I have 3 magnifica. All are doing well.

Do you think that my Kessil A360's at 90% to 100% intensity and color, along with a 150 watt DE 20K bulb, all 18" above the water, would be too much light during the peak 4 hour programmed "high Sun" time period? I would have the Kessil ramping up slowly to that intensity and then ramp down slowly. Halide is on a timer for those 4 hours. Total light time is 10 hours.
The nem's were all acclimated up to my current intensity of 75%.
The mags sit directly under the lights 6" below the water surface.
Thanks for the advice.

I would thing they would be fine, just do everything slow and gradually.

If it is, he's gonna let you know. He'll deflate if it's too much.

I've been trying to get one acclimated to my PowerModule for about 2-3 weeks now. I have it running at 50% and it's just too much for him. Keep having to shade him so my corals can continue getting light. I just stick some cardboard over him on top of my screen top.
