    Any Ecotech Radion supporters out there - what levels are you running your lights?

    Mine is currently sitting at 45%. Corals seems happy, but not getting the colours I was hoping for. Fiddling with intensity levels is unfortunately something that can end bad very quickly....Please share your experiences.

    I dont have the radions but the pacific suns. I found that the lamp intensity needs to be 75 % with blue channel at 100% and white at 75 % of 75 % if u understand what im saying.

    That way you have the blue for colour and the white for growth, mine may be a bit different to yours but my Unit is 450W total power so i think its a bit higher than the radion and also has 5 blue channels ?

    Maybe give it a try?

    I ran my Gen 3 Pro on max 55%....basically only using 2 presets....the 12k....and then the 14k....little blue ramp ups in morning and ramp down at night. An my color and growth on SPS was awesome.

    I'm researching this a bit and it seems there are soooo many different opinions. Guys reckon with 20% getting awesome growth, whilst other are running at 100%. A large percentage reckons the whites are causing coral bleaching and should be turned down to 15-25% max.
