I'm getting back into freshwater after a few years in reefing. I got myself a 10 gallon with some plants like monte carlo, anubias nana petite, microsword, moneywort, scarlet temple, hydrocotyle. The goal is to have a easy tank where I don't have to trim anything every week. I had the whole setup with CO2 and all in the past and it was too much work although enjoyable.

I am to reuse my AI Prime HD (REEF version). Anyone have any settings that are good for a 10 gallon low tech tank? I found a random one but it would be great if I can get growth without also getting an algae bloom since the light is strong.

Yes the old version. The colors are UV, Violet, Royal, Blue, Green, Deep Red, Cool White.

So do I just max out Deep Red, Green, Blue? Do I also max out Royal Blue? What about UV and Cool White?
