Thanks for the info on the prime, I'm considering it for a 12" cube reef. With your tank being a 27 gallon cube, I'm assuming it's 18" square? If so, you may need 2-24/7's depending how techy your setup is going be. Low tech/light, I think one would be just fine. High tech/light/carpet plants, May need 2 fixtures for optimal light coverage at the substrate. Good thing is you can dim it so too much light shouldn't be a problem, even with 2 lights. OR, you could supliment your prime with a cooler white stunner strip or something for aesthetic purposes. Also on second thought, if your tank is 18" cube, I believe the shortest 24/7 fixture is 24" so that may have to be taken into consideration but for price and quality and results, IMO nothing beats finnex. If price is no concern, maybe look into buildmyled.com, a sponser here. One fixture will run you at least 2x the price of the finnex but great lights if you don't mind the price.
