So Im finishing up gathering all the equipment for my upcoming Waterbox 220.6 build. My question is would 4 XR15s paired with an aquatic life t5 hybrid going to be enough for a 6 foot by almost 2 foot tank. I plan on doing a mixed reef with sps towards the top. I feel like I should be fine but I just want some others input on the matter just for peace of mind.

Yes, four XR15s with the T5 hybrid should be more than sufficient. I have a pair of XR30s and a single XR15 on my 71" tank (no T5 hybrids) and it's more than enough for my mixed reef (mostly LPS, soft and some SPS).

I have the same setup on my WB220.6. How do you have yours spaced out? I do have a 61" T5 fixture coming to make a Hybrid kit.
