Im really looking for an answer here guys. My problem is I dont know how to properly adjust my leds I have 3 dimmable bridglux led
fixtures with white blue and lunar leds. They are dimmable but im trying to understand the correct way to adjust them. I have a few corals softies mostly. I want some lps
, zoos and maybe a few sps
. I guess this can be hard bc the different lighting requirments needed by the corals. Im looking for a mixed reef tank. I did have coral to I guess test my abilities the lfs
said it was an easier coral to keep. I kept it for about 2 months and it died. It was hydnophora frag. For awhile it looked great, and for some reason I had an algae outbreak i dont know if that killed it or I was being premature about getting one. Mostly out of the sps
I want a type of monti bc I love they way the plate over eachother on rock. Other than that I more into lps
. With the hydnophora dieing rather quickly it has gotten my confidence down in my lights. Right now they are turned all the way down bc when it was about 1/3 on they started to bleach some of my softies and they are in the sand bed. Ill prolly be getting rid of these bc the monti needs intense lighting. If you all could direct me in the way of what my corals need. I know you dont know and I dont know what corals ill being getting besides a monti. So how do I determine where the coral needs to be? Can you base this off of observing the health of corals? Of so how? Fpr example, to much will bleach the coral, not enough could lose color. Im not for sure if these observations are correct it was just an example of what im looking for.
