I am starting a new 60 gallon cube reef and I am having trouble deciding what LEDs to get because of my rockscape. As you can see from the picture the top rock is basically the size of a dinner plate and I am concerned with the size of the LED units (basically being the same width as the rock) this will block much of the light. I understand directly under the overhang(s) there will be a shadow I just dont want the top rock to cast a shadow over the entire bottom of the tank. I know I can hang the light higher but, then I am afraid I will lose the penetration.
I will be running 2 MP10w ES and right now the front runner is the Radion because I like the fact it can sync with the pumps and the colors options rather than just blue and white. This will be predominantly SPS with a few clams on the bottom (Deresa, Maxima)
Should this even be a concern?
