Hi there- I'm getting ready to replace my 250 mh bulbs that are about 8 months old. Do I need to acclimate the tank to new light by reducing the time period the lights are on? Would I need to acclimate if I was going from 10k to 20k or the other way around?

Thanks

Keeping the same bulbs or going up in K you don't need to do anything. Going up in PAR (typically down in K) then you would need to back off your photo period and acclimate.
