Led Cause issues?

Just purchased my first led's so I can start getting coral. Picked up the new hydra 26 HD. 2 of them for my 75gallon. So my issue is that since I got these my fish started looking rough. Does anyone know if there are any issues when introducing led lights? Big jump from my 4 foot fluorescent that's been on it for 2 years. Any help would be great.

I also run LED'S with no issues what's your water quality like with regards to

Nitrates
Ammonia
Nitrite
PH
Temp

That's where I would look as well as possible diet or contamination / disease possibly.

What fish do you have and do you run carbon and when you say rough how are they looking a picture of the fish you say look ill will also help

Agreed, we need a picture and more information.

I recently changed from VHO`s that I had for 15+ yrs and went with LED`s. They are brighter then flourecent bulbs and give a different look to corals and fish.

Could be the stocking level or aggression

3 tangs , fox face , coral beauty , 2 Athena's , 2 clowns , and a chromis
in a 75g tank my first response way overstocked ,
I doubt the light has anything to do with why your fish look beat up,
I would have to agree with CG on this more like aggression 3 tangs in 75g is a fighting match looking to happen I wouldn't have 3 tangs in my 90g for this very same reason , I would consider re-homing the tangs or upgrading to a bigger tank , my #1 concern would be the stock in your tank and lightening the load some before even thinking of coral
