I’d be careful, easy to bleach even sps at that setting, I’d increase slowly and see how your corals respond, what are your running right now? What do you have for corals?

What are you running right now for settings and what size tank? You could maybe take those settings and modify slightly to tone down the power. I dont have par number but It’ll easily bleach sps if you don’t work into it.

Oh yeah they are. I am getting the par I want 350-100 from top rock to sand bed.

I buy everything used or free being a teacher. Par is the only usable measurement that equalizes different brands so keep that in mind

It is about 120 par at the sandbed without the (2) T5’s. I am going to take reedings now that I have the new Apogee which reads LED’s correctly. I will post levels with and without T5’s when I get this done
