the two dont really translate easily.Has anyone firgured out how to do this?

The easiest way is to go with all Kessils or Radions... :beaming-face-with-smiling-eyes:
Do you have an image of your current Kessil and Radion schedules for comparison?

Not including the "add on" Kessil colors this is the basic blue to less blue spectrum.
You will need to match the radions to it.

Btw " which" g6?
460, 430, 395 plus some cool white.(approx) Kessil.
Leave the red,green, violet/indigo channels off for the moment

HAHA, Yeah I know. BUT I wanted to see which I would like better (I had to add two for more par) so I decided to try the Radions. Glad I did, I like them MUCH better. I'm just using the standard AB+ for the Radions and Tuna Blue for the Kessils. I can screen capture and send if needed.

G6 BLUE​


For those who love Blue – we present G6 Blue! Bluer in every way and then some. Adjustments to the diode mix offer new depths of color intensity. With so much Blue, G6 now creates the opportunity to tune the Blue look between actinic and crisp. The addition of 395nm to the LED cluster pushes fluorescence in fish and corals to the next level.


LEDs
4 Cool White
16 Royal Blue
16 Blue
1 Red
2 395nm
1 405nm
2 415nm
6 430nm
2 Warm White

G6 PRO

The Radion Pro is responsible for lighting public aquariums, aquaculture facilities and coral spawning laboratories worldwide. Despite this, our most important user is the discerning home aquarist. Unbeatable in balanced output the G6 PRO carries the tradition further with extra capability in the blue and UV spectrum and mind-blowing additional spread!


LEDs
8 Cool White

2 Red
3 Green
2 395nm

Pro or blue? Probably won't matter but to cover everything..

For fun.. The ratio of rb,b,violet is key to attempting to match the kessil.
Radion and Kessil use different peaks for their diodes so it's a bit difficult.
Good thing the Kessil is really simple..
385 430-ish (435) 460 and cool white.AFAICT no "regular blue"
"Blue" uses 395, 430-ish, 450, 475(?)
For color is cool white.. Don't know how well they match each other though.

475 to hopefully shift the tone of the 450 closer to 460..
Down and dirty guess..Rest is up to your eyeballs.
This should help to explain the "why".. You may need to lower the 450 (Radion rb) to raise the 470.. well you will have to.
% cool white will depend on where you set the "color" channel on the Kessil.
Not sure why the G6 chart doesn't quite show the 395

Have fun..
Pro is only slightly different (rb/b ratio) since all your ancillary colors will be off, except cool white (which will probably need dimming).
