I've been looking for a thread where everyone posts their tank sizes and what they have their Radions set too, I'm kind of surprised there isn't one. I'm still cycling my tank so I still have time to play around with different setting but I would like to hear from someone with some experience.

I have a few corals in my tank with my CUC. Nothing too demanding yet but this is how I have it setup:

Radon G3 Pro
All Blue ramp to 12k 8am to 9am
12k-20k from 9am-5pm
All blue 100%-0% 6pm-8pm

Pretty simple setup. I have the intensity at 100% all the way through. I have 1 unit over a 93g cube.

Here's mine. They're running at 18k. The schedule isn't anything original. It's the high growth template.

Im using the Radion Gen 1's on Radiant color as well but I did tweak to get a little more whites for a couple of hours a day. I was at 40% and moved up to 45%. Getting ready to move up to 50% but wont go beyond that I think. I did notice my sps looking better then before. I had a tank crash a couple of months ago and the 2 sps i have left that survived are looking better. I also plan to upgrade my Gen 1's to Gen 3 pros in the next month or 2..

I've got the Radion Pros on my 90. I'm running the radiant color schedule and 45%. They come on at 12:30 and the moon light period starts at 9:30-11:30. So far all my SPS are happy. I'm trying to lengthen the hours slightly each week and will increase to 50% as soon as I can contact Ecotech and fix my connection issues.

what are you keeping under it? ive heard nothing but bad news when you keep them at 100% from the start, no acclimation or anything did you do?


Right now I don't have much in there. I have an orange crush acan enchinata, multiple zoas and a scoly. They all came from a 30g with a 150w halide. And they are all doing great. The acan is getting colors I've never seen it have in the past 2 years.

Awesome! Good to know that the leds are proving off to have good growth for corals along with good husbandry

have you noticed good growth with the sps? how long have you had the lights?

Yes, originally I thought I was smarter than Ecotech and did my own setting. It was too intense and I saw some border line bleaching. I called Ecotech and they made the recommendation to the setting I have now and said I could eventually ramp up as high as 65% based on my tank size which I have yet to do.

The tank has been set up for about 12 months. The best growth I have seen in a couple of my Acro's has been about 3-4" in the last 8 months since I made the change. I am considering increasing the intensity to 50% in the coming weeks.

I think intensity settings have a lot to do with tank size as well. I have one g3 pro over a 30x30x24 tank (the maximum tank size). That is why I have it set at 100%

Don't have any coral in my tank yet, but I made a program anyway.
My program starts on 20k and goes up to 10k and then back down to 20k. The intensity is at 60% max. Does this seem like a good program? I'm wondering if this will get coral growing at a good rate. If anyone has opinions please let me know.
