Thanks guys. I love the lighting so far. The only issue i have with it is some lps corals bleach under it, even if they are in a shady spot. Right now i got them upto 80% and that is as high as i want to go. They are set to mimic a 20k radium bulb in spectrum

would you mind posting a few pic of what your lps looks like bleaching. reason is I just lost two colonies of 80plus heads each of frogspawn and was running my diy 216 bulb cree led's at blues 60% and whites 45%, about 14in above water. I soooooo need to get my hands on a PAR meter. the frogspawn was on the bottom of 27in tall tank.

Thank you i really want to get a macro lens to get some close up shots. I was also playing with the white balance on the camera. These last shots came out in more of a natural color that you would see under the sun, instead of the more common blueish tint

+1 on the twilight dragon.. does it die off if you look at it funny.. or has it been pretty hardy? looks like one of those i'll only ever 'dream about'...
