Which finnex?

Don't think it's any secret that the finnex tends to put out more PAR than comparable Sat+ fixtures. Then again the finnex isn't as customizable in terms of light settings and I don't think they have reds.

Price is also a factor. Usually the Sat+ is cheaper.

Haven't owned both but did quite a bit of research into it and chose a Sat+ myself since I was going for a lower tech tank anyways. Plenty of happy people who use either one if you look around.

Both come from great companies and each fill a niche as both provide different levels of lighting. First find out what kind of lighting you are looking for you. You can head over to Current USA's sub forum if you have questions about their products as they appear very good at getting back to their users concerns or PM me about Finnex products.
