Thank you for the information.

This tank will be in my office very close to my desk so I can't have it clicking away all day. Looks like I'll have to go a different route.

Thank you for the reply.

I am somewhat nervous about the coverage of the xr15. At 300 bucks a pop buying 3 would really make my wife kill me.

Excellent. After looking at the recent pictures of your tank its clear they are very happy with the halos. The only thing I'm confused about is the deluxe vs the regular? Which did you get.

Kessil Tuna Sun vs Ecotech xr15fw

I am going to be setting up a 48" long tank once I fix it. Would it be better to go with 2 x Tuna Sun or 2 x xr15fw. I've seen the xr15 over a reef and it had a very severe disco effect (probably...

Not to hijack but will that work with an aquatek regulator? I was thinking of buying the aquarium plants carbon doser but this would be a cheaper fix.

I am probably going to add it slowly considering the hole is very small I don't think it will effect the parameters very much. I'll probably give it a week just to let everything...
