By the way my settings are David Saxbys settings on the AI website. I just toned down the intensity to about 67% for my tank size during the max times of the day. Funny I was writing this as you posted your thread just before mine.
Lights run from 10 AM to 11 PM on my AI prime HD light. The following screenshots are my settings.
I feed reef roids every six days along with phytofeast and mysis shrimp between those six days. And to change it up I use pellets to feed the corals that would eat them. I also cut up shrimp from the grocery store and feed my rock flower anemone my Duncan and Acan every three or four days. I run two small carbon bags, 1 GFO bag, and 1 Purigen bag along with bio cylinders for the biological filtration all in an In Tank media basket in the first chamber. If you are familiar with the Fluval Evo it has three chambers in the AIO tank. The middle chamber has a small fuge with three mangrove plants, a ball of cheato, and small pieces of live rock. The one thing to balance the whole system is a good cleanup crew, which includes amphipods, various nails, a couple of hermit crab‘s, and a couple of emerald crabs, a scarlet shrimp, and a toxedio urchin. Also it has hitchhikers like tiny feather duster‘s, spaghetti worms, bristle worms etc. I also feed the fish and corals Brine shrimp that I culture from eggs and feed right and after they hatch within 24 to 48 hours. That way they still have the egg sacs on their bodies and have plenty of nutritional value. Most of the corals close up including the Zoea’s, Palys and even the Anemone when I feed the Brine Shrimp.
Hope that helps. I’m still learning and only been in this hobby for about a year now but I truly love it. Thanks for the positive feedback and kind words.
