maxspect razor and zoanthids

Has anyone had any experiences with the razor over a paly, zoanthid dominate tank? I've grown these corals under most lighting but can't seem to have success under the razor. I have a 75. 2 of the 16k units. I peak at about 70 blue 30 white. Water is in check. Flow is moderate w a gyre. Placement is between mid and lower level. Some of my zoanthids are fine but not growing. Some are just melting away. Any positive experience with light settings out there? Or else I'm switching to t5.

Ok. Have you tried running your lights at lower intensity to see if they improve. I have a kessil a150 and my zoas do great under it

Yea. I've actually slowly reduced it. Still going down with no noticeable improvements. I had them under hydra 26 and they went nuts. May have to switch out lights which sucks with the money I've already invested in maxspect

Just turn down even more. It just sounds like you have a lot more light than needed. Try at 40 and see how they react
