    The beauty of an apex. I ran Tidal Swell during day time at max on my 2 mp60s then for 2 hours at the beginning and end of each day I ran Nutrient transport mode and at night I ran lagoon mode.

    ^ Yup. I start and end the day with Reef Crest; use NTM during the day. "Sleep" (constant at 45%) overnight.

    I switch mine from Reefcrest to Short Pulse to NTM to Long Pulse throughout the the week. Kinda just depends on what I feel like. Reefcrest is the default mode for sure.
