3-4 Satellite Plus in a 125 Gallon

Hi. I have a 125 gallon planted tank. I already have two 36" Current Satellite Plus running, and I love the look but I am thinking of adding another one on each side to increase the output.

Does anyone run two of these on the same side / across their tank? Does it make much difference in terms of output? I have a 21" deep tank (with pressurized CO2) and I would like to get HC and DHG to carpet. They are growing okay on a very sloped hill, but did not do so well near the bottom end of the tank when I first started this tank about a month ago. I am worried that while it will increase out significantly at the upper levels of the tank, it still won't produce high light toward the lower levels/foreground of my tank.

Have others had luck getting HC and DHG to carpet in a 21" tank? Should I just be more patient and work on my other parameters?

Any thoughts would be appreciated... Thanks.

Hey Tributary,

To be honest, if you want penetration, the E-series will be best for you. The smaller LEDs on the satellite are great for spread but not as good as the E-series for depth.

Thanks... just in time for me to successfully cancel my order. I'll consider the E-series...
