Hope everyone is doing great. I could not handle the fluval stock light and the way it made my corals look, so about 3 days ago I purchased the AI Prime 16 and it is really a phenomenal product. My question for you all is: How do my settings/schedule look for my tank? I was told at the LFS to not go passed 40% on blues, violet, or UV, keep the Red and Greens less than 6%, and keep the cool white at 1/4 of the blues. With that being said, I took his advice and sort of mixed it in with Eddie Putra's schedule on the AI Prime website. Let me know what you guys think, I have the 13.5 Fluval Evo. I would love to hear some suggestions y'all have and also comment if I am doing anything wrong. I know the color of the tank is really based on our own preferences, but I'd like to see the settings that you guys are running on your nano tank and maybe a picture to go with it so I can see if I would prefer it in my tank. Finally, let me know what you guys think about my schedule setup. I keep 2% blues on throughout the night with 5% moonlight, at 10 AM, the moonlight reaches 0% and I add 1% of red and green and the blues increase to 8%. My ramp up goes from 10 AM to 2PM, where the intensity of the UV goes to 25%, the violet reaches to 30%, the blues reach 35%, the green and red both go to 5% and the cool white reaches 10%. Then the UV ramps up to 35% at 4PM, and the blues reach 40%, everything else stays the same. Then from 4PM on, the everything starts gradually decreasing until the UV's, Violet, Green, Red, and Cool White reach 0% at 10PM (the blues stay go back to 8%). From 10 PM to 11PM, the blues gradually decrease back to 2% and then moonlight starts increasing to 5%. Im going to attach a photo of my schedule so it will be easier for you to examine, sorry if I went overboard with the description of it, but please let me know if I am doing anything wrong and any suggestions that you may have please share. Thanks!
Hey guys i just got an 18inch current orbit led light and has a bunch of cool settings sunrise/sunset / night / day/time need help what’s best light quality to run like how much percent white blue green red and what would be a good on and off period just general full setup help if anyone got experaince please
so I got my 20gal (standard petco)long tank coming together. Still waiting for it to finish the cycle. I decided for lighting I would go with aqua illumination hydra 26 hd. And I must say I am thoroughly impressed. I have it on the 18" flexible arm. I have the light centered on the tank. I have it at the highest point. I have read about different heights etc and settings but it all become obscured and blurred with so many opninions for different size tanks that I don't own. So my question is what's a recommended height for the tank I have? Also what are some settings for the height? Because it matters for the settings and height .... As for the what what I want to grow.... zoas, GSP, torch, a Duncan and a few leather. Possibly a hammer. And way later in the future after the tank is solid a birds nest. I will have two clown fish in the tank along with a shrimp and 5 turbo snail. Of course cleanup first then spacing out the time of putting them in. I may add another fish in the future but for now 2 clown are fine thanks for any advice Protein skimmer not here yet but it will be soon
