Hi there fellow reefers..
Just got myself a used 120G 4foot tank the other day. sump, stand and tank is in place, plumbing done, skimmer and return pump installed, keep making water now to fill it up. So thats the progress.

Now I need to decide on the LED fixture to get.
First option is single Radeon 3rd generation Pro with 120 degree lens
Second option would probably be two Kessil A360W
Third Razor, not sure which one, since there are a few options available there

Don't know any more of the good stuff available. At the moment on 45G cube I have Pacifica LED fixture with 105W and no control on it, all 100% power on or off. So hoping to use that on a new tank will I get what I want for it.

One thing to consider, I can't drill sealing so hanging the light is not going to work very well so different type of fixture should be used. I know Radeons now have new stands, but cant see pricing on them yet..

I would really like to have the possibility of doing all the setup of sunrise / sunset.

So any thoughts, recommendations on the light to pick, places to get it or your comments on them would be highly appreciated, thanks

you can get a gooseneck for the kessil if drilling isn't an option and a controller for dusk/dawn effect.

The radion xr15
Two them would do your tank perfectly

I would go with the kessils , they IMO have the most natural look .
Maxspect is nice but does have disco ball effect , I have never used the radions but have seen them on tanks .

I use 4 AI Sol on my 125G 6ft tank and 3 AI Vega on my 180G 6ft tank.

They do a great job and they are priced well.

ati powermodule, just led is nice but i find it is still missing something when i only had the sunbrite led, but have then added t5 as supplements (didn't want to fork out the extra cash for the ati) things really took of and colors are amazing.
