If you do get it, my only suggestion would be to change one of the white 12K bulbs with a super blue bulb. The super blue will still have a lot of usable light for your corals but help with keeping nasty algaes down as they do not like the bluer color tones as much as they like white/red color tone

Having the bulbs on different power cords is a good option to have as well. If you find this give you too much light, you can always just use two of the four bulbs.

I have a off-brand 8 bulb fixture on a 90 gallon SPS tank and I really like it. But I only use 6 of the 8 bulbs as all 8 is way too much for my tank
The light is all setup and it looks great but seems very bright when all 4 lights are running.

When Cliff mentioned I could run 2 bulbs should I change the bulbs to make sure at least 1 blue and 1 12k on the same switch? As it is now 1 control for 12k 1 control for actinic and 1 control for lead's. I think I know the answer (yes) but want to make sure. Alternatively, would it be okay if I had either 1 12k and 2 actinics or vice versa to bring the brightness down?


Thanks for the help!
