I have a 165W black box (actually don't know the brand, got it from another reefer who said "it was the best around 2014"). My first corals (LPS and Zoa) are doing great and...

    4 x G5 XR15 or 8 x PRIME 16HD for 120G SPS Tank?

    Just watched “BRS Investigates”. Just asking... How many of you would consider 8 x PRIME 16HD (440W) over 4 x G5 XR15 (420W) on 120G (4’x2’x2’) SPS dominated tank? 8 PRIME costs a tad more than 4 XR15, worth it? Thanks!
