What led unit did you get? Pretty hard to make any recommendations with out knowing the unit because all LEDs aren't created equal

I couldn't find specs, if you have them it would help. It appears it has some capability to ramp up different colors. I would set everything to half power and ramp it up over several weeks to be safe. Without specs, that's the best we can do.

I would go with the quick set numbers first. There are 4 channels, do you know which colors are which channels?

Led lighting modes

Okay, thanks.

Channel 2 and 3 are where the action is as far as the corals concerned. I would set those high. The 12k channel should be then used to "whiten" up the intense blue light to your pleasing. The 6500k should be used sparingly. It will "warm" up the colors but can also grow nuisance algae.

Just remember, start slow and ramp up.
