Who makes a 72 inch LED fixture?

I have a 180 gallon and want to switch from my MH to LEDs. I sold all oft hard coral and high lighting corals and am keeping my softies. I want the ability to keep hard corals again in the future so what LEDs should I use.

I have a 210 gallon with three radions gen 2 on it. I love these lights! I have only had them for a week so I cant say how well the corals grow under them yet. But I do not have any shaded spots and the light is very easily reaching the bottom. The only negative thing I can say is I had problems programming the lights because their website was having issues. So I had them on manual lights until the website was working good the next day.

Yeah but $650 a fixture is a little steep for me haha. I bought the coralife elite MH fixture about 7 years ago and would have to sell it first anyway.

I have used aqua illumination Vegas on a 75 gallon. They are pretty good but it didnt have as good of a spread as the radions do.

Oh and i will mention this about the vegas. The red and green lights looked funny to me so I never used those colors. So If I remember correctly you can buy them with outthe red and green and they are cheaper.

It says each fixture has a 2 ft by 2 ft spread so I would say three. The only thing i noticed on my 75 was a little shadowing near the braces at the top of the tank. My daughter has the Sol super blue and loves them on her takl

RapidLED has a 180 gallon kit for $900. It requires a bit of assembly but I love the end result on mine.
