Thought I would update the tread with a few pics on how my tank is progressing. The lights are working well and corals continue to grow and color up. I ran out of room so I added some new rock as you can see by the color difference.

Sorry if this info is posted somewhere and I just overlooked it (I did try to look but came up empty), what lights are these new ones? Thanks!

I installed new Mirage x200 lights from LedZeal. I got to design the setup and spectrums. They are fully controllable with four channels. All in, including shipping was less than one radion.

cool.

would you think 3 of those would light a 96" x 36w x 24h?

and what changes did you make from the default set up and why?

I would say that you would be better to go with more of them. I have them straight up the center and my tank is 84"L x 28"w x 26"D and as my corals grow large I imagine I will need to add a strip (maybe orphek) or t5 up the sides. In your situation I would say to look at 4 of them set diagonally which would cover the extra width and the length. An extra slave unit was about $235USD. They are also introducing the new X300 which is 36"long and more wattage. I don't know pricing.
As for my changes, I felt the original was a little too windex like. They now have a pre-made "super blue" option which has been popular and it mirrors the Radion G5 blue for look. I have attached what I did in this pic. In hindsight I think I would replace the reds with two Royal Blue as I get enough red in my low K whites.

Hey,

It's been a couple months, any more thoughts on the new lights?
Is your layout the same as the "G5" premade, or how is yours different?
