Came home my frogspawn was pretty closed up..

Came home my frogspawn was pretty closed up.. Turned on my white lights and slowly was opening very little....

Found these brown spots on them don't know what they are..

Parameters are all normal

Only Thing that has changed Is that I got a strip of magenta ecoexotic panorama pro and I can them 2 pm to 11 pm in addition to my 4 bulb t4 lights

Any ideas?

IDK but I have to say from experience.... Led's are under estimated IMO.. What is your light schedule? Blues and whites? And I would start slow with any led [in future] (I made the same mistake) I would start out running it only 2hrs in {high noon time} or whatever it would be at your peak.. And increase the led's by 1hr per week untill your where you want to be.. And you might find that little led has alot of punch and could even take over for T5's...

Or test with PAR or PUR meter to see the difference.. [I dont have one, I really need one tho]


And hopefully more experienced reefers will jump in soon.

I researched it and if things don't clear up. You could be the other half to my experiment.. AKA tape your "mag leds" off

I have been having trouble keeping corals from bleaching. I have a DIY Bridgelux 40 [3w] led kit {16} 10,000k {4}6500k {2}red {2}UV. {16}Royal Blue
Over a 54g corner cylinder. I recently droped the dimmer to 25% from 50% on both blues and whites.. I run royal blues 12hr's and whites 4-6hrs.. And then taped the UV leds off. Although they're not "bright" check out the wavelength Epileds LED 3W violet(UV).
It doesn't seem to make any difference.. I a week if things aren't improved I will tape the reds off and untape the UV's Wave length -> Epileds LED 3W red

Frogspawn is good and liking the new light all I did is turn on my led magenta/blue on one hour before my whites them off when whites come on then when whites come off they turn on again for an hour

Everything is ok slowly increasing duration time
