I've had gen2, 3 and now 4 and under every one my acans have morphed from whatever color they were when I bought them to orange/red. I'm always told that's what happens with LEDs, I'm hoping they're wrong. I'm currently using the SPS AB+ schedule at 50-55% intensity on mixed reef... are they missing a certain spectrum with this schedule? Should I increase one or more of the color bars?

Thanks.

My acan colors remained the same since switching from T5 to radion G4's 2 months ago. I'm running AB+ 70%max. So far so good.

What size tanks do you guys have and are you using the wide angle lenses?

I have three gen3 pros over my redsea 525. I run them at 45% on the LPS/Softies program for 6 hours and on the SPS AB+ for 2 hours.

I have a custom cube 32x32x26 running 2x XR30 G4's with the HEI lens. Running AB+ 70% max

Thanks for the responses... I don't know what the deal is with mine.
