Hey All,

How much light is too much? This light is over a 30 gallon JBJ tank. it is setting 5.5" above the water. I am controlling it with an Apex and have it set at 85% intensity. My birds nest is going nuts, but the monti is browned out. And parts are loosing all color. Any suggestions? Does spectrum affect coloration?

IMO light is way too low have my 350 at 16 inches and run my blues at 80 and whites 40.. went 100% when I first got them and fried a bunch of corals.. I would start off with maybe 15% intensity and color around 15k ,, A lot of light for a little tank

Yeah, I think you should probably turn it down to about 50% intensity and gradually increase from there. These are very powerful lights.
