I think my dimension are borderline which makes the decision harder. My tank is 32"L x 24"W x 20"T. This will be a SPS tank. Should I go with one XR30w Pro Gen 4 centered in the middle or two XR15s Pro Gen 4 offset? I think having one in the middle would look cleaner, but wonder if it can handle the 32" across. With that said, I won't have corals touching the glass on either side of the tank.

I think you could do either, but you would get less shading using 2 of the XR15's

Thanks, you're probably right. It would be nice to hear EcoTechs suggestion too.
Although the tank is 32x24 the aquascape rock structure is about 27x14. My plan is only sps and placed only on the rocks.

Ryshark,

A single XR30wG4 Pro would provide you with more then enough light to grow any species of coral.

Your going to want the best spread possible. To make the par as even in that size tank I would get either 2 xr30 or 4 xr15. Yes that is a lot of money but you will end up buy more later on anyway.

You think that many of the "pro" Gen 4's with the new wide optics?
