Im running 60% (which at AB+ is 42% at peak time) and will go up to 70-75% in a few weeks. 30% IMO is too low.

I guess only one guy had success with this. I have the same light mixed with a halide and four T5s. Looking to go all LED to avoid bulb changes...

Plenty more than me out there.
How about Sanjay? He switched from MH.

I still love a mh/t5 thank though, with blue led for extra pop.

That's such a cool tank. He went thru some really tough times. Nice to be able to bounce back and have an awesome looking tank.
I think I will stick with what I have for now.

We are looking to upgrade our 75g to a 120 and swap out lights. Tank is mostly softies with some LPS and a whole heap of Bubble Tip anemones

I want to just go with Gen4 Pros from the start (figure why not) ... Just not sure on 15 vs 30 and how many

Probably most answers would be two XR30s since it's a 4'x2'x2' tank.
You can get away with three XR15s evenly spaced since you are not keeping any SPS but XR30s are a better bet if you do decide to throw in some sticks. I've known fellow SPS reefers to go with three XR30s on their 4' tank.

Hey Pedro,
Did you start off with the Radions? How much growth are you getting?

Thanks

The growth and colors are comparable to the infamous 400w radium (which I ran for many years). It's been 3 1/2 months with these g4 pro's and I'm very pleased. Running AB+ 100%

So how do you guys decide what % to use, without any type of par measuring? What's a sign of light starvation on an ulns tank?

So far I love mine! Just upgraded my g3s. So far it appears brighter and more vivid at the same settings as my g3s. Started filming clips for a video on it
