I have a 36 by 18 by 24in aquarium. Should I go with the V1 32in or the V2 24in. Write answer in poll and reply.

Neither, use a 32" V2. Or the 32" Aquasanrise.

There is nothing wrong with the 32" V1 if you are on a budget. IMHO the 24" fixtures will work and if hung 8" to 12" off the water should cover the tank end to end. But the 32" versions offer so many additional leds that you'll run at a lower setting, and have great end to end coverage and have light for even the most light hungry sps corals. They'll all do the job, it's a matter of budget and how much 'better" (relatively speaking) a fixture you want to pay for. BTW, better means more options for you to play with and not better light for the coral (except maybe in the end to end coverage department).

I hope others will have some experience covering a 36" tank with a 24" fixture and will also offer advise.
