I have 3 AI's in use over my 180. I have two 26's on the outside of an AI 32. When the 26's decide to no longer work then they will be replaced with 32's. I do have one 32 backup! Probably should look for another.

Thank you @Sleeping Giant for the QOTD idea!

One piece of equipment that 99.9% of every saltwater reef aquarium hobbyist uses is LIGHTS! It's also no secret that the majority of reefers now choose LED lighting over other types of lighting. (not saying other types are not good options) But how many lights we have and what brand we are using are left up to our specific needs and taste! So let's light it up with some comments today!

I have a Waterbox FRAG 105.4: 48" x 24" x 16". I run two Kessil AP9X panels over an SPS dominant mixed reef. The tank is about 18 months old and is "officially" moved from stocking mode to grow-out mode.

Using 4 ATI Stratton and 3 Kessils A360X lights over a 8 foot 365G Reef Aqaurium. Verdict is till out on the Stratton lights - seem to be heavy on the white side - thank goodness I could tune themdown and also use the Kessils to crackup the blue.
