I have a 120 gal tank (24x24x48) with a 40 gal sump. I have two Radion XR30 PRO lights on tank. My problem I can't grow any corals but softy corals like mushrooms, xenia, green star polyps. I want to grow birdnest corals and plate corals and hammer/torch corals and SPS corals.

Lights are mounted 8 inches above water line.

Here is how my lights are set up now.
9:00 am intensity 0%
9:45 am 31%
10:00 am through 6:45 pm 35%
7:30 pm 30%
8:00 pm off

Here are my setting for color %
Violet 100%
Purple 100%
Blue 100%
Dark blue 100%
White 24%
Yellow 23%
Green 24%
Red 24%
POWER 50%
TOTAL WATTS 111

Please can someone tell me what my lights need to be set at to grow to other corals.

My tank Parameters are,
PH-8.2
AMMOONIA 0
NITRITE 0
NITRATE 0
PHOS 0.25
CALCIUM 590
ALKALINITY 9.74
TEMP 80
SALINITY 1.26

I have a skimmer in sump also with algae. These lights are new to me and I don't want to fry what corals are growing. Any help thanks.

turn them up?  Maxing our at 35% output seems like it would definitely limit what you could grow

I have radions... can't stand them. My advice, get Chinese box lights.
