I know zero about leds so my question Is if that light is stronger than 4 t5s on a biocube, how do I gradually ramp them up so I don't lose any corals? I know zero about leds, just trying to help my mom who was sold this light from a LFS. I know this is an odd one I would appreciate any help.
if the 4t5s r stronger then would that mean I could run both at 100% and be ok?

thanks again

I would start at 20 to 30% on the leds You will fry your corals at 100%.

IMO start at 30% on both channels, using the manual on/off. Raise 5% each week until the desired brightness is achieved. Once your at the level % you want then start the day/night ramp up/down feature.
