I'm hoping to get some good advice from the group. I have a 180g mixed reef tank. My parameters are where they should be and are very stable. I'm a HUGE Zoa fan, but for the life of me, I can't keep them thriving! I've determined that my lighting is the culprit (3 Radion XR30 Pro's). I've fried so many colonies and it's killing me (and them!). Can anyone who has a similar set-up share their lighting program so I can stop frying my Zoas? I'd be very grateful. I control the lights via apex (not ESL), and Ecotech's Coral Labs are of no benefit! Help!
I don't remember where I got it from. I'm sure that a google search would bring it up. I replaced it when I added the reeflink to my system and started using a simple bell curve to the lighting on the system. I run them at about 75% intensity. It is basically the same thing that John's graph was, but his ramped up in more of a spike rather than a casual increase.
What do you have going on now? Everything might be fine, it just sounds like the intensity the lights are running at compared to the previous.
