    Hi Guys,

    I am wanting to know if two 600mm 16000k razor led unit would be good enough for a 1800 x 700 x 700 with SPS and LPs corals?

    thanks guys

    my guess is no, 600mm unit at best will cover 700 x 700 at 24" deep, with 2 units over 1800mm you will have some shading, but what model? then you can look at their site and get the footprint and PAR map readings

    You might have slight shading with the 160watt. However you can place high light corals under the lights directly. Or if you haven't scaped as yet, one option is to do a sort of two island scaping under the lights.

    You MIGHT be better off with 3 of the 120watt units IMO
