With it only being 32" wide another radion would be overkill and spacing may be an issue giving too much overlap and hot spots. I run mine at 60% and even then I've bleached a couple sps.
I'm actually snooping around the classifieds and someone is selling an XR15 reef brite add on....that would probably do it.

Tell her the negative news first then follow up with some sort of good news! It might lessen the blow but honestly women pick that up right away so shes gonna be mad but hopefully not as mad lol! And try and slide it in during a good convo! Dont bring it up awkwardly lol! Best i can i do lol! Good luck and enjoy!!! ;)
How much you spending on Lobster Larry ????....there is no 'sliding that in' lol....I'd be murdered.

Great advice that reminds us why 50% of marriages fail...

This is much better advice. Instead, don't scrape the glass or remove algae from the tank for awhile and tell her it looks like garbage because you need "x, y, z". Then once you've received the items you want, clean that sucker spick and span and you'll be good to go.





What was the first thing I said, again?

Dude, I’m divorced so no advice there. No rush on the lights. If you did like I did you’ll spend more on the lights than that deal of a tank. I’m still trying to figure out my plan, but have basically settled on hybrid T5 and kessil.

I'm def. leaning towards maybe adding some reefbrites to an XR30 or some sort of hybrid system. Still trying to plan where it's going to go.

In all honesty, I got lucky to have a wife that is into animals. She used to work at a pet shop. We have had all sorts of critters, ferrets, lizards, snakes, cats, and currently have 3 great danes. I bought the 13.5 evo and it was her idea to get the 120. All I said was if we are going to do it I want it done right with the best equipment so I can never blame failure on that! So as long as I have a legit reason for needing something new she never questions it.
