I'd want another mp40 on there if it was my tank.

I wouldn't use different lighting unless you totally changed out the entire tank. In other words, putting a AI Hydra in between those Kessils will look odd. If you like the Kessils, I would use three A350w Tuna Blue over that tank.

I think two Kessil 360s would be great on your tank but that is a pretty significant investment. I would still keep your 150s on. I know a guy with a 72g mostly SPS tank that uses two Kessil 360s on that size tank. As you likely know, the 360s are all adjustable between blue and white light whereas the early 150s are not. As far as flow, I have two MP 40s and two sicce voyagers on my 220g, which together with the system pump flow produces plenty of flow. Have you considered the new maxspect gyre instead of another mp40? I've been considering replacing the two sicces with one of those.

But this is a 5' tank. If you are referring to a 72 bow, then it's only 4'. If you like sps, I'd go with 3.

Ok so an Mp40. Maybe I will wait a little on the lighting. My neighbor is moving next week. He has a 300 gallon reef and he sold the house with the tank. He told me he has some extra toys he doesn't want that he will contribute to my tank I just hope the people moving in know how to take care of that tank

I have heard they require the lighting and the water flow. Which I don't think i have enough at this point

I love the way those Hydras look. I love the way the Scotch Radions look. But they cost so much more than the Kessil
