As you may know from my recent tank update, I now have 2 ecotech Radion XR15w Pros on my tank. I have had a number of requests for my lighting schedule so figured why not make a new post about it!
It can be a daunting task to know what to set your light at… to low and you are not getting the benefits.. to high and you risk bleaching your corals.
On my shallow reef (13″ deep) I set the radion to a max % of 45%. I also set a 4 week acclimation period which also starts at 50% (of my overall 45% intensity) this will ease corals into the new light. I had a 120w led fixutre over the tank previously so this likely isnt required in my case, however after spending a small fortune in corals i would rather be safe than sorry.
