A friend went to XR15 Pros versus the XR30's to get even lighting on his 5' x 30" x 27" tall tank. He installed six of them and it is a SPS tank.
I know itís maybe not going to be the look I want or I am used to but I have to try something. The evaporation alone is a killer. I have the perfect scenario for a high electric bill. I kill a dehumidifier about once a year as well. When they die Iíll come into the offer and have water dripping off the electrical panel. It is far too big of a tank for the office space I use but itís hard to go back now lol.

If 6 g5 xr30 isnít enough I can always run a 3rd row in the middle. Iíll also be keeping my mag ballasts and radiums in case I end up not liking led.
