Hi everybody. My 40 gallon breeder is up and cycling and I need to get a light. I was leaning toward some LED light, something that provides moderate lighting. I was wondering what would be some good ones to look at? Also, I was wondering if they’re are any models that will cover my 36”x18” footprint using a single unit? Thanks for any info.

I just picked up the Maxspect Razor-X R5 150 for my 40B and am really happy with it. There are three lights, it fits perfectly, can be mounted on the sides of the tank or suspended (kit sold separately). I also got the ICV6 to program and control the light settings and schedule from my phone.

I was originally thinking about just getting a single unit and putting on the back, just because of the way my overflow and return is plunged into my tank. but I just realized that two mounted on the side should work for me too.

LPS, softies? Are you on a budget?
Can do 2 AI primes.
I second this BRS has as couple videos on youtube you can check out. They give you height suggestion along with spectrum setting and par readings. Good starting point if you ask me. I think you may even be able to pull off a mixed reef with sps up higher.
