It's always an issue finding 20" and 30" fixtures so I tend to know who has what. I spend a lot of time price checking and doing research.

You can do that. I don't see why you couldn't

Just start them out low on the sand or rock and then slowly put the corals where they need to be over several days. They will get used to it that way.

can i just run it and start with one light in the fixture and slowly increase to 4 because all my corals hav grown on big rocks that cant be moved thats what i was thinking but i realized i will start with 1 light bulb then 2 the next day, then a whole day just like that, then 3 lights, whole day like that then 4 lights.
tell me what u think of that for idea
