Yes in theory, but not at this time. Ecotech hasn't provided replacement LED clusters for sale. This is in the timetable in the future and it will be replaceable once they release LED Clusters for sale. I'm assuming the first one will be the stock LED clusters but they made this unit modular so it is "End User" replaceable.

This is pure speculation and not any inside information. I'm going on statements about the products made so far.

ID like to believe if they do release a cluster of leds chances are it will be a improvement to the current ones we have in otherwords instead of 3watt cree leds they would be 5 watt this unit is pretty modular to upgrade leds in that sort of way id imagine espically with the ballast supplied for this unit.

Exclamation Radions over Cadlights 50G Artisan Long - Question

Is it ok to hang the lights like this (sorry for the poor quality), or would it be more ideal to go with longer bars so that the cables are straight rather than at an angle.

What type of bars are those? And how do you attach them to your stand?

does anyone know if one light would be enough for a 75 gallon, 48 long 18 deep 20 high. mixed reef including sps, I think two would probably be amazing but not enough funds for two.

One can be enough for now. You will have to keep any corals in the 24" x 24" area under the light until you can get a second.

There are 4 over the 72" tank and the total delay is 1 hour (20 minutes apart)

It is definitely taking some getting used to, it's funny to see fish that sleep on the right side of the tank bed down for the night while the fish on the left are still swimming around.

And to top it off, my powder blue paces the entire tank all day long but when it starts to go dark he only paces the lighted areas, like the walls are closing in on him…

I've had mines for a little over 3 weeks now.

Started at 65% intensity and every week increased them by 5%. Video below shows Radions running at 75% intensity and at 12K setting. Have witnessed increased growth in as little as 3 weeks. Best watched in HD
