I don't have much experience with this tank. I've it set up for 2 months. I'm still trying to work out a good lighting schedule. I've been out of the hobby for 5 years, and I know things have changed some. Right now I have the blues on for 12 hours , the middle setting on for 8 hours of that and full on for 6 hours. As of right now it is a soft corals only tank

What type of light do you use?

LED that came with it
Oh duh, Biocube lol. You have any algae issues or bleaching in the tank? Softies only you don't need a ton of daylight, maybe 4 hours of full lights with blue all day. You'll probably have to adjust depending on algae growth and nutrients in the tank. Hair algae takes off, turn it down and that kind of thing. I haven't had one of these in a few years, had a 16 biocube, but I ran full for 4 hours, medium for 6 and blue all day if I recall with zoas only and it was pretty happy. Will depend a lot on how much your feed the tank and that kind of thing, With more nutrients you can run a brighter schedule, low nutrient tanks might bleach with higher light.

I'm starting get algae growth. I'll probably back down the full light 2 more hours. Thanks
