60x36x24 What lights? How many?

Radion, AI or Kessils? Could I get away with just 2?

With two fixtures you should be ok, but the sides or some part of the tank will have less light than the centers of the lighting. On the other hand, 3 seems to be too much. lol Maybe if you get a light with optics so it has a good spread? Or you could hang them up just a tad higher to get the spread you'll need. You are looking at quality fixtures which you most likely wouldnt run at full anyways so bringing the fixture higher up could be the solution.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

The type would just be my preference? I am leaning towards the AI Hydra. Anybody have any thoughts?

I would also vote for the AI's. Alot cheaper than the radions and just as good in my opinion. the kessils I'm not terribly familiar with but I would think youd need more of them as they are single type units. But yeah, the Hydras are great fixtures for the price no doubt about it.
