Welcome to R2R, I’m jealous, I just set up my 25 gallon lagoon and love it, wish I could have done the 50 but not enough room, looks awesome :)

Hello fellow reefers,
I’m pretty here at R2R. I just want to share my AIO IM 50 set up. It’s been running for little over a year however I have my own experience of ups and downs. Anyway I am still learning on this hobby so this is great place to reach out for some advice.

Nice looking lagoon, I’ve got the same tank. What settings and intensity are you running your Radions at? I just have one. It looks like you’ve got a little bit of everything in there and it all looks pretty happy.

Thanks, I’m using ab+ at 40% intensity. It’s more LPS with few sps. 2 radion xr15 g4 pro. I been debating of adding aquatic T5 hybrid.

Thanks, are you using the ab+ lps/softies mode or the sps mode? A hybrid fixture would be great but I’m not comfortable hanging anything from my ceiling. Been debating selling my Radion and using two prime16’s instead.

Ab+ sps (started at 10% intensity until 40%) I myself is not comfortable hanging the lights. I’m thinking of using the kessil mount arm to hang the T5 hybrid. Not sure thought If can handle the pressure. I wanna hear your thoughts about the idea.

Looking at the mounting arm I’m not sure how that would work with a hybrid fixture. I’d need to see it first. Have you seen a build with that setup?

I haven’t seen a set up like that yet but I did see it on BRS tv on Thomas background tank when he does his weekly presentation. I understand that it’s made for AP700. I haven’t done a search yet on the lighting section.

I need to get a second light and do this same thing. Are you running without a screen top? its hard to tell from this picture. My fish would all be on the floor without one.
I’m running it without screen top. 7 fish total. 1 yellow tang, 1 blue tang, pair of clown, 1 six line, 1 green chromis, and 1 yellow tail damsel. I have them all for 1 year and half except the yellow tang which is four months. They all been getting along so I don’t see any chasing.

My zebra dartfish splashed water out of the tank three times in 5 minutes tonight. No way my fish stay in the tank without a screen top. I wish they would because I don’t like the look of the screen. Good on ya if yours don’t jump or get spooked.
