Figured I would start a new topic where we could all share our radion lighting programs. I have one for a mixed reef that was given to me and it's a great program if anyone would like to try it out let me know.

I'm really interested as to what you guys have. I had a great set up, had nice color and growth. Of course I had to make a change and I'm very upset with myself that I did because now I can't find the program I had. Can we start sharing programs as Emicheletti has tried to start a year ago? I personally would love to see how you guys run your Radions and I'm sure it would benefit others as well.

Ditto I have gen 1 radions over my 125 I'd love to hear what everyone else is doing mostly my lights are on blues but it's driving my wife nuts she likes a whiter color . Open to suggestions. I am trying for mushrooms leathers zoas and anemones.

Yeah ..it's spot on too!I like to use the link cause you can adjust everything to the same as your light is configured and know what the par is (I used a par meter to verify also)

My Radions are 11" above water level. I did not realize I loose so much par. My colors and pe are ok but growth isn't great. Should I bring my overall intensity up? Currently I'm maxed out at 55%...and my lenses are 120 degrees

I have mine mounted on the RMS bracket and it sits 9 inches above the water and with the aquascape I have (alternative reef)the top shelf sits at about 4-5 inches below water level..you can try turning up your whites a bit to balance out the par you need using the link and see how it goes..if you have the Dropbox app I can send you my graph right from ecosmartlive just need your email address

I use the stock, pre-programmed shallow reef natural mode at 100% . 8' 240g. SPS dominated reef with 6 radions ( 4 gen 2 with 120 optics a d 2 gen 1). Lights are 8" off the surface. Growth and coloration are excellent.

I would be interested in your schedule, just can't seem to find a good lighting format, seem to always end with algae outbreaks - of course no proof lights are the full problem - still your schedule would be a nice test - thanks

been looking for a discussion about radion lighting... heres what i run..

(1) radion xr30 g3pro with wide angle lens kit over a 80g deep blue rimless (48x24x16)
mounted using ecotech RMS (50.5 rms rail kit) (puts the fixture 9 in above water)

keeping a mixed reef, dominant in sps tho...

lights are on from 9am to 11pm
schedule goes something like this...
9-10 UV
10- 1 ALL BLUE
1-4 PHX (daylight)
4-10 ALL BLUE
10-11 UV

my fixture runs at 40% max intensity ( coming down from 70% )

i am controlling VIA apex WXM
