Taotronics intensity?

I just purchased the taotronics dimmable led lights and I've gotten them hung up, was wondering what intensity would be the right level? I have a bubble tip in there now that was hiding at first I have it set to about 25% now.

That's where I started at when I switched from a6 bulb t5ho fixture and from there I bumped it up @ 5% every 7-10 days, if any corals looked upset I'd knock it back down and wait another week before trying to turn it up again, this was on a 24" deep tank with the lights @ 10" above the tank lid
