The guy i bought the led light from has three of these fixtures on his 300 gallon tank and is able to keep sps and lps corals so this light is pretty strong

If the lights are dimmable you can just increase the intensity a little every few days until u get to full power after a couple weeks or raise your lights high and lower them bit by bit over the course of a couple weeks.

Few ways of doing it. Some more difficult depending on light features and setup.
