Vividís Rainbow Delight Lighting?

Iíve had a frag for a few months down low under 4 400 watt Ushio 14K and it hasnít grown or colored up at all. Think it needs more light?

The wind blew, the chit flew, and then they came two by two.

Current Tank Info: 375g Tanganyikan Tank & 470g mixed reef

Blast it and wait another 6 to 10 months and don't look at it wrong. I'll text you a picture of mine brother.

I'm not saying let's get rid of all the stupid people.* I'm just saying let's remove all the warning labels and let the problem work itself out.

Current Tank Info: 150g DT plumbed to an 80g frag tank and 220g sump in the basement. ~6-MP40s ~ 12 ATI powered t5s ~ Reefbrites and Radions supplementing ~ Custom GEO Skimmer ~ GEO CA Reactor 6x24~ Iwaki 70 Return ~

I have mine about 8" under water (lights are 10" above water) 8 bulb ATI powermodule, so quite high par (400+ I'd estimate).

It is a bit finicky (understatement) but as it becomes a big colony it gets way more tolerant in my experience, mine is about 8" in diameter now. Still, if you want it to retain the rainbow look, you better have rock solid parameters for at least 4-6 months at a time.

Pife is right!
