    I am thinking too much light! Can you dim them down? Change color to all blue?

    They aren't dimmable and only one cord. They are old leds. Should I just run blue for a while?

    Raising the LED's is a good idea. I raised mine on the frag system up 6" a couple weeks ago and have noticed positive results.

    I am running one panel. Have bought some zoas and palys and seen zero growth? I started using coral frenzy and nothing my palys are really extended. Should I lower the light?

    If your params are good and the corals are open and happy LEAVE IT ALONE. EVERY TANK GOES THROUGH GRIWTH SPURTS.

    You can try to move your lifht or change flow zones if you must. Every experienced person will tell you that when they leave rheir tanks alone, everything starts growing

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it. And with past track record...it not dieing means it definetely ain't broke so I'd let it be bud

    True that. Just keep having rock's fall and wondering if anyone has had luck with coral frenzy?
