Hey Melissa, has your anemone improved under the orbit light that you got? I have some concerns of the light is enough for anemones and SPS. I only have a single SPS so far under mine and he is doing really well so far. I also only have a shallow 40g tank so I would think the lighting is enough for me, but not certain iot has enough punch for a taller 50g tank.

Hi Carey, my green bubble tip anemone died. I don't think he was to healthy when I bought it. I now have a Condy anemone for 2 weeks now. He is going really good with the lighting. The only thing I don't like about the light is I'm having a hard time programming it to the hours I want. I all bought a couple frags, an xenia and a flower polyps ( think that is what it is) I had to move them closer to the top.

For an update on my orbit fixture:

i went ahead and started mounting my corals and they are still doing well. The SPS hydnophora is mid tank level and opens very fluffy and pretty, looks to be doing well. I also only have the lights at 60% so I have a ways to go before I am at max light.

All my other corals are loving the lights still, no problems except for a new brain coral I picked up, it is fading in one section and doesnt really open much so not sure what the deal is with that guy, if its the lights or something else

Right now I am using the stock setting, the coral acclimation one which is at 60%. I think, not 100% sure but I think its P3.

I've been meaning to adjust the times but just havent gotten around to it yet. lol

I have been using the stock settings too. The first setting M1. I think it is 100%. I think I'll check out the My setting. The directions to set your own is very vague. I thought I set it correctly and it defaults to the factory setting.
