Not very hot at all. Not hot enough for me to even give this much of a consideration.

I'm planning a 40b tank, and seriously considering this light. Does anyone know from experience if this light provides a true 36" footprint? Or would 2 lights be necessary for good coverage in a 36"? Thanks so much!

Thanks so much! My plan is to have one edge of the tank be sand and less planted, so 1 may do it. Was gonna get 2 Halos, but my mind is changed. I live close to ThatFishPlace in PA, and they have a good price along with in store coupons. Thought I'd have to blow $700 on the Halos, but I may get better lighting for under $400 including mount.

I assume the xr30 version will be coming out for freshwater since they sent you one. Did they give you any idea of when? I emailed Ecotech asking for info, but I haven't gotten a response.

Actually, I'm not sure this is the case. The one they sent me was an extra custom build for a corporate customer.

Gotcha. Thanks. If it was an imminent release, I'd wait on it. Guess I'll move forward with the xr15's.

As an update, Ecotech responded to me and said they will not be releasing an xr30 for freshwater at this time.

Not surprising .. $300 plus FW leds are a hard sell as is.
XR30 at whatever is both overkill (better just 2 xr15's geometrically speaking) and expensive..
