    here it is marine depot also has it i believe Hanging Kit for EcoTech Radion XR30W LED Aquarium Light Fixture - AquaCave

    i noticed some sites are carrying the hang kit and some aren't ?????

    I'm sitting back and seeing how others like this light, so far all the reviews are great on it. but its a lot of money to buy and not like. i think one might be perfect for my tank 24 by 24 by 14 deep.
    hoping for more pictures and videos on the light.

    Thank you, I'll check that out.

    I think it would be perfect over that tank, and I can't imagine anyone not liking this light. You may be wise to wait a bit though. The hardware is amazing, but the software has its kinks at this point. I think within six months we will see amazing advances with the software side of the light and it will be a no-brainer to buy it after that.

    I did some unofficial PAR testing today on the Radion, and I must say, I underestimated it a lot. I have it mounted about a foot off the water to get good spread on my 40 breeder, and I still get in the mid 200's on the sand at center. Even at the far ends of the tank I get in the low 100's. I have to admit, I'm extremely impressed!

    I think when I changed the article name 3Reef didn't follow. Here it is again:

    They're up to $825 all over Canada now! They were $700, but all of a sudden a big jump. YECH!

    My guess is super high demand and a dwindling supply/production capacity that can't keep up.
