how's the coverage of the 24 v2 on a 40 breeder? I run the 1st gen 24 photon with optics removed and it covers it well.

now with the v2 it has less leds and im not sure if I can remove the optics and if it will cover my tank

Hi Christopher,

The Photon 24-V2 covers a mixed reef 40 breeder well, they actually have more power than the 16" version so they do very well on 3 foot tanks. And though there is less LEDs- the LEDs are more powerful, there is actually more wattage than the original 24s.

I am running a 24" V2 on a 90 36x24x24 so far so good had it up on a 40br holding plenty of light I recommend it.
tank is really new but the new LR and rock mems are doing great.

I'm in the same situation. Trying to decide between the 24 & 32. Sounds like the 24 will do fine on a 40. Anyone else have input?
