Smile AI SOL Blue - JBJ 28 Gallon Settings Help

Just got my AI SOL today that I will be mounting over my tank tonight. I found this entry schedule on another post somewhere and have scheduled it in to my controller.

Does this starting schedule seem to be to much?

Any advice would be great.

My current stock is just 2 percale clowns and a green torch coral (frag).

I don't have this light but this is the light u will be buying. I hope 1 over my 90 will be good enough for while until can afford 2nd light. From what i read these lights are strong. 30% you think too strong for day 1???

Please post pics. How will you hang?

What lights are you running currently? Leds are very strong and you could bleach corals quickly. I have a Radion for about a month and I am still on 20% max. I would dial it down to,start. Jmo

I currently have the intermediate led hood for jbj 28 gallon.

I dialed it down to 30% peak. Should I go lower?

I have 2 ai sols over my 90g reef, I bought my first coral today and I've set it to 15% at peak, these lights are strong.
I'll be gradually increasing every week or two depending on how the coral does.

These are awesome lights by the way.

Not sure If this helps. I have a BC29 with the same light. At noon it's at 50% on white and slightly higher for the blue and royal blue. Been that way for months now.

What settings did u start with?

What livestock do you have?

Any issues with the light on your tank?

Did you take a look at my plan and have any feed back?
