The recommended spread for that light is 24"x24", it should be able to grow your coral!
That would be an excellent light choice for that tank!
Great question! For a mixed reef this should be sufficient for you needs, however higher light corals will need to be centered more closely around the LED pucks for ample PUR.
Happy reefing! c:
There are only a few differences between models, the newer ones have a couple more LED channels including a dedicated moonlight channel. Another difference is the light only works with bluetooth on the app, not wifi anymore.
