LX7s on a 150 tall

Vinny

I am building a 150 gallon tall. It is a 4ft wide x 2ft deep x 30 tall tank. Would (2) LX7s installed front to back give me enough/ proper light coverage? The tank has a center brace so 3 lights wont work and 4 seems like too many.

I currently have (2) hydra 52 HDs which Im pleased (from my 120) but Im thinking of switching so I can control them with my new P4.

Thanks

I would think so. I plan on using 6 for my 6'x3'x27" tank. I'm using one light per 24"x18" square area. If you use 2 on your setup you'd have 1 per 24x24 area.

Following along to see what others think.

Hi Greg,

For you tank dimensions, 2 fixtures would be the way to go! Each fixture can cover each 24x24 space without any problems.
