I've been trying for months to dial this thing in....might just give up!!

Here is what I'm running


My AP700 about 10 inches off the water. I have the Red Sea Reefer 350 which is 48 x 21 x 20.
I have 2 Kessil A160s at the edges to supplement. I added these because I had to raise the AP700 too high to get full coverage - tank is in the living room and was getting too much light spillage.

AP700 has 1 hour ramp up and 1 hour ramp down and 7 hours at 43%
A160s run for 4 hours ramp up, 4 hours ramp down 4 hours peak at 45%

It took a while for my corals to settle in and start growing, start low because you can burn the corals with this light. I started at 33% and a couple months later I'm up to 43% and I just jumped 3% this week.

I had A360s before I moved to this light and I still burned corals. I have a Seneye Par meter which helps me with general coral placement but what I've learned is that even low light corals can be acclimated as long as you do it properly.
