When you say "it" will kill my coral, you should be more specific. I gave you two pieces of advice. If your referring to vodka dosing, heres two links to support it.

If you were referring to 6 hours a day of lighting for your coral, I guess I should of asked how many bulbs, length/output your running. If you have to run them for 12 hours a day, your lighting is insufficient as it is. Any hardcore reefer will tell you 12 hours of light is over the top. 8 hours is average. I sucessfully kept a reef (sps
/inverts/softies) with a 6 hour light cycle. I was also using leds with a par value of 180. I would like to help you, but not for your sake and your childish response, but for your reefs sake. So to assess the situation, you might want to answer these questions as they will help determine a solution.
How many bulbs are you using? What is the bulb wattage? Do they have individual reflectors? What color spectrum is each of the bulbs? How old are they? What are your water parameters? Do you run a refugium? Where are you getting your water from (are you using a rodi
unit/tap water/natural sea water)? How many fish do you have? How often do you feed? How often do you do water changes? What precentage do you do water changes?
