Timing a light change?

I'm currently running the stock lighting in my BC14 but I have 2 Ecoxotic Panorama Pro Modules on the way. Someone suggested that it's too soon to change my lighting because I added some new corals in the last week and have some more ricordeas on the way. The corals I added were from the LFS and were under LED lighting. I assume the ricordeas will have been under T5 or LED lighting (coral morphologic is where I ordered from). So I don't see why I need to wait to change my lighting but I figured I'd better ask since I don't want to do something stupid! :P So do I need to wait or not?

Corals will adapt.

You should be fine. However, watch your LPS and softies the first week or so and if you notice any color fading, decrease your photo period or dim the LEDs 40 percent until the color comes back. Then increase it 10 percent at a time until you find the best coloration.

Thanks! I figured it was safe and I ordered the dimmer to adjust slowly. Hopefully it will go well (or at least not kill anything!). :lol:
