I agree for acro color more light

I don't want it up too high though. The red planet acro has developed the green around the base and is just stunning. I now have the 3 acros that will keep me content, just need to get the color out of the starburst, it was a beautiful blue. Polyps still are. But like I said, intensity is turned up. Hopefully doesn't upset the Lps.

Well I really like my radions. They have provided results. The penetration through the water is crazy, if I could read the par I would provide the results. I've never used mh, so I can't compare. I've thought about it on a future build...but being honest I just need to buy a home first. But so far, turning up the radions aiming at around 70% hopefully.

Nothing really to report. Trading off my GBTA to my local pal for a 2k pods order from r2g. Never liked that bta, and now my mandarin will continue to be full.
