So tomorrow I'm picking up a ledzeal malibu s200, now o know you can program it to your needs but how will I know what I need?

I understand that it has a few programs already on it and it also has a storm setting.

Any advice on this light fitting would be great I'm still learning so a sponge to take any advice

Thank you in advance

Hi , I've no experience with the specific light but settings will depend on tank depth and coral stock , I'd suggest maybe starting with a lower setting and ramp up a bit at a time over time . Maybe someone here may know a little more about the specifics .

Thanks:

Thank you for your reply,

I have the light now and ran it on a stock setting yesterday (which I now regrete) it ran from 6am till 10pm with a ramp up and ramp down but corals and fish I have not happy as a result.

I have disconnected today and using old one and going to have a look at this new one again and set my own program and hopefully with a few little adjustments it will be fine.

Really nice light though happy with it but alot more technical than I'm used to
