I used to have a radion they are worth the money I have a vertex 48" fixture that I like better. I would get either a radion, reeftech, or my favorite is vertex. The reeftec lighting strikes look like a strobe light radion does a Much better job

You are gonna spend HOURS messing with the programming! me and my LFS spent hours just playing with his and we hardly went into hardcore programming. lol

have fun!

have you thought of hanging with something like this?

Current Hanging Arm Lighting Assembly, Aquarium Lighting Power | PetSolutions

I bought it to hang my LED fixture over my 60g rimless, I too have vaulted ceilings so I am pretty much screwed if I wanna hang lights.

I have a radion as well. To be honest, I put it in Natural mode, set the sunrise and sunset to mimic the great barrier reef, and that's it. Though I did start at 60% intensity and go up 10% weekly for four weeks. I think it's great.

I upgraded from a 4-bulb AquaticLife T5 with ATI bulbs and the difference is huge.

They also work with my MP10's which I like.

I believe guiessman has some wall hangers that work with the hanging kit.

I'm thinking about switching to "Artificial" mode, which is manual programming because now my lights ramp up from 6:30a till 2pm and then ramp back down. They are only at MAX for a few minutes.

Mrsaltwatertank has a good starting point for manual programming.

Those arms would do the job prob...but pricey. After spending so much on lighting, and still need another one, I'm looking into cheaper options. If I come across a clothing rack somewhere I'm totally going to strip it down for use.

I don't think that it syncs with the "storm mode" yet. It does sync with feeding mode and night mode.
