Can anyone recommend a good plant setting for this light, at the moment I’m running on 50% intensity and 50% colour 7 hours per day, and am having a few algae issues, the tank has been up and running for about 2 months. Co2 injected, ferts Tmc complete 4ml per day. Thank you

You don’t mention tank dimensions but I ran my Kessil A160s on 100% (53cm tall tanks), and colour temp slightly blue rather than slightly yellow (which I dislike unreasonably)

For algae, I always suggest beginning with additional water changes, trim damaged or grossly affected leafs, rinse filter media to remove debris/organics

Low light can also lead to algae issues re poor plant leaf health
