Update and feedback on lighting upgrade from 6x Euroquatics A1P to 7x Radion G5 Blues.
It's been a week since the install, no real changes to corals (exactly what I was hoping).
I ended up removing the diffuser since at 15" above water, the color blending was fine and showed no difference, other than lost of PAR by about 5% 8"below surface.
Power consumption was significantly more by about 20%. I had to run the Radions at a higher intensity to match my previous lights, which stinks, but on a positive, PAR spread across the tank is much better.
For a unit called "BLUE", the color is very white and not what I expected. It took some time getting use to, but I am okay with it now.
The issue now is that the light is blinding across the room since I have the lights mounted at 15". I could lower it, but then it becomes a pain to work inside my tank. Now, I need to figure out some type of pully system that I can raise and lower it easily.
And my biggest pet peeve is how loud the fan is when it kicks on at 100%, but they don't run long since it just cools down the heat sink enough the cuts off again.
