If you have enough 16s to cover the whole tank, I'd probably use those. If not, no issue mixing them for better coverage.

The Reefer 250 Deluxe seems to come with 2 of the 90s if what I read on BRS is correct.
I’m an ai guy but I would go with the reef leds if they’re 90 watts. The prime 16s are only 54 watts maxed out. I have a prime 16 over a 7 gallon side frag tank and it barely produces enough par for sps in there.

I have 3 ReefLED 90's and I'm really happy with them. I'm trying to figure out exactly how much blue/white balance I want.

Wait.. you can't program them to where they have a blue phase and a 'full spectrum' phase of the photoperiod?
