    note the pics were taken at the lowest intensity cause otherwise you just saw these 2 white patches on this black background to give you guys an idea how bright these lights are:)

    i believe the light that you can grow coral under is 60 cm x 60 cm but i have heard or guys put 1 over 90x90x35 or so i think and they have an island in the middle and the corners are lit okay

    Hi SAPico

    If I can give you a bit of advice. As I understand with the radion you can lower the amount of red the LED unit displays. In some research studies it has been proven tha the Red colour spectrum actually stunts growth in corals.

    See the following thread
