With mostly LPS and soft corals 2 lights should do it. Especially with the deeper tank though, if you transition to SPS a good chance youll be looking at 3.
The Radion Pro comes with 4 more LED's then the standard Radion does including yellow LED's that are absent on the regular Radion and 2 extra deep blue LEDs.
For the 90 gallon tank you have a few options. Two of the XR30's would give you plenty of spread and a lot of control for a great tank. You could if you were looking to keep this tank for a while select two of the XR15's as well. the XR30 has a great spread of 30-36" across and 24" front to back while the XR15 has a spread of 24" x 24". Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
The XR30 has a spread around 30' x 24 and would work well however ideally 2 of the XR15's would be more spread out light towards the edges of the tank.
The xr30 has a spread around 24" x 30" and for the tank 2 may work however ideally for best spread and growth 3 fixtures may be required. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Def would have softies and LPS but eventually want to try spa up high so...
2nd would this one or the pro be better ??
The XR 30 will work great for your application and the height can be adjusted to limit shadowing. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Unfortunately one Radion would not be enough light spread for the tank. You could possibly try two of the XR15's which have a spread around 24" x 24". Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
You can raise the light to get more spread, but it will be at the expense of light intensity. It may do the trick depending on the type of corals you plan to keep though and in your case though its likely the best option as 2 would really be overkill.. The nice thing about the Radions is that they are modular though, so if you start off with one and decide you need more later you can simple add another.
The Radion XR30 will have a spread around 30" x 24". This would be a little limited towards the edge of the tank but depending on if the tank has 1 brace or two. If 2 braces are on the tank you could consider 3 of the XR15's which have a spread of 24" x 24". Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
I am currently setting up my new tank that's dimensions are 36"x19"x18". Would this light be a good option for me? Would the pro be necessary?
For a mixed reef tank 2 will be great as the lights typically have good growth around 24" x 30" and overall can spread 36" wide. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
The XR 30 will have a spread around 30" x 24", we recommend either two of the XR15's with a spread of 24" x24" or two of the XR 30's for best coverage.
The foot print is approximately 30" x 24" and depth around 20-30" You could consider 2 of the XR15 if possible for better spread. One light certainly will work for your tank however. We would not recommend the pro unless you have the extra depth in the aquarium. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
If you don't use the reef link then you can just plug it into your computer via the included USB cable.
It does not come with any mounting hardware as every setup is likely to be different. Depending on your setup you would either way to look at a suspension kit, or a suspension kit and rails if your using multiple lights.

way to expensive By cheesehead on 3/27/2016cheesehead wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI have been running two of these over my frag tank for about a year. As far as lights go, I have seen better growth on everything except sps from my kessils and maxspect. The thing I really don't like is the reeflink controller. It works when it wants two, and has never been reliable at all with my vortechs. For the price, I am totally disappointed
What I expected and more! By Chris on 11/19/2015Chris would recommend this product to a friendI have my radion mounted over my 55 gallon tall reef tank. I have seen really good growth in all of my LPSs SPSs. Really makes the colors of my corals pop. Being able to control it through my Apex makes it that much better to use as well.
Probably the best LED on the market. By Jeremy on 11/16/2015Jeremy would recommend this product to a friendI'm sure everyone is familiar with all the functions that this light can perform, so I'll only concentrate on what you can't really see from the videos. I've worked at a LFS for the past 4 years and seen a lot of different lights come though the store. In my opinion, this fixture produces a much more "crisp" light than other LED fixtures on the market, such as the Hydra 52 / 26, Prime, Orphek, or Ecoxotic Cannons. The only rival as far as crispness goes is Kessil, but I have not seen the growth or coloration under kessil that I have with radions. Don't get me wrong, all those lights work just fine and look pretty good, I personally just prefer the appearance of the light produced by the radion. The color blending is almost as good as the kessil, but I like the very faint color separation, it has a very natural look. Also, I have not seen another LED fixture that gives such a wide variety of sps such good color. I have, however, seen better sps coloration on T5 only or T5/halide tanks, but as far as LED's as a stand alone fixture go, this one is the best. It provides great coloration on sps, clams, lps, and softies, even though it's not quite as good as T5's. I'd say you'll get probably 85% to 90% the coloration of T5's with proper water quality. The extra 15% coloration maybe enough for you to deal the extra maintenance of bulbs and such, but I prefer the ease of changing the spectrum with a simple click and not worrying about buying bulbs. To reiterate, this is just my opinion of what I've seen and experienced with these lights over the last year or so.. your mileage may vary.
