Had to decide how many lights I'm using before I build the bracket to hang them

Without the wood shadow and a couple inches higher seems like it would have decent coverage, what levels did you have the light set at in that pic? It's always nice to keep a little extra in reserve if you end up needing it.

I have a couple more led fixtures , adding another wouldn't be a big deal. My main concern is having it bright enough for corals. The pic really is quite different than how it appears to the naked eye

From that side it does look a little shaded here and there, if you have more lights available then by all means use them, always better to have more than you need than not enough

This is an awsome tank build. Love the overflow though the wall.

Just put in a swc 160 skimmer, pump died out in 5 seconds and went to take the skimmer out of the sump and got a big electric shock, effing piece of crap.
