We need to know the size of your tank.

According to the PAR numbers in the picture supplied, it seems pretty potent. I would think you could keep whatever you want. Pretty expensive though!

Absolutely. Even if your tank was quite a but deeper it would be plenty. That fixture is pretty epic looking! I wouldn't set it past 20% at first.

You're welcome! If you don't already know about LED coral light acclimation read up on it. You'll want to start off with the fixture set low and slowly bring the light levels up to where it'll need to be (depending on the corals you own). After that, new corals will often be placed at or near the bottom until they adjust. That mostly applies to corals that weren't grown under bright LEDs before you purchased them.

Do you have a build thread?

I've been reading up on it and set the max intensity to only reach 45% at midday I'm going to be watching them though to see if that is too much no build thread though the lights are the biggest upgrade next to my sump refugium that i built 2weeks ago out of a 20 gallon long everything is running well aside from an ich out break now all my fish are in the quarantine scopas, copperband, and porcupine puffer hopefully have them back in the tank by next week
