I'll go with 3 x XR 30. Instead of putting them in straight line, I'll put it vertically.
I was thinking on that option but when putting out the position of the fixtures in way of the tank dimensions it seems like the outsides might get shadowing.
So I came up with other options... less economical ones
you can add some t5's on the sides to fill in the shadows. seems like led+t5 is very popular.
6 x XR 15 work also. About the same price for 3 x XR30.
I absolutely love my XR15PRO’s if you add T5’s you will have a solid let set up , little sneak peak of mine with 4x54w T5’s and two XR15PRO’s G4’s
Lots of light output hands down !
Some update for the Tank
1. Have remove most of the Chromis, now left with 4 in the tank, stock list as follow
- 4 x chromis
- 2 x Blue Eye Cardinal
- 1 x ABT
- 1 x Banggai Cardinal
- 1 x Tiger Goby
-1 x PBT
Planing to add some Anthias provided I can catch out all the chromis
2. Change the skimmer to Nyos 220
Some pic update
I liked the chromis... nice skimmer upgrade.
Will be necessary with the anthias. Smart move.
Tank looks amazing! What is the light schedule/spectrum you are running on the G4's?
Love the skimmer. Looking to add some Dispar or Blue eyes
Thank, I using AB+, running at 85%
How high did you mount the lights from the water ?
I mount it about 13" above water level
From Mar 17 FTS
Jan 18 FTS
That is some serious coral investment
Those are lyretail anthias waiting to get in the DT?
Yes, still looking for a male Lyretail.
Just realized you upgraded the Skimmer ! What made you go with Nyos over another’s ? Was your Deltec loud ?
Is kind of loud if u compare with Nyos, the build is not as solid as the Noys also.
I still like the old Deltec, the AP701 with the ehiem pump.
That’s good to know , I have looked at the Nyos 160 as well as a replacement for my Tunze 9410 Skimmer if I am not happy with it once my build gets going .
Do not look for a male. From the group you have one dominant female will make the transition to a male.
It is wonderful to see how the fins develop and colours change.
There are 2 kinds of lyretails. The Fiji and the Maldives ones. Both kind of males develop crazy colour.
