I'm very interested in LED lighting and had my eye on a few units, with the Ecotech Radion at the top of the list. However, I've recently read some articles that really trash this light saying it has a bad spectrum, poor PUR and poor penetration for deeper tanks like mine (30 inches). I really like some of the features of this light with the wireless control, software, lighting effects/gimmicks (lunar cycles, storm mode, etc) as well as their integration with the vortech pumps which also seem pretty "cool".
Basically, I would like to get peoples experiences with this light as well as ANY other suggestions for a light to suit my purposes. I would like to be able to grow any coral within reason although I will certainly take it slow. I would also like some control over the flourescene of the coral and/or light spectrum through dimers, controllers or timers similar to what the Ecotech Radion can offer. It seems maybe LED lights are the only real option to create these effects?
Thanks so much for reading and I look forward to replies from the experts on this message board
