Radion X35 G4

Hi! I have been running the Radion X35 G4 for about 2 weeks now. I am running two of them. I keep reading that the lights should to be ran at 100% due to how powerful it is. I hear stories about corals melting. Im not sure I believe this!

I have been using the acclimation feature to warm my coral up to the light but have max power set at 55%. Do you recommend I run at full power?

I dont have a PAR meter so I figured I would ask!

Tank Spec
55 gallon
48"x13"x21"

Coral
couple SPS and soft corals

Not many people run their XR30's at 100%. The leds are alot more powerful than it looks.
Checkout this poll.
Even though it was done several years ago it can still give you a idea on general power levels people are using their lights at.

I would start at 50% and stop at 70%.
