    So after more effort than needed i finally have a lighting setup that seems to be working. Now i need to tweak it for better color.

    My green and red channels are 15% while my whites are 20%, blues @ 100%.

    I've got a few corals I'm trying to get back to their original color and it's been determined that intensity isn't likely the driver. Ex: Green Nepthia is army green instead of it's normal neon green.

    Is it army green under your led, or in daylight? Natural light.

    Update after continuing to tweak I thought I'd post my latest settings. The current is 4% higher in red and green then the last iteration (20% previous). At the prior settings the color has improved significantly over all previous setups. Particularly the red blasto and war brain have notably better coloration. My pectina is much better as well for a pop of green.

    Corals that still are lacking is an ultra yellow mushroom and my orange ricordia are touch and go. Screenshot_20180316-112342.png

    Sunset has started but color is accurate. Naturally the red shows better in the full daylight.

    Went from washed out red (25% whites, 14% red and green) to fantastic red (20% white, 20% red and green, 5% more intensity overall).

    Was pale/dingy green, now one of the brightest.

    Mostly shows the orange, the yellow body is more blah but growing quickly. IMG_20180316_175908.jpg.jpg
    Added 1.5" of growth since attaching a couple months back. Red has also intensified nicely from pale to dark maroon to a more visible red.

    Slightly juiced but still very close... waiting on more teal eyes to form.
