Im setting up a new 15 gallon, and im planning on lighting it with a current sundial fixture. 4x24w T5HO with individually contoured reflectors... not individual, individually contoured. I know the regular novas arent that good, but i know people who grew SPS with them up high with a 4 bulb fixture, not individual reflectors.

So basically, what is the deal? anyone using them?

I'm definitely going to use one, because i can get a great deal on anything made by current. Im just wondering what to expect!

The "regular" Nova with 4X24 watts over a 12" deep tank would be great. I ran a single 65 watt PC over a 15 long with Zoas, Mushrooms and LPS for 2 years. No problem. R

outer orbit with t5 and HQI is my favorite current fixture

the new sundial would be more then enough for that tank. you could use the regular nova extreme without the individual reflectors on a tank that small

I think I am going to get the 48" Sundial when I upgrade my FOWLR to new 90g. It is only $60 more than the regular Nova but has built in timers (Saves lots of sockets!) and better reflectors.
