    I am looking for a decent schedule for my Radions, I have tried a few pre made ones I found on the internet that were supposed to be good for sps, I made my own that was congruent with how I liked to view the tank, and so far I have found none that don't either wash out the colors in my soft/lps corals or look way to blue.

    Looking to see what everyone else out there with Radions is running. I like the ramp up ramp down method with a 1-30min peak I seemed to do best with this technique.

    The schedule I am currently running has a 3 hour peak which seems good for some of my sps, bad for other sps and washes out all of the color in most of my lps

    How deep is your tank?

    Here's a screen grab of my current schedule.

    I have two Radion Pros over my 120gal; supplemented with two AquaBlue+ T5 bulbs.
    I downloaded this program from an Ecotech FB group that posted this schedule from Steve Tyree. It's very similar to the Radiant Colors template that I had been using for years. I modified the length of the schedule to accommodate my viewing preferences by a couple of hours. I had gotten good growth and colors from the original Radiant Colors template and the Tyree template, but adding the two T5 bulbs has made a difference.
