AI SOL is tough to figure it out..

I have biocube 29 with PC and reefbrite LEDs and now AI sol.

It's 14" above from water line.

Set 25-25-25.

I noticed all zoa has long stalk it's like trying to reach light..

Does it mean need more light ?

Thanks
Jake

Yes sir that's exactly what's happening although some zoas are naturally long stalked most tend to reach when not enough light is being provided try to A move the zoas up or B increase the light but not a crazy increase

It's like also I said before, sometimes when you have alot of zoas or Palys on one rock too bunched up, they extend their base so they can reach up for the light and fight the other zoas or palys to get the light. My zoas that are bunched up all do it, and I have alot of light on my tank

Well. it didnt really any change...

I remebered myself that before i changed the light..it was more white than blue..its like 12K.

with AI SOL it look like 18K-20K.

So i adjusted 28% white, 25 % blue and 20% royal blue..its more like 14K..


I just reduced ROyal blue and increased white and i start noticing LPS start to show opening...

Thanks
