Originally from ticket #561.
Hello, I have a 24g aquapod with stock 32w 10k and 32w 453 pc. im looking to replace the stock lights with leds. I was thinking.. a 453nm stunner strip for moonlight, a magenta/445 for dawn, and 12k/445 for day. I have hard and soft corals and a clam. Everything is doing really well with my current setup, just looking to reduce the heat and maybe add some redish tints. do you think im heading in the right direction? what would you do in an aquapod?
also, when I do switch to LEDs, should I have a (break-in) period for the fish and coral? Thanks
Thank you for contacting Ecoxotic and showing interest in our LED products. The most popular combination is using:
12K White/445nm Blue Panorama Pro Module
445nm Blue Panorama Pro Module
2 x 60w Transformers
2 x Inline Dimmers
The above combination would work better (and is cheaper) than the above listed Stunner LED strips you listed. We usually recommend running the 12K White/Blue strip at 50% for the first week to allow the corals to acclimate.
