    Hello 3reefers. I've got a new LED lighting system put into my 12 gallon tank and a Typhon controller running the system. What I don't know is what times I should program in. I have the following options.

    Channel 1 and Channel 2, 1 is all blue's and 2 is white's.
    Time on
    Time off
    Duration of dimming
    Max output

    So I'm trying to figure out what time the blue's should come on and how long it should take them to go from off to full brightness, then what time the blue's should go off.

    Same with the white's.

    Also what percentage of output is a good place to start for soft corals only right now?
