Hi R2R family:


My next reef tank, it will be a NANO (20inx20inx20in), my question is if a RADION xr15 g4, it will be enough for sps corals, lps and soft corals. I hope you can help me! or give me some feedback, thank you! :)

The recommended spread for an xr15 is 18x18 but you may get some shadowing near the edges.

I think the xr-15 should work great for you. I have a 60g (24x24x24) cube and I'm current running a gen 3 Radion xr-15. I'm about to start diving into SPS but I have been keeping LPS and softies successfully for a couple of years (and im only running my light at 50% intensity). I'm gonna rent a par meter in the next couple weeks to test my Radion before adding sps.

Radions are very powerful. If you do a little research you'll find most don't exceed 65% intensity and even then many bleach their corals after first installing the light as the underestimate how powerful it actually is
