LED acclimation & questions

I just installed a pair of Taotronic 120 Watt dimmable LED's - TT-AL09. I currently have a couple of corals that were growing nicely under T5's but wanted some more flexibility - currently have some zoa's, mushrooms, xenias, frogspawn. I understand it is best to slowly ramp up the intensity of the white lights.

Any suggestions in ~% intensity and how long at each level?

Also curious on the blues. Do they have to be ramped up as well? If not, is it OK to have these on 24/7 or should they also only be on for a timed period as well?

Tank is 60 gallons -
48”L X 13”W X 24”H
