    @Aquetas I'm selling because my upgraded tank size has changed significantly from 2M to 3.2M and it's just too expensive to light with 8 LED units. Another complication is the glass thickness is now 19mm and the Vortech MP 40s are no longer suitable.

    @ the rest all commenting on the price, if you are interested then make an offer and I'll consider it.

    let me know if you decide to let go of these.

    You need 3 maybe 4 extra Radions to cover the extra length of the new tank. I suggest to first find out what alternative lights will cost you. I know you will get some money from this sale. But if you can still get some of the Radions at the recent cheaper sale price. Point is, what other LEDs option and what is the price on them to cover the 3.2m tank, compared to buying 3 extra Radions at the discounted price. Most likely you already did this calculation. 2 * 1500 Illumina units will cost about 40G, and extra 3 Radions about 20G. Taking the 18G on this sale as deposit on the Illumina then you still need to pay in 22G on the Illumina. About the same as getting 3 extra Radions. Even on 4 Radions, then 5g extra spend on Radions option.

    Unless you got another LED option.

    .....and you only get three colours with Illuminas. You'll need to buy some extra pads for them to get more colours.

    This is a very good price .... And also to correct the guys above,the price of these units are not dropping to accomodate new 'PRO' units, certain LFS's may be having sales but according the reviews from Macna ,the gen1 and gen2 will keep its price and the Pro will cost ± $200 more ....these units are built using superior quality material and high quality leds and also is 1 of the 2 only full spectrum (standard) units on the market...

    Another thing to take into consideration is that this is the gen1 unit, gen1 unit with TIR upgrade has higher par/pur values than gen2 that comes standard with TIR but less Leds cause of changed from 3w - 5w on some leds ..... And its easily upgradable to Pro (which includes more blue aswell as uv led lights) as soon as the cluster are available on the market making this Radion go head to head with Pacific sun Leds units which cost double the price

    Hey @Nemeziz_za

    I'll take all 3, delivered counter to counter, for R14k, or one for R5000. I know it's a low offer, but I've bought 3 of these (newer ones) the last 6 months (plus built a tank), so these would be a real luxury to replace T5s on my second tank. Better than the current "no offer", at least ;)

    @Nur Hi, no they dont have the lenses.
    @RiaanP and @ STC-1000 good points, guess Im half way there already ...
    @abgg118 Sorry mate, not really negotiable on the price and your offer is just way to low.
