Did you think about adding a Kessil 360 between those 2 fixtures? Might give you the reds you're looking for.

Those Radions are nice, but I think they lack the PAR for 18" deep tanks.

The BioTek is $195; PC and Mac compatible, logs your PAR values in a given session. To me it's the best value.

From what I've seen it does not output enough PAR especially for 18" aquariums; this is really designed for aquarium 12" deep.
