I did just get my ato in sync so the salinity is a little low but it's still above 1.020 it will be adjusted over the next week so I don't shock anything. It was steadily at 1.026. I didn't wanna turn the lights up so much because I didn't want to burn my corals. When they white it means not enough light and when they brown it means too much right?

I've backed my 2 units down to 50% over my 55. 1 units not enough to cover the tank but with the 2 I was bleaching things out when they were turned up. Having trouble finding just the right intensity for these to really be right for everything in the tank. Wish I could find a par meter to really know what I'm blasting into my tank...

it's the other way around, if the parameters are good, that is.

Question, when nems bleach out though, it's due to a lack of light thought, correct?

Possibly. It's the zooxanthellae leaving the host for one reason or another. In many cases it's lighting or lack thereof.

Just got my new 40g running and loving the maxspect razor 120w. Ran about 400$ but has a built in controller and comes with a bracket mount and a hanging mount.

I backed my white to 50 and up to 100 on blue. And my corals are thriving in color and size! I know I said it before. But man I'm loving this setting! I'm going to check par levels tonight. I never seen so many polyps on my one leather. And it looks like me devils hand leather is opening up more now too. I'd post a pic. But my phone only pics up the blue
