Following all the advice I have received here (best you can afford, dimmable, avoid the fancy bells and whistles in favour of better wattage per chip), my new LED
lights are en route.
Understandably, I am anxious to get them set up once I receive them, so here are my questions...
In order not to shock my corals in the transition from T5s to LEDs, how would you recommend I ramp up the lighting?
I am inclined to think the there is more light (165w) than my tank (36 gal
bowfront, 20" depth) requires, how do I know that I have found the "sweet spot" and stop increasing to avoid burning anything in my tank?
Any other suggestions you think I have missed out?
