I know that I was under using my lights, I told to cut them way back because of cyano. Now I have GFO, and that would probably have been a way better solution. Everything suffered from lack of light. Now working my tank strength back up.

Well, technically right. That would make some and sometimes all cyano disappear, but not address the nutrient issue as you pointed out and are using gfo to address.

Very nice for accent, but not for growing coral.


Catfish- are your units manually dimmable? If so, what do you have them set to and what corals are you keeping?
Corals do not care about sunrise or sunset...only that they have enough usable light for enough time.

Im running a 7 hour cycle and my corals look happy but not a whole lot of growth. Would y'all suggest a 10 hour cycle. Right now I have no algae in the tank

I have soft corals, lefts, mushrooms and zoas. The taotronics are non-dimmable.

Those are all lower light level corals. If the mushrooms look nice and compact and not stretching for the light, your good to go IMO.
