How high is your fixture off your tank? I am asking because I took my blues up to 60% (slowly) and whites up to 40% (slowly) and I started to get a little bleaching. My canopy is 6' off my tank.

My tank now goes up to 40% blow and 10% white and does well with coloration.

Your growth is great!

The light are mounted 10" off the surface. Your lights are 6 feet off the water, or was that a typo? What optics are you using?
