Lights too strong for Coralline Algae?!?!
So here is my situation, I have an 8 bulb T5 HO fixture with 4 ATI Blue (+'s) / 2 Aquablue Spcial ATI / 2 Mid Days. All are 24 watts and give of high Par from what I have read.
I had to mess around with my tank a bit since I got an SPS, IDK what kind it is, and some GPS. I noticed that I had quite a bit of healthy amount of Coralline on my live rock but it was under the rocks. I even noticed that there is several diff. kinds like green, orange, purple, pink. But nun on top of the rocks, just a little that was bearlly noticeable growth on them. I want the tank to be over-run by it ( I Know I will have to Clean the glass more often but I already do) and I think it has to do with my light.
If I only run 1 Aquablue Special and 1 Mid Day and 2 Blue (+'s) will it be able to support the SPS and GSP?
