e-serie on 90p?

Anyone running e-serie on 90p? Would one 36" fixture provide good coverage for this tank? thanks.

Just bought a 36'' for my 90p (same dimensions). I'll send you my feedback hopefully next week.

I'm considering the same. Not much info out there ATM, but I'm looking at 2 fixtures over a 90P for high-light plants.

2x 36" on 90p

Just placed two 36" E-series using the ecoxotic dual hanging kit. Kit works great. Balancing out the cords so it hangs straight was the most difficult part of the set up. Unfortunately, my co2 died at the same time, so I have a bit of a bloom, but nothing a couple of dark days won't fix. Just got a new bottle of co2. Will let you know how it goes. My only concern is the amount of light that is reflected on the walls and the ground as the spread is fairly wide. My older t5 had a more narrow focus that I enjoy as it accentuated the tank only.

^^ You might try DIYing the pair into a light hood of some sort of control the light spill from the front.

As to the OP, there's no reason why 36" E-Series or Sat+ Pro wouldn't work well on a 90P, as long as the PAR meets your needs. You might need two, as greenman did, in order to get full coverage, since the focus of an individual light is actually somewhat narrow.
