We hooked Dave's 8 gallon tank up with one of the new EcoTech Radion XR15w's as well as a sample RMS (Radion Mounting System)! We tested the light and RMS out on a variety of different tanks around the office, and honestly it looked pretty sleek on all everything from the 8g to our 120g lobby tank.
As for functionality, the XR15 is more or less half of a XR30; the XR30 has two LED pucks and the XR15 has one. Both have all the same popular color channels like cool white, deep blue, blue, green, hyper red, yellow, indigo and UV.
The compact, less intense light of the XR15 makes it a great fit for a variety of uses, such as cube tanks and even larger tanks. Since it's not uncommon for those with larger tanks with lower light demanding corals (like LPS and softies) to be using 2 XR30's at 50%, it stands to reason that you could opt for 2 XR15's at 100% and save a couple hundred dollars.
Overall, the XR15 is a pretty sweet fit for small tanks like Dave's! If you have a small tank, let us know what your favorite lighting solution is for it.
