You may want to look at adding some greens, reds, natural daylight and UV...... Here's what mine looks like
I personally think there may be too much blue in your fixture. I don't know. I would like to hear from someone who maybe has more experience with LED's than I do and the different layouts.
Could be. I wonder if others are having growth issue with their fixture.
Possibility....I don't know man. The first thing i would attack are those parameters though. I think bringing some of that down, especially the mag, you will see some improvement. You may also think about backing off of your blues a bit and increasing your whites a bit. How's your coralline growth?
The back wall has some, but it's old and pretty colorless *(blue-gray). I've never been able to grow it on my rocks. Small pin-head spots pop up on the front wall every month or so. What percentage should I go with of each?
Do you think you could achieve something like a 14k look? Your stuff looks to be more of a 20000k look right now. Here's the thing though, I wouldn't change a bunch of stuff at once. Get those parameters lowered a bit, give it a week or two and then change the lights a bit.
I should probably include my flow for comprehensiveness. I have 490 gph and 420 gph Koralia.
With a roughly 2:1 blue to white ratio, what percentage do you think I should go with?
