    So what are my options here?

    I was looking at a Kessil 150, or would i need two of them? I like the look of them with the gooseneck, nice and neat. Other ideas?

    How are you at DIY, make your own, might come out much cheaper?
    Other than that, I think lots of guys will have their inputs and ideas, but in the end it's how much you have to spend. I also like the kessils, very nice units.

    DIY just wont look as neat is all and I have no clue how to make them nor the inclination to learn.

    Kessil 150 ( how many, one or two?)
    or
    Kessil 350

    Kessil 150 is rated for 60x60 tanks one should do it...

    but ill go for the A350 just becasue it has the option to change colour spectrum.. but as far as i know they sold out and next batch only 1 months time..

    Im also using the Kessil 150 on a 60x60 and havnt had problems..

    Could you not take two different 150w (colour types), or is this way to much, I dunno, I always like more light than not enough?

    I'm setting up my 65x65x50 cube and I'm gonna issue the radion just because you can change it literally to what ever you want and the program's are amazing

    Quite pricy though

    The Kessil 350 tuna blue at R5000 looks a good option

    If you spending the much on a led fixture you would expect it to be programmable I believe but it would be an overkill.....take my worked and just google radion powered cubes or something along those lines and you will be amazed

    My 2c

    If I'm not mistaken the 150 only has white light? Maybe the 350 is a better option...??

    The 150 comes in 4 flavors so yeah a 350 makes more sense
