Yeah, I would just get the power heads Crister. Probably be more beneficial to your tank, than the Radions. As long as you already have sufficient lighting. After all, it's still just a light source. Cool as they are!
I've accepted the fact that I'll have to win the lottery to put Radions and Ecotech MP's on my tank!!

If I needed more than 1 light fixture I probably wouldn't have bought Radion. It's not that I couldn't afford it. It's justifying the price. SOL's aren't as fancy but they're much more cost effective. Think about $400 per fixture

Sniperhank was right about the intensity of these Radions. After Nearly losing an expensive chunk of Hydnophora Coral, I decided to decrease the intensity of my lighting. I'm at 18% intensity and my tank has never looked better. My Hydnophora is making a comeback and even my Maxima Clam is looking better than ever. I never would have believed the 58% I had it on before was actually detrimental to my tank

I must be doing something wrong then lol. Mine are at a max of 75% intensity. Things are looking great and coraline is spreading faster than I've ever seen on some base rock. Maybe I shoul dturn them down a bit and see? Most of my frags and corals were purchased from LFSs who used 250w MH at a height of 8-12" above a frag tank.
