I have gone from ATI T5 to Ecotech Radions to Pacific Sun Pandora S. Now I am in the market for new lights. I have been looking at the Mitras 6200 HV. Couple of questions if anyone can help.

1. Does the Mitras comes with the hanging kit or do I need to buy separately?
2. Are there other mounting options that does not involve DIY project?
3. How many would I need for a 72" L x 30" W x 27" D?

#2 - 3rd party. Quite nice.

#3 - I'd go with 3.
I'm on a 60" x 20" x 22" and run 2 of them sideways as my width allows me to. A local reefer runs 2 on a 72" x 30" x 24" and is looking to add a 3rd.

Thanks for the info ReefClown. The 3rd party mount looks good. Can you PM me info on where I can get those and how much they cost.

#1 - Yes, a hanging kit is included.

#2 - Other than using the included hanging kit, the setup ReefClownMIA posted is a very sleek way to mount the Mitras LX.

#3 - Two fixtures will cover the whole tank, no problem. If you have mainly SPS, I'd go for 3 of them because you'll get the most even light distribution and intensity throughout the whole tank.

Best decision ever. I have 4!
You won't be disappointed.

You'll love it. I have a bunch of sample projects if you're interested in trying one out, or customize from there

I am happy with the light so far. Good looking design. Great spread. I had trouble connecting lamps to the GHL control center. Once I figured out the port and driver installation, it was smooth sailing. Love how the light simmers and comes close to MH looks.
