Anyone try out this light pn a Fluval Evo 13.5? Would it go e complete coverage or would the peninsula style mean there would be darker spots on the sides?

I've seen a lot of posts of this light on the IM cubes, and looks promising, but curious how it will do on a peninsula.

My current lights are budget bars with pretty good LED chips:


But, I am noticing that my corals generally do well, but only seen growth on my blastos and alveopora, not on my acans, torch, scoly, zoas, or mushrooms. Maybe time for a light upgrade?

Maybe - but your PAR levels really aren't high enough for most SPS (needing somewhere in the 200-300 range, typically around 250-275 PAR).
No plans for SPS in this tank. Potato chip pavone or *maybe* a stylo or digi on the top rock one day.

I got the light so we'll see how it works one day when it arrives!

I own the K7 mini, and I like it. I have it on my 45g tank(48in x 18in x 12in tall). I have some sps in there and they seemed to be doing ok so far.
 

How do I get smarter in the hobby?
