Hey all, I just purchased an a80 to light my fluval evo 13.5 tank. Was thinking of just for softies and maybe lps. Would adding another a80 down the road be sufficient for growing any LPs and some montipora? It’s hard to find par spread diagrams on these and I’m just curious what the par and spread could look like with two of these lights. Currently running it at 100% intensity and at 50% color. Thanks everyone.

Switched from a Fluval Marine 3.0 to the Kessil A80 a couple of weeks ago and it seems to be sufficient, but I'm only 6mo into this. Interested in other's experience here as I'd be fine adding a second A80 if it would be better.

Like the last guy said, I try to keep it closer to the water's surface.

This is pretty much how mine is set up at the moment. I’m only planning softies and maybe some lps in this tank so I’m not very invested in adding another unless I have to.
