- Radion XR30w G4 Pro LED Light Fixture - EcoTech Marine
Why does BRS recommend Ecotech Radion Lights?
Ecotech has refined their line of Radion LED units over the years to become one of the best LED units on the market today. Now with Micro-fin cooling technology and HEI Optics increasing the color blending capabilities while also increasing the overall spread. With unmatched control through the ReefLink controller and EcoSmart Live programming, a LED unit can’t get much easier than the G4 series of Radion LED Lights.
Why go PRO?
- Peaks higher around 420nm
- 12 additional LEDs proving a fuller spectrum
- 40 additional watts of power
- Adds Violet and Warm White channels
Revolutionary HEI Optics (Hemispherical Edge Illumination) are now incorporated in all G4 Radion LED lights. HEI helps deliver better uniformity, spread, and overall color mixing allowing the Radions to come very close simulating Halide/T5 combos without any added heat or energy usage. The lens geometry of the HEI Optics offers a significant improvement over standard optics and even TIR lenses spreading the light over a greater area, allowing your tank to have a more even spread of light without any major hot spots.
The completely redefined heatsink of the G4 series of Radions now has Micro-Fin cooling creating more surface area allowing for a quicker heat transfer and dispersion allowing for more passive cooling, and less need for active cooling. Along with the heatsink's cooling fins, a computer driven, silent, IP55 cooling fan allows for active cooling over the Micro-Fins letting your light shine brighter and last longer!
The web based interface lets you control all of your Ecotech Marine products through the cloud. Through your smartphone, tablet, or computer you can control the G4 family of Radion lights anywhere you have internet access. The ReefLink Controller creates a fully inclusive device management system, with the use of the Vortech propeller pumps, Vectra return pumps, and Radion lighting, create an authentic ecosystem that you can control right from your fingertips.

Ecotech offers multiple types of mounting solutions for the G4 family of Radion LED lights. From full tank track systems letting you use multiple G4 Radion lights, to single light RMS mounting arms and hanging kits.
Radion Hanging Kit - Mount a single Radion light quickly and easily. Radion Hanging kits have quick lock fasteners that let you adjust the height making it a great choice for frag systems, or acclimation systems.
RMS Mounting Arm - Mount your single Radion through a robust tank mounting system. The RMS Arm is by far the quickest and least obtrusive option that doesn't require drilling any holes in your walls or ceilings.
RMS Track System - The 3 piece system lets you mount multiple Radion lights in a single track that lets you slide them back and forth to create the best coverage for your tank. The track system is perfect for larger tanks letting you use either a hanging kit to suspend the track system or the RMS Arm Kit for a tank mounting option.
Note: Reeflink Controller required for use with EcoSmart Live. Also controllable through the Neptune Apex WXM Module.
Tuning Your New LED Light
Most LED lights will actually put out more light than your corals will actually need and without a PAR Meter to test the overall output, it is really hard to guess if the light is too dim or intense. We highly suggest using a PAR Meter to test the output of your lights at different points throughout your tank that you can use to tune the lights output or know where to put specific corals.
Blinding/POOR customer service By Pietro on 10/14/2019Pietro wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThe new lens which helps spread light better is good but if you happen to like looking at your tank than you shall be blinded by this light because the lens sits below the actual housing of the light. It forces you to buy the extra diffuser cover because of this....Customer service with Ecotech has always been poor..they are very unforgiving and expect you to pretty much send them the product and wait weeks for a diagnosis as if we have spares laying around...this goes for all ecotech Products in general...
Great lights By Damion on 2/17/2019Damion would recommend this product to a friendI have been using these g4 pro lights since they came out, and I love them! So programmable through Apex and my corals love them!
Disappointed By Tim on 2/5/2019Tim wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI’ve had 2 lights stop working and customer service is very poor. The first time I had to wait a month for the replacement because they were back ordered. The second time it took 2 weeks to arrange for a replacement while a bunch of my SPS struggled to stay alive. I expect better for the money I paid.
Great When it Works By Mike on 2/4/2019Mike wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI’m on my second set of Radions. I upgraded from Gen 1 to Gen 3 Pro 10 months ago. The fixtures are fantastic when they work. However, during the 1st week I had them one of crashed. It took 4 weeks for them to replace it because they had back orders. Then, last week, the replacement one they sent to me stopped working. While things happen, the bad part is that customer service made the process difficult both times. When you pay this much for a fixture, part of the expectation is that the customer service is as good as the product (at least when the product works). I think I’m done with these guys and won’t purchase any new Radions. It’s disappointing because they are great - when they work.
Great lights/Recurring Fan Problems/Very Poor Customer Servoce By Michael on 2/4/2019Michael wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI love my gen 4 pros when they work. I’ve had mine for 10 months. The 1st week one of the fixtures stopped working because the fan stopped. They replaced after 4 weeks because they had a backlog of orders. Now a second unit is having a similar problem. It’s enough that I needed to deal with the inconvenience twice but customer service made it worse. For the cost, one would expect that if there is a technical problem they would bend over backwards to help, especially when there are corals depending on it. Instead they make the process very burdensome. I wouldn’t buy from them again.
Mo' Money Mo' Problems By Ryan on 2/3/2019Ryan wouldn't recommend this product to a friendMy 1yr review... 20yrs in the hobby.
Programming on an Apex is deceiving and you have to be careful with the intensity sliders because they all affect intensity and not in the way you would expect.
Programming on the ReefLink is mind-numbing and seemingly impossible set up properly.
The red LED Spectrum has been shown to cause more damage than good in a wide variety of corals I would not suggest using it. This was the case for me until someone educated me on it and I turned them off. Better health ever sense.
The overall usability of these lights for the price is absolutely terrible. The likelihood of you killing your tank and damaging your corals is significant if you try to program yourself and without a par meter.
I have had success growing corals however I found better coloration with other fixtures and other types of lighting, all of which cost way less. Not that these aren't capable of that but I'm not capable of figuring out the convoluted programming to make that happen and when other fixtures do it for less and require significantly less effort and skill it's a hard sell.
Single worst purchase I made for my system.
Could not ask for ANYTHING better By Fish Whistler on 1/30/2019Fish Whistler would recommend this product to a friendFive star for sure
good luck programming By steve on 1/22/2019steve wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI have had these lights for quite some time and each and every time I try to program them with their ecosmartlive software it is a complete nightmare which often ends up with me sending the one of my lights back to ecotech. It is hard to believe they can have such horrible software for them. I wish I never bought them!!!!!! When they work they are great but you will be uttering some curse words I guarantee it!!!!
Fantastic light !!!! By Chris on 9/21/2018Chris would recommend this product to a friendThe Radion XR30w G4 Pro is a fantastic lighting option that will produce large colorful corals, and when coupled with the reef link it opens up a ton of customizable options.
Great lights By Tom on 9/13/2018Tom would recommend this product to a friendThey were easy to set up and they work great
Should of bought them sooner By Slacker on 8/22/2018Slacker would recommend this product to a friendCould not be happier. It arrived fast and in perfect shape. Put them up right away and love them.
Say What?! By Chris on 6/29/2018Chris would recommend this product to a friendI upgraded from a cheep LED and I don’t regret paying for 2 of these. The ease of controlling this with a reef link and the immediate changes in corals are big change from my Current LEDs. If you really care about the health of your fish tank, DONT skimp on lights. Especially since your corals get their food from photosynthesis.
Are these capable of being controlled through Alexa?
How many XR30s for a 4 foot tank? Red Sea Reefer 350? and should they be mounted lengthwise front to back?
Hi guys, general advice. If I wanted to run some of these on a Red Sea Reefer 250. Would 1 unit do it? Or should I be looking at 2??
I've only been in the hobby for a little over a year w/my 6', 125 gal tank. Currently I'm using T5s, but the unit I have is not ideal for this tank. The coverage is horrible and my corals are not particularly happy with them. They exist but some of them don't seem to be thriving. I blame it on the lighting as I'm pretty particular about water quality. I keep hearing of light controllers and wondered if that was necessary for this unit? Sorry for the rookie question...
Do the leds ever burn out in these? If they do, do you have to replace the whole thing?
How many xr30 pro's would you recommend for a red sea reefer xxl 750 for a mixed reef?
Does the Neptune wxm now support all channels?

Right now I have softies and LPS in my 65 gallon. Eventually I want to get a bubble tip anemone. Would one light be enough wattage for a BTA? What light or lights would you guys recommend to have a BTA?
Ok im looking for the led fixtures that can be programmed with lightening storms as i was shown at my lfs. does this system allow for this. if not do you sell a system that allows this thanks
Do you need reef link to control just lights from phone?
You would need either the Ecotech Reeflink or the Neptune Apex paired with the WXM module in order to control these lights remotely.
Happy reefing! :)
Hi, Guys, I have an 80 gal. Mixed reef tank, 36"L x 24"W x 20"D. I'm looking to up grade my lights. I'm currently running a 36" SunBrite F-series. I'm interested in the new Radion Pro. Would it be better to go with 2 - xr15 pros or 1- xr30w pro to get the best light coverage. I guess I should mention that my tank has a center cross brace on it which is about 1 1/2" wide plus clear mesh screen tops. Thanks in advance for any input.
Have a great day!
40" long 20" wide would be mounting front to back how many would I need? sps reef
I'm struggling to come to a lighting decisions for my 30x30 cube. For a mixed tank, would 1 30 Pro be enough or would 2 15's from Radion be a better solution? I see the recommended and maximum spread and with them coming in about about the same price point I cant decide. Thanks for your help.
Hope this helps!
I am planning a 96" long by 48" wide by 28" depth mixed reef tank. How many of these would I need?
For a tank this size I would use four of these fixtures. I would, however, depend on the set-up consider using seven xr15s instead which would be cheaper in price and give a much better even spread of par.
