Recommendations for strength?

Good morning all!

I have a brand new 32" v2 over my 36l x 13h tank.

Lights are 8" off the water. I was wondering if anyone could recommend a lighting schedule and max % for an all sps tank!

Thanks in advance!

I take others advice, but only Truly learn from my own experience.

Ammonia/Nitrate: 0; Calcium: 420; Magnesium: 1350; Alkalinity: 8.3dKH; Salinity: 1.025; Temp abt 79.

Current Tank Info: 90g Mixed Reef; 75g Fuge; PM r36 SUMP; PM RL150; RB Photon 48

Here is my current light schedule:

My tank is 20" deep and mostly sps corals, so for a 13" deep tank I'd lower all the power levels by 50% to start and then raise them over time to about 2/3rds of my levels.

Im running the same setup 32in V2 over a 36long x 13tall 40b. 8in off the water

I max at 50% RB CH3 and just ratio the other Channels to my RB setting.

Watch for bleaching these are powerful lights and that should be enough for good SPS colors
