    I would like advice on which light to go for for my 60x60 cube.

    Radion G3 Pro @ R4700 or Zetlight Qmaven ZT6500 @ R4900 ?

    Is the G3 Pro second hand, as the new price I found is R13k+

    The G3 pro is a very strong light and on a 60x60 cube you will be lucky if you run it up to 60% before bleacing the coral, are you planning an sps tank?

    I have a 200 l cube should be about the same size as yours mine is 55 cm deep with the radion xr15 pro. It covers the entire tank and and I have to be carefull not burning the corals.

    Another option is Kessil A360w as a pendant, will cover 60x60cm easily. And the newer model is controllable in terms of sunset/sunrise. I think it is R6500 new or so.

    The Radion Gen3 Pro is 185w of leds if not mistaken. Depending on coral choice, the single cluster Radion could be a better option. The XR15w Pro.

    The wattage on the Zetlight is 90w The Kessil A360w is 90w.
    Comparing the XR15 single cluster Radion with them is an OK comparison to make. Cannot compare the Gen3 Pro double cluster.

    Its like comparing a 3L car performance to a 1.5L car. And, no turbo or superchargers or whatever.
