VHO lights

I have a question regarding changing VHO bulbs. I have one LFS that says I should change the bulbs one at a time changing the other two weeks later saying that it would stress the corals by doing them both at same time. I also have another LFS that says it dont make any difference. Anybody got any experience. I`ve been doing it the first way for the last eight years which might answer my question. I`ve never had a problem but maybe I would not have one the other way either. Thanks guys

It's a good idea to keep doing it the way your doing it. A little less stress is always a good thing.

I run 4 VHO on my reef and I change out 2 at a time with no issues. But doing it your way is fine also..... You know what they say. "If it aint broke then don't try and fix it".
