I need a total of 8 points for the schedule you posted. 7 points excluding 00:00. With only 6 adjustable points, I don’t have enough time points for the midday peak.

Hi actuly you only need 6 point becuse it smart rump up and down .

The light will go up slowly from on point to other and go down slowly from one port to other so it will save some point .
Please check the example
Point 1 00:00 0% not change
Point 2 09:00 1% start point
Point 3 09:30 40%
Point 4 11:30 70%
Point 5 15:00 80%
Point 6 18:30 70%
Point 7 21:00 0%

This is the graph I get if I do that.
Almost there :)
Try to do this you will get the same then adjust the % acording
For example if I chose the max power 80-% and you 100-%

Then point 3 in your program should be 60-% insted of 40%

Point 1 00:00 0% not change
Point 2 09:00 1% start point
Point 3 09:30 40%
Point 4 11:30 70%
Point 5 15:00 80%
Point 6 18:30 70%
Point 7 21:00 0%

Still looks the same I don’t think it can be done without that extra time point. I’m missing the evening 40% due to lack of time points. How the heck did you get 8 time points on your program?

Why the heck does mine look different? :( In other words, how the heck do I get this nice bell-shaped curve in your program?

One of the points is always stuck at 00:00, so we only have 6 points to work with.

This is what I'm using now. It's the WWC program I was running with my Radions.

I'm going to try the posted one

Hi GugsJr, thanks for share with us you program but this program can be dangerous program for many types of sps aquarium. Look like that 5% of light run all the night I would not do this . Also 100% run for long time . Top of sps can be get very bright color but I can see that ch 2 run low -% so this good .

I switched it to 0% from 10:30 pm to 6:30 am forgot to pay the new one.

Now I'm testing out the one you posted.

My tank is 30" tall so I might increase the percentage

This is as close as I could get to the Orphek recommended program. A couple of questions
Why cant you add additional times points on a software update? As 10 would be ideal.
How do I add a customised program, I get no option to save under a new name and I keep having to overwrite my existing one?
