I’m in the process of ordering a new tank setup. I’m ordering a Planet Mega Matrix 180 gallon 72”x24”x24” and plan this to be SPS dominant.

I am wanting to go T5 hybrid and have two questions.

Should I use a single 61” hybrid light or two 36”?

The light(s) will hold 4 led lights. Would you recommend 4 AI Hydra 32 or AI hydra 64?

I am also up for suggestions on other alternatives.

I would go with two 36" T5 units.

I don't have any experience with the AI Hydras, so I'll leave that for someone else.

Thank you. I was kind of leaning this route. Definitely have enough room in the canopy for either route.
