    Default time to ramp up the LEDs

    First of the "fine tuning questions"

    SO can I get some suggestions on how slowly to acclimate my stuff to these new lights. I have started them at about 20% power what do you all think about 10% increase per week till they are "looking" as bright as I would like? Is that too slow, too fast or just right. Tell me about what you did Tom

    That should be ok, but don't judge your stopping point by visual brightness. Your eye is a poor judge. Let your tank show you if it needs more light or not.
