Start the lights out at like 40% and increase them 5% a week until you get to where you want them. That way your corals wont bleach. Any new coral? or did you empty the bank for those lights!

Nice set up! I like the blue contrast to its green skin. My Cali Tort is like that. Looking good!

If you aren't noticing any bleaching then I'm sure they are acclimated to them. If there's no bleaching or if things are "stretching" toward the light, then maybe rise the light intensity 5% more.

Yea. I would add 5% to both every week or 2 until you have the intensity you are looking for.
