Need help with maxspect LEDs

I have had my tank for about 4 years. I am running maxspect Mazarin p led lights that are fully programmable. I have always left it on the preset light setting with very little growth from mixed corrals. I noticed in all the stores their lights are always real blue. Played with my lights tonight and the blue light with less white light really make the corals pop. Can set the time on lights and it does a dusk to dawn automatically. Anyway. The question is how do I know what percentages I want the colors during the course of a day. Is there a general guideline somewhere. I think I have been generally running mine too bright. Corals seem a little less color. Thanks in advance.

I have chines leds
I run blues 100% whites 10% It's more of what your corals respond too
I keep basically LPS and some zoa's , Now if you were keeping SPS the lighting would be totally different as they need higher lighting
Fish are like lifesavers
They come in different colors
