Lighting

Kessil, aqua illumination sol blue, rapid led DIY kits, or any other suggestions that might get me out of this 3 way tie with lights. Anything helps

I'm looking into the rapid led diy kits for my 75 gl fowlr soon to be soft coral reef . I already have a 216w t5 fixture I will be adding the diy kit . I have read a lot of good reviews for the 24 led dimming kit I want .

I was looking in to Apollo LEDs. Would you still recommend them? I saw this thread is a bit old so I hope no one minds me jumping in. I was thinking 3 of the cube light 36 watt over a 75 gallon. Would this work?

So you must live near Nepa u will only need one or two for a 36" 75 gallon tank I have an oceanic 75 gallon that is 36 long and 24 high and one is perfect I also have no cross bar in the top so there is no shadows but one leaves ample amount of room on each side for soft corals... I would go with one Apollo if u don't have the bar on top and then 2 if u have the bar but why spend 350 on two apollos when u have get the ecotech raddions For the price of 2 apollos

I was looking at a 48" long 75 gallon, I haven't seen any 36" long. Which fixtures do you have? To get the coverage I would need the only option I saw was the 3 small ones, it would be about $400. Do they require a controller too?

I have read a bit about the taotronics being loud, I may go with the Apollo lights. do you know which fixture you have on your tank? I could probably do 2 by the time my new build gets to that point. I like the fact that you seem to like them and have good growth.
