    Radions and sps growth/colour

    Im playing around with the lighting temps on my radions and decided to keep them at 14K. What should I expect the possible growth to be like under 14K running at 75% intensity?
    Im trying to maintain both growth and colour on the sps such as this ORA Ponape Birdsnest I just aquired.

    I'm not sure about changing lights spectrum for best growth. I'm just happy if they stay alive LOL

    That was easy lol

    Mitch, you have to set the colors
    That you / the corals like
    And leave it at least for a couple of weeks
    As mentioned before
    Photosynthesis has been seen
    In different UV spectrum
    So actinic is the closest to
    UV unless you have it
    And also Photosynthesis was
    Seen in Cyan spectrum
    And bit of red
    Personally I think
    Close to the blue is better
    But again set the color and monitor for a couple of weeks..
    Also monitor all the elements

    well said luigi, ive been running radions for years, last year updraded to the pros, def time and consistancy is key to them or any lighting system, watch your corals, they are the ones that will tell you if they are happy or not
