    SPS Acro Lighting 120g

    Running two Evergrow IT-2040's on a 120g, also predominately SPS, since January 2013. Everything grows great and no algae. Some of the SPS are low in the rocks and some sitting on the sand.

    Running Evergrows - how long?

    Have been running two Evergrow IT2040's with custom LED configuration, over a 120 gal. mostly SPS tank, since January 2013. Started at about 20% and ramped up to 100% over the first couple of weeks as I recall. After that I switched to the default factory mode at half-hour steps. Total cycle is 16 hours. Takes 6 hours to ramp up to 100% blue and white, first three hours are blue only,; then its at 100% for 4 hours; then ramps down to 0ff over the next 6 hours, the last three blue only. Haven't done any PAR measurements, but verything grows very well.

    Don't know if this discussion on RC is any help, but a reset might be a place to start. http://www.reefcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2031367&highlight=low+amp+reading

    Bottom of tank

    Yup, put it right on the glass, sit the rock on the egg crate, and cover it with the sand...the egg crate not all the rock It spreads out the load from the rock, but more important, I think, is it keeps from having any pressure points on the glass from uneven rock surfaces. The rock is also more stable, since critters can't really undermine it.
