Ive been trying to decide on some lights for the last 3 months now and I've narrowed it down to these 2

I've seen amazing tanks with each of these lights over them

 

if you guys could help me make this decision a little easier that would be great

 

some pros and cons please

Box that sheeeeet man. Customization. Better customer service. Better looking. Depending on your tank size, prolly helluva lot cheaper too. Also, everyone will love your thread if it has nanobox in it ;)

I have a 36" that Dave did for me and have zero regrets. I've just set up a smaller Mr Aqua cube at work and have another on the way! omgomgomg

Both are good options. I know some people hate on ecotech sometimes (me included), but their product is cool and I like the ability to make elaborate programs with it. The nanoboxs are also really good fixtures, likely will have better LEDs (I am told), are cheaper, and can get you to the same end result as the radion.

Nanobox, support the small entrepreneur.

 

Pro:

 

Dave can do about anything you ask with the light set.

 

Con:

 

Custom takes time,

I have 2 nanobox units, duo & tide. No regrets here and Dave has awesome customer service. Plus you can customize the nanobox to your liking right down to the paint.

I went with a duo 24 for my PicO. Should get it in a couple days. Dave has been a pleasure to work with and does a good job of keeping me updated. Nothing against "the other light" but being able to correspond with the manufacturer directly is nice.

Both points are true..

 

While I don't own a Nano-Box unit, I did have Dave do a retro-fit in my BC29 hood and I couldn't be more pleased. I saw more colors than with my old MH/PC combo and I can keep SPS, LPS, Softies, you name it.

Nano box.

 

Between led selection, customization, customer service, and cost. Dave has radion beat nine ways to Sunday. The only con with Dave's fixtures is wait time because everything is BTO.

I've had Dave build me a tide fixture, and the wait sucked but the product was second to none. Oh, and I also have a G3 which I love too

Yeah I have a nanobox mini and its great in all aspects. I went with a plain white one but the customization he can do is really incredible and sets him apart from everyone else. I am pretty sure I am going to use 2 duals on a 80 gallon tank (if the wife lets me set it up lol).

I've no experience with Radion, but since I got my Nano Box Mini Tide, my corals are growing nicely, the tank looks great, my hair is thicker, I smell better, and I have gotten more dates with beautiful women than I ever did before!

I just went through the same decision really. Dave did a custom T5 LED Hybrid for my new tank build. The service has been awesome!

I ordered a pair of duos for my new 90g I'm setting up and I can't wait to get home from vacation because they arrived while I was gone, I also have a 12in beam that I will be running over my display fuge. As they said with customization, Dave was able to wire all 3 lights to the same control box and all 3 will be powered by 1 power cord which is freaking awesome.
