I have recently switched from an 8 Bulb 24" Powermodule to a 160W Pacific Sun Black Python LED unit. I want to be careful while I dial this new fixture in and not burn my SPS or give them too little light.

As I understand it my new LED fixture is much more powerful than the ATI. For now, I'm running the LED at 50% of max power, and slowly ramping up to 75% in a few days. Any suggestions for me as I dial this thing in and any indicators of giving my SPS too much/not enough light?

Thanks!

I actually just found this thread:

If anyone has any different advice (as my fixture is not the AI one discussed), please let me know. I'm also unsure how the 2 compare in terms of PAR.
