Lighting for gsp, Kenya tree, and mushrooms

I recently picked up a fluval aquasky led light at petco. It has sunrise, sunset, lightning, eight different color modes and other lighting features. I am just wondering what color mode would be best for growth and color? I also have t5 lights going along side of it.

I don't think you'll be getting much growth out of those LEDs and it only accenting color in the tank.

How many bulbs are in the t5 unit? And what size tank? The corals you listed are all low light so you may still be fine

You'll be fine IMO. You could leave mushrooms out of a tank for a week and they'd still probably live. Same with Kenya tree. All 3 of those are pretty indestructible

Your good to go with those softies. They take very little light.
