    Does anyone have a good lighting setting and schedule for the newer AI prime 16 HD?

    I have several softies and and Zoanthids. All Zoanthids have closed up. I have reduced both the schedule and the intensities of all channels... to no avail.

    Could you relay your schedule and reach channel percentages? Thanks

    Since every tank is different and everyone has their own preferences for how the light should look, it is not possible to give you exact setting for what your lights should be set at.

    If this were my tank I'd adjust most of the LEDs to about 75% max, with the red and green LEDs set to about 35% max. Keeping the red and green lower can help reduce unwanted algae. Some people like a very blue/violet tank. In that case reduce the white LEDs.

    At that point see how the tank does for awhile and adjust the setting up or down depending upon the coral growth and the nuisance algae you get. Then you have the lighting set correctly for your tank.

    Are you sure the zoos are closing due to the light? What about pests or water quality?
