Zoa lighting help

So I am a Zoa fanatic...that can't keep Zoas!! I have tried everything for this one animal and no luck. I have spent thousands on them and they always fail to thrive and then melt away. My parameters are perfect, my water is dirty enough, and I have eliminated the possibility of pests like Zoa eating Nudi's. So now I am trying to fiddle with my lighting--perhaps it is too strong and that is what is melting them. I have 3 Ecotech radion XR30 Pro's with diffusers, and 4 DIY T5's. I'm hoping that someone has a template for the Radions they can share that is good for growing Zoas?

Sounds like a lot of light to me but if acclimatised properly should be able to handle high light I have mine under Radions running at 80%. Also have had them under kessils at near 100%. What’s your flow like?
