View Full Version : 2 Photon 24 v2. Enough for 6' Lps tank?

I'm looking to cover a standard 125g tank (6') that has pretty much all lps corals in it. I have run a 6 bulb 60" T5 setup over the last 6 yrs and finally want to take the led plunge. I wanted to get (2) Photon 24 v2 and supplement them with (2) 60" T5 bulbs. Is the spread on the Photons enough to to get adequate coverage or would it be best to get three of them? How much spread can be expected from each light hanging approx 10" off the water? Would two actually cover a six foot tank as your chart showed? Thanks

2 Photon 24-V2 should be plenty of light for an lps/mixed reef tank that size, 10" off of the water is a good mounting height.
