    All Radions installed and programmed. 2xR15s and an XR30. All Gen 3s. Tank looks better and brighter with the XR30 replacing an XR15 in the middle.

    Cheers, I already have it on 10k but the ISO was far too high it bleached the colours out. Turned it down to 50 looks far better. t

    Swapped out my 2 Radions XR15 gen 3 pros for 2 XR39 gen 3 pros to reduce shading. I also replaced my Aqua Medic kalk stirrer
    for a Deltec one as The AM one wouldn't quite fit in the sump cabinet but the Deltec does.

    Nope.The colours under the Rads are better than I could get with the Hydras. The Hydras weren't HD and my Rads are the pros. Don't get me wrong the Hydras are good lights and I am sure the HDs give better colour but these Rad pro 3s are better and the tank looks better under them. I will see how they perform over the coming months.

    i love my radions.

    as you say. the corals just pop

    have u seen that latest study showing how ramping up and down over 6hrs can increase growth and colours.
