Not the first one, its only 30watts in comparison to the second at 180watts.

Three run at 50% maybe 14” from the surface. 3 gives a better “colour” mixing in this light type.
Two run at 100% maybe 20-24” off surface.

They push a ton of PAR, (and cab fry stuff) start at 20% and then move upwards semi-monthly, fined where the colour looks good to you and stop.

Try to never adjust height after setting.

Just based off the specs I can see I would say a lot.

I would look more along the lines of 2 of something like this:

so 2 would grow sps and lps? I woud keep sps at the top. Also does it have a mount besides hanging? It will be in my living room where the ceiling is high.

I use the Visparspectra 165watt, it comes with hanging kit, hangs from the ceiling.

if your looking for hang on type, look at Nicrew Hypereef 150, the arm is separate I think.

Very simple light, needs a simple on/off timer and has 6 settings of intensity for blue and whites.

In the above pics, that light is in the middle.

I would absolutely NOT recommend that light. It uses 60 degree lenses and will spotlight each color on its own. This will both cook your inhabitants and cause some serious disco ball effect. I would get something with 120 degree lenses if possible. Look at the Viparspectra lights if you are going with this style.

The Nicrew Hyper Reef 150 would be great, but it also does not have a tank mount. You would want the Hyper Reef 100. I would get 4 for a 6ft tank.

ok. so it could grow sps?
It should. I have the 100W version over my 40b and have a mixed reef. Unfortunately, I only added SPS 2 weeks ago, so it is still too early to know how they will do. My Cyphastreas, however, were encrusting onto the frag rack after only 2 weeks.
