I know there's a very similar thread where someone asked thr same question but no one really responded. They're all just roasting eachother. Any help is appreciated thanks

400 to 500 par and from every led one I've seen you will have a lot more green.

I keep mine upper 2/3s and my lights are about 14" off the water. I haven't gotten the color yet, but I'm seeing hints of it. But I recently had someone over who said they keep theirs about 6" or so from their lights.

Most all tenius will thrive under 300+ PAR and the more the better on up to 750, or so.

Just get it to where it grows well and forget about the colors. This one only really colors up like you see online after you photoshop and put it under the blues... so don't think that it is you if it does not look like some that you see on the interwebs. The colors are not a referendum on your skill or ability. One of the best reefers that I know has it under about 600 PAR and it is mostly green with brownish polyps and purple tips.

This sucker will look slightly different depending on the angle that you look at it.

Here's the "back" side view of my piece where it gets slightly shaded.

Here's the side that gets exposed to the light.

Under RB only light, where you see a lot of pics taken with.

I typically don't run my LEDs predominantly blues. I prefer a more crisper look coming from the days of MH so I run my whites at 78 and my blues at 84. The tank does get some blues during moonlight hours but I'm never around to see them (tank is at work).

This piece sits in 480 PAR with moderate flow. Tank is stabilized at 7.7 Alk, 460-475 Ca, and 1380-1440 Mg. Out of the three I only lock in alk and let the other two drift within range.

Tank is heavily fed, dosed with Reef Energy A/B daily (at 4mL for my ~47G DT) and skimmed heavily via a Vertex Omega 150.
