Hello all,
I’m new to the hobby, I have a Fijicube 38 gallon peninsula with two 24” orbit marine led lights and want to upgrade the lighting that’s appropriate for a mixed reef system that will support some SPS corals. Currently I have some LPS and soft corals but want to make sure whatever I upgrade to is sufficient without having to spend more money later. My thoughts for the upgrade lighting would be the following:
(2) Radion XR15 or (1) XR30
(2) Kessill A80 or (1) 360
(2) Al Prime 16 or (1) AI Hydra 32

The tank lighting measurements would be 30x16 not including the built in sump area. Any suggestions would be appreciated as I only want to do this once, want to make sure I purchase the right light. If there is something else you would recommend please feel free to let me know.

thanks

Picking any of the 2 would be slightly better, in terms of spread, compared to the single fixture.

For the Kessils, you would want 2 of the 160s instead of A80s. The A 80s are only 15 watts and are for pico tanks.
 

Would you consider your aquarium water to be "Crystal Clear?"
