For the higher end of all these levels you would do this by pressing the "w" button, then white down arrow 3 times, then red arrow up 7 times, then green arrow up 6 times, and blue arrow up 3 times. After hitting the "w" button DO NOT hit any of the other max color buttons. Press on one of the "M" buttons to save the progeam. This is similar to how I run the 24/7 in my high tech 29 gallon, in a taller 55 gallon you should be fine with the %s I gave you.

Wrangler, how long have you had the 24/7? Any problems with it? I'm thinking about upgrading to this because I like the idea of the 24 hour progression and seeing the tank with different coloring throughout the day. My plants are not very demanding. Mostly Java fern, Java Moss, and 1 Amazon sword.

Get it, Clyde! The non-peak colors are gorgeous. Bluish in the am hours and reddish in the pm hours. Even while the lighting is subdued, you can still see the fish/plants pretty well. The fish seem more active with less light, especially the CPDs; I've seen them swim in the upper levels. I am trying to feed them during these times.
I still have the planted+ and I am running that on the tank as well.
