EcoTech Marine Radion Blue LED Lighting For Reef Tanks - Top FAQs
What's the difference between the Radion XR30 Blue and XR30 Pro?
The main difference between the two lights is the LED diode selection. Each fixture has a unique spread of LED diodes which enables to user to achieve different color spectrums.
The Blue is designed to be plug-and-play and doesn't require any sort of custom spectrum tuning in order to achieve a successful spectrum. The Pro, on the other hand, gives the user a wider range in terms of spectrum and provides a better platform for custom spectrum tuning.

How do you control the Radion XR30?
Using Mobius of course! This is EcoTech Marine's control app that is compatible with Radion LED Lights, Versa Dosing Pumps, and their Vectra Return Pump.
The app provides users with easy-to-use presets as well as very detailed custom control options. This includes individual color channels, photoperiod, output intensity, weather effects, acclimation mode, and even lunar lighting profiles!
How long should I run my LEDs each day?
Most reef tank owners run an 8-10 hour total photoperiod. The most common approach is a total of 10 hours with a 1 hour ramp up and 1 hour ramp down to create a sunrise and sunset effect. This will result in a total of 8 hours at maximum output.
