I'm trying to get an idea about what settings everyone is running... Tell us about your settings, what livestock/coral you have, etc..

I'm running two Sol Blue modules hung 12" over a 60g cube. Mix of LPS, SPS and a bubble anemone. I'm still acclimating the livestock to the light.

Schedule is as follows:

Time: 9:00 am | W:05% BL:10% RY:10% | Ramp Duration: 15 mins | Lunary Cycle: Off
Time: 11:00 am | W:10% BL:20% RY:20% | Ramp Duration: 30 mins | Lunary Cycle: Off
Time: 12:00 am | W:20% BL:30% RY:30% | Ramp Duration: 30 mins | Lunary Cycle: Off
Time: 2:00 pm | W:30% BL:35% RY:35% | Ramp Duration: 30 mins | Lunary Cycle: Off
Time: 3:00 pm | W:20% BL:30% RY:30% | Ramp Duration: 30 mins | Lunary Cycle: Off
Time: 5:00 pm | W:10% BL:20% RY:20% | Ramp Duration: 30 mins | Lunary Cycle: Off
Time: 6:00 pm | W:05% BL:10% RY:10% | Ramp Duration: 30 mins | Lunary Cycle: Off
Time: 8:00 pm | W:00% BL:04% RY:04% | Ramp Duration: 30 mins | Lunary Cycle: Off
Time: 10:00 pm | W:00% BL:02% RY:02% | Ramp Duration: 30 mins | Lunary Cycle: On

Hey med, whats the difference with the 40degree optics and 70degree? Did you upgrade yours or is the 70 degree stock?

I upgraded all to 70 degree optics; I am not quite sure what to do with all the 40 degree optics I have left over. I think the original posters schedule is fine for acclimation.

40 degree optics have all of the led's light spread 40 degrees wide. You get more focused light and higher par. The 70 allow for better spread, but it means lower par and less penetration. With how high your lights are mounted off the tank, you should stay stock (stock has 70 degrees at the 4 corners and all of the other LED's are 40).

I can only get my lights 6 inches off the tank, so I needed better light spread and the ability to diffuse my 40's so they didn't roast the everything.
