Well, if you are really particular about how your corals look, that is even more reason to consider these lights.Well crap, I sat down today to place my order for a pair of G4 pro lights and ran across this thread. Now I dont know what to do lol. My biggest issue is my crrent location does not have a lot of saltwater stores. The one good LFS runs Radion's and I fell in love with the look. It seems from Dana's research that the reefi's provide good spectrum for growth. But the hardest part to tell from pictures is the cosmetic pop you get from radions. Some of my concerns
- Do these provide that beautiful pop you get in fish and corals with a radion? Or are they more geared towards growth only?
- I see they have a 3 year warranty which is amazing but I have been in enthusiast forums of all types for 20 years and you will occasional see the superior product that is amazing but goes out of business and you loose support. Ecotech is probably not going anywhere soon.
- The last thing is radions are backed by years of use and research with proven results. These are fairly new.
I am getting ready to spend the most I have ever spent on my reef in 5 years upgrading my blackboxes so I am hesitant but these really look to be truly amazing lights. I love the reflectors, simplicity of the app, and I am bit biased because I am a military displaced Oregonian that grew up in the PNW
They have 9 individually adjustable channels, so you can customize your spectrum exactly the way you want it.
I can say that they really make my coral colors pop. See my pictures earlier in this thread.
You can see a recent video of the Reefi lights over a tank here:
This user recently replaced his Radions with Reefis, and talks about the advantages of the Reefis over the Radions at around minute 13 of the video.
I’ve had mine since April and my corals are growing very well under them.
Finally, the support that I have gotten from ReeFi is top notch. You can do a quick search of threads here to see how Ecotech compares, support-wise. Daniel and ReeFi have been around for nearly 4 yrs already and his lights are really starting to increase in popularity. I will be shocked if he isn't still making these lights 5 years from now.
