View Full Version : Intensity over shallow tank

02/07/2016, 08:01 AM
I've got a value fixture mounted about 10" over a 12" deep tank. I'm a little worried about nuking my corals (sps in the middle lps on the sides). Any recommendations on intensity? I appreciate the help.

I would recommend starting out with about 25% power, and add about 5-10% a week to acclimate the corals to the light. Keep the power lower if you have 90 degree optics.
