Then at 8:00pm no whites and just a hint of blue and royal blue for moonlight effect then at 3:00am total darkness. Until 7:00am when it starts over again.
Everything is on a very slow ramp schedule and you can hardly see the change. I spent over an hour with an AI Tech to get it just the way I wanted it for my tank. The tech was very helpful and I think we nailed it. We did do a acclimation period which we extended just to give the fish and coral time to adjust. Now when adding coral I just go back to the acclimation program and repeat.
Hope this helps a little
Awesome light btw... I love mine!
Thanks that helps a lot I have the ai sol blues 2- I wasn't sure if whites need to be higher than the blues, I prefer the blue colour so that's good.
Also wasn't sure about the acclimation period and whether I'd have to go back to it everytime I add a fish or coral so that clears that up for me.
I might see if i can speak to an ai tech, every little helps i guess.
Do you use the lightning effect at all? I'm not too sure whether I'm gonna use it or not.
And I agree, I love these lights, so glad I put the extra money towards them. Thanks for the reply.
