Product Questions

Can I put this light over a 20 gallon high tank that will have SPS corals and fish or is it too much lighting?
Question by: Sergei on Feb 2, 2014 8:41:00 AM
Hi Sergei,
You will want to use the lights programming to dim them down, but because you can scale the light to basically anywhere from 0 to 100% of its output it won't really ever be too bright because you can turn it down to whatever level you want.

Does this light fixture have a back up battery available to purchase through this website?
Question by: emili brown on Mar 29, 2016 6:34:00 AM
Great question!
These lights can run off of the ecotech battery back up. I have included the link below! Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions.

I have a red sea refer 250, Would I be ok with just 1 XR30w Pro? or will I need 2?
Question by: Stephen on Mar 29, 2016 2:16:00 PM
Great question!
The XR30 will have a spread of 30" x 24" and could work with slight shadowing towards the far edges of the tank. Ideally 2 of the XR15's would be able to spread the light optimally across the tank. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Mar 30, 2016 12:01:00 PM

I am setting a 120 Gal tank and I will like to put two of this Radion Pro on it. However the size of the tank is 48"x24"x24", do you guys think that two Radions will be ok for this tank?

Thank you

Question by: Daniel on Feb 18, 2014 4:14:00 AM
Hey Daniel,
It depends on the types of corals, placement, etc, but generally speaking 2 XR30w Pro's will be just fine on a tank that size.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Feb 18, 2014 4:14:00 AM

I have a 30"x30"x30" cube. Will 1 XR30 pro due?
Question by: David Bourassa on Apr 1, 2016 10:42:00 PM
Great questions! The XR30 Pro will have an area of 30" x 24" x30 in deep maximum. It would be a little less front to back for coverage and ideally be doubled up if possible. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Apr 5, 2016 5:05:00 PM
Tank size: 36X15x13, would one pro be enough?
Question by: Tony on Jul 4, 2016 2:45:00 PM
Thanks for the question.
The XR30 has a maximum spread of 30" and on a 36" long tank you will encounter very low light around the egdes as well as intense shadows. Two XR15's would be ideal for a 36" long tank allowing you to have much more control of where the light goes, and giving you more room to grow corals.
Answer by: Charlie (Admin) on Jul 7, 2016 8:33:00 AM
Hi guys,I have a 6 foot long 220 gallon reef tank and wasn't sure how many of these units you recommend? Also I already have the cheapy led's on there and wanted to see if I could just use one of these in the center to supplement what I already have..Thank you
Question by: Rich on Apr 3, 2016 1:39:00 PM
Great question!
The Radion XR30 will have a solid spread around 30" x 24". This would work well int he center of the tank for coral growth and cheaper LED's on the sides to keep the light spread even. Ideally around 2-3 units would work well depending on the spread of the light. If you are looking for high light throughout the tank 3 spread even will provide this, With 2 you can grow most corals with proper placement. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Apr 6, 2016 11:57:00 AM
I currently have a standard 75 gallon tank (18"L x 48"W x 21"H) that I'm planning on housing LPS corals and anemone. Would I be better off getting two xr30w pros and have overlapping light coverage, or two xr15? Thanks.
Question by: Chris on Jul 4, 2016 9:13:00 PM
All in all two Xr30 lights will give you much better results, allowing you to have greater control over the evenness of the light in the tank, and less shadows. For an LPS/Anemone tank two Xr15 lights will work since some LPS do like lower light or even shaded areas. The biggest issue comes with SPS and other corals that physically grow vertical and block light for corals underneath. The Xr30 lights will let you house and grow any type of coral, but if you are going to stick with LPS and Anemones then two Xr15s will be just fine.
If you have any other questions, just let us know.
Answer by: Charlie (Admin) on Jul 7, 2016 9:25:00 AM
hello, how long is the power cord that goes from the ballast to the radion? I didn't know about the ballast till I saw pictures and need to know if I have enough cord to hide them. thanks
Question by: charlie on Nov 4, 2015 10:41:00 AM
Great question!
The cord from the ballast to the Radion is 10 feet. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

what is the difference between xr30w g3 and xr30w g3 pro
Question by: Mike Skoblicki on Jan 31, 2016 5:36:00 AM
Great question!
I have included a short video we have made on this topic! Overall the Pro is designed for deeper tanks (24"+) they will feature additional 2 deep blue LEDs as well as new yellow LEDs for better PAR at the deeper levels. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Feb 10, 2016 3:27:00 PM
I'm setting up a 40gl breeder and was wondering how many of these items would need for good coverage of the tank?
Question by: Brian Garrett on May 14, 2016 2:51:00 PM
Great question!
The Radion will have a spread of 24" x 30" and one fixture could work great for coverage. Alternatively if more spread is needed two of the XR15's would be a great fit with 24" x24" coverage on each of them.
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on May 17, 2016 8:42:00 PM
Looking at getting a custom tank built and was deciding on lighting beforehand...would 3 XRw 30 G3 provide enough coverage on 72l 30w 24h tank, I was reading below it covers 30 x 24 but if I mounted them perpendicular to the tank I would essentially I could get a 24l x 30w coverage so three should be ideal...Thoughts? Thanks for your time.
Question by: Bruce on Apr 4, 2016 2:36:00 PM
Great question!
3 of the fixtures would be ideal spread over a 72" tank. You can get by with 2 to start however for even lighting across the tank we recommend 3. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Apr 8, 2016 10:17:00 AM
How many amps will these draw? I'm having problems pluggin everything I need into the same room.
Question by: Brian Hamstra on Feb 26, 2016 10:38:00 AM
Great question!
Unfortunately we cannot give a direct answer for the amps of the Radion, The variability of the light causes the amount to fluctuate. For a better result it may be worth contacting Ecotech directly. I have included their contact information below!

Hi, I have a 60"×24"×29" mixed reef tank, more hard corals, how many should I use on the tank, and how many inches above the water line.
Question by: Dwayne on Jan 23, 2016 10:12:00 AM
Great question!
The XR30 has a 30" x 24" foot print at 30" deep. Overall you can start with 2 radions over the tank for good penetration. They typically will be mounted around 6" above the water line. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Jan 28, 2016 6:49:00 PM
I have a 65 gallon 36x18x24 tall with a center brace. Will 1 xr30 give adequate coverage, or would it be better to have 2 xr15 so the arrays can be further apart?
Question by: Bob on Mar 27, 2016 7:13:00 PM
Great question!
The xr30 has a spread around 30 x 24 and would be a little limited. Ideally 2 xr15's will have a better spread! Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

  • Not very well made, terrible customer service. Poor value for $$$ By Joe on 9/13/2016

    I had one of these for a year, they looked great while running. The button controls were awkward so I programmed it using the software and never touched them again. The light stopped working after one year. Sent it back in, as it is clearly not supposed to stop working that soon. Customer support sent a replacement immediately and charged $600 to my credit card immediately. They stated that there was water damage to the unit, from touching the buttons with a wet finger. I have only used the buttons twice (with dry hands because this thing cost $$) because they were so awful to use, and the unit has been suspended 18" over the aquarium the entire time I have owned it. Apparently they are not made to be used near water. Also when I did not want the replacement unit they charged me $600 for, I returned it and asked for them to send my original unit back. The have not yet refunded me for the returned unit, and my original fixture was returned to me completely disassembled (literally loose circuit boards in a box). To add insult to injury there are not even enough screws to put it back together. (missing 8) I was appalled with their customer service.
  • Growth within a week By bfrnech on 5/31/2016

    A few other reviewers have clearly pointed out the high cost of this device. They're correct it's not cheap by any stretch of the imagination. That being said, my corals love these lights. Where previously I saw some growth over the course of a month I now see the same level of growth within a week. IT's getting kind of ridiculous and I'm having to frag stuff out just to make space.

    If you're going to do this, purchase a reeflink. Being able to use ecosmart live and control the radions and vortechs from my phone has been great. Especially entertaining to guests and I don't have to worry about plugging or unplugging items or messing with a timer. Additionally, if I want to see it during off hours I can easily turn it back on and play with the color spectrum. Loved these so much that I bought more for my next tank upgrade :)
  • Perfect for the deep pocket By Alex on 5/5/2016

    So lets be honest, you are not buying this because it has special LEDs or other ground breaking IP. I know that was not the reason for me. You can easily build a replicable system (in terms of LED choice and dimmable) for about $400 said and done with fans, hanging kit, etc and still have controller support.

    So with a hanging kit and this light you are looking at $800, double the cost of a DIY or alternate solution with the same exact LEDs, or more.

    I was extremely skeptical on buying until I got to see one in person. A store owner let me run demo on a string of 6 XR30W Pros he had from his tablet. Sold. The software is why you buy this light. The customization of your scheduling, color control, odds and ends just blew me away. Apex integration, which I plan on doing in the future, and the ability to sync or differentiate all the lights in your system put the big picture in place for me. If you have no interest in configuring your tank(s) schedule down to the K and light intensity by the minute, then this light is probably not for you. The small extras like "storm mode" and "cloud cover" add a unique touch to the environment.

    My plan is to buy 9 more of these lights; I currently have one. Ecotech gets 3 stars from me because no matter how many lights you buy, nobody is allowed to sell/market these lights for less than what you see on BRS. This is the only company I've ever bought from (Ecotech I mean) that will not discount you even 1% on such a large sum of money ($8,000 in my case) for lighting (even commercial companies who I buy 10's of thousands of dollars from will budge). So, the economy of scale is not there and anyone running larger systems or multiple smaller systems are at a disadvantage with this light, in which case I would say go Halide or T5, which in all likeliness is what I will end up doing.

    Ecotech knows they have priority in the LED market and they are making use of that.

    All in all, great looking product, great function, great support, but total scrooges.

    Bought this light to replace my previous LED lighting system, when I made a modest change from a 30 gallon to a 38 gallon reef. Unfortunately the new tank has a brace in the middle and I had to use the tank mount for the Radion a bit off center. I purchased the wide angle lens to get better coverage on the one side that wasn't receiving enough light.
    The main problem was programming my Radion with the Ecosmart Live. Fortunately the people at Ecotech's customer support helped out.
    It's been two weeks with the new lights. So far, I can tell you that my SPS corals which are midway to higher look no better than they did with my previous lighting. However, the zoanthids, scolymias and acans that I have on the sand bed look better than ever, and growing, as well, particularly the Scoly's.
    I am still in the acclimation process. I started out at 20% intensity and am currently at 35%. I'll probably go a bit higher, but don't want to push it.
    Maybe I can ask the people at my LFS if I can rent or borrow a PAR meter which would make it easier to fine tune the lighting.
  • Stunning By Matt on 3/18/2016

    Outstanding. Put 2 of these over my 110 tall and my tank and they look amazing. Price is steep but I'm quite happy with the purchase.
  • Pricey, but awesome By jsbull on 1/2/2016

    These do everything you want them to and even have a bunch of showy functions. I don't plan to use clouds or lightning storms in my house, but hey, it's part of the cool factor to say you do.

    At first, I couldn't believe the price of these lights, but I bit the bullet and got them. I'm really glad I did. My Apex controls them wonderfully and before I had it, I used the EcoSmart Manager. Both work really well and do everything you want them to.

    If you can handle the price tag, you can't go wrong.
  • Nice lights but my corals suffered By EddieKMD on 11/27/2015

    The lights intergrate well with Apex Neptune controller so I did not have to purchase the ReefLink. I noticed that my corals were dying or at a standstill. I didn't have PAR meter so I didn't know how strong I should run these. I ran at 20-40% but corals were still dying. I ended switching to T5s. Corals are very happy now. They did more growth in a month then they did in 2 years!
  • Ecotech XR30 By TJ on 9/7/2015

    These lights are WOW! I had cheaper LEDs, and they did fine with my SPS. But these XR30s are incredible with all the features. The color they produce is amazing! I keep the red/green channel very low, 10% max at peak lighting over my 180 reef. The only downside is the price, but if you can bite the bullet you will not be disappointed. I would definitely get the reeflink also.
  • WOW By Aaron on 8/24/2015

    This light is more then what I expected!. I ordered two of these to hang over my reef and I can't believe the dramatic impact they have. I'm having a difficult time connecting them to my apex but the echosmart live software is fantastic so I may not have too. There is plenty of light, so much so that I'm only running mine at 15%. I'll be purchasing a PAR meter soon so that I can dial in my setup to optimum levels. Don't hesitate if you're on the fence with these.
