AI hydra52s

Had my 52s for around 2 months now. Corals seem to love them. I like them. Just wondering what intensities others have theirs set at.

I would have reds spike early in the morning to increase the photosynthesis, then ramp down to 10% at lights off. I would have blues slowly ramp up to around 40% across 9-12 hours. I would let the whites spike at 20%. I would slowly have violet ramp up slowly and have a huge peak around 70% for an hour before lights turn off so you'll have the actinic fluorescent pop. The green will be completely around how you like the way it looks. It provides no use for us..
