hey I know this is for nano tanks but I am moving all too my coral to my 75 gallon normal tank dimension 48 1/2 x 18 1/2 x 21 3/8 on l,w,h

I am upgrading the lighting on that tank to leds 

will mainly be softies and lps

will two echo tech radions xr15 cut it for the tank ?

Those lights have a recommended coverage of 18x18.

 

With that being said, if you’re just keeping softies and lps, and aren’t going to have much in the edges, than I’m sure they’d be plenty of light for your needs. If you aren’t set on Radions, there are lots of other lights that are terrific that would fit your needs, and not be $900.

A Maxspect Razor 300W would be $900, and would more than cover you're tank.  You could probably get by with a Razor 200W for $600.

I don’t think 2 xr15s would cover the tank.  I have 4 on my 48” and just 2 would have a ton of empty space.  I would honestly just go with a T5 setup if you don’t want sps or you could do the 2 xr15s and add the T5 aquatic life hybrid setup.

Many options other than radion.

 

 

 

What about 2 Chinese boxes? That will cover the dimensions and cost less, which means more money for corals😁

You can mount them which ever way you prefer as long as they are not completely enclosed.

 

 

What's the purpose of the extra carbon?
