    Default New light

    I recently upgrades to MH. Ive been running PC lights prior. I heard you can't just jump right in with MH. If this is true what would be the "break in" procedure so my corals don't become toast?

    Thank you!

    lift the light up high, put eggcrate and multiple layers of window screening over the top of the tank. Every few days remove a layer of window screen. Once all the window screen and the eggcrate is gone lower the light 0.5-1 inch every few days until its where you want it. Keep an eye on your corals reactions. If they start to bleach or look stressed go back a step for a few days before moving forward again.
