Have you been able to figure out the time for the lights? I can set the number of hours I want the white leds to be on but no the time I want that to start.

I think I sussed it. But I think you have to set it at the time you want the white light to come on everyday because you set the number of hours the white light comes on. Blue is automatic. I'm very impressed with the light tbh. Both are very impressive. I wish the lights on my Freshwater tanks were as good.

Just noticed the tank temp is 24C. I'd increase that to 26 or 27 (slowly over a few days ideally). Over the summer, the room temp will rise a lot, and your tank will hit higher temps without fans/chiller to stop it. Having the normal temp higher, means a smaller variation, and this is key for marines. A swing of more than a couple of degrees (even that is a lot), is a big problem for some fish, but certainly for a lot of corals.
