    AI Hydra 26 HD... settings to start with?

    Start out low and slowly work your way up in like 5% increments a week depending how the coral reacts to it you gotta really pay attention to them cause they will let you know if they're happy or not.

    Mp10 dry side falling off

    I adjusted the intervals to 10 second intervals and it stopped falling off. But when it's set to 2 second intervals that's when it falls off. That just doesn't seem right.

    Mp10 dry side falling off

    Mp10 dry side falling off

    All I've done was adjust the duration on my pulse mode and all of the sudden it started falling off. I have 3/8 inch glass I believe so I don't think it needs the spacer. Does anyone know why this could be happening?

    Ai hydras not working properly

    We'll you see i did that and the light stayed on and wouldn't shut off no matter what I did. I got help and was able to get it working. We had to reset the awm module and the lights for some reason they were in manual mode and wouldn't link with the awm module.
