    The fuller spectrum the better. I personally would use both lights at reduced intensity. It's hard for me to say what intensity as I dont have any dimmable fixtures. Are you going to ramp up and down? With the slower growers I dont think you would need more than 80% of the Finnex. Using both I think max would be 40% of each... but only maybe 3-4 hours at that intensity. If you can't ramp up and down I'd probably do like 30% of each for 6 hours and evaluate every 2 weeks.

    I was wondering if you can help me select the color spectrum for programing the Current light. Should I go with either:

    Sunlight- lower K spectrum like 6,500 K.
    Full Spectrum- All color and white LEDS at full spectrum.



    Also, shouldn't I start out with just 6 hours or even less of light a day at first? So will not get algae?


    The light fixture is much narrower than the Finnex one- do you think I would have too much light if I use both my Planted+ light and the Current at the same time?
    The Planted plus would go through its normal 24 hour cycle and I could program the Current light for 5-6 hours daily?
    Thank you!
