How many units do I need for a 48" tank? It is an elos 120. Is 2 enough for I need 3?

If you're going full blown HIGH LIGHT SPS, I would do 3 of them, front to back.
If you're going mixed, and would like some areas of medium light to home some corals that would do better in not high light areas, then 2x left to right long ways.

I run 2x left to right on a Reefer 450 which is 5ft wide. Mixed reef, and I've had to reduce intensity a little, to appease some of my corals.

Thanks! What is the major difference between the new model and the previous one of 6200hv?

The new 7200 model series has an Ultra Violet chip, shares the new Power Balancing technology with the Light Bars, allowing a decent overdrive of channels if desired.
Also will have IP based WiFi, and MyGHL compatibility in the future.
Latest Generation Cree chips, and overall higher output.

I'm loving the 7206 I run ...:)

How does mixing two fixtures together? I have an opportunity to get a used 6200HV but almost placed 2 new 7200 model through my fish store already (still delay--when will it starts shipping within the US). Can they communicate with each other or I have to control the 6200 and 7200 separately. I am new to Mitras. Currently, I have AI Vega and Hydra 52 but used Kessil before. All of them you can control the light together. Thanks for answering my quesitons!

You could mix and match, though it would produce different spectral displays being that the LX7 has UV in place of a white chip - as such the LX6 can potentially look different than the LX7.
But - it is absolutely possible :)

Thank you for the quick reply. Do you know when shipment will be sent out to US stores or people that pre-order?

I believe the US will see the LX7's within a couple of weeks, pre-orders and orders will ship in order.
Depending on the point of sale and when said point of sale placed the order will dictate when they will receive them.

Has any new LX7 shipped within the US yet? Thanks! I am excited to get the new light. I have 2 Kessil 360WE as temporary light right now.
