question about my GHL mitras
Ok i have it connecting to the laptop with windows 8 and its running great. However from 23:00- 0550 the lights are on like 2% RB not alot but they are on to give that Blue hue affect. I have the times all checked and the lighting starts from 06:00 -23:00. in between there is showing that some leds are still on. will this effect the corals its enough to have the green colors glow like a dull actinic.

I also have my lights on 2% RB during the night. I've also noticed there is a channel or two that remain just slightly on even though in my program they are set to 0.

do you have a 0% set point for the morning?

for example

11pm 0%
6am 0%
8am 25%

if you do not have a stop and start 0% then once the lamp reaches 0% at night it will start ramping back up to your first set point %

yes i have zero points for all channels except RB at midnight and 2pm. i'll take another look and see which colours stay on. they are so dimly lit you cannot see the effect on the tank.

Also, make sure you guys have your moon cycles turned off on ALL channels. I had similar issues in the beginning with my light.

+1 yes this will override other settings, if you don't want the lamp on at all during the night then turn off this setting.
