    As a newbie to LED reef lighting, I wanted to ask the 3Reef brain trust their opinion.

    I am starting my build of a 150PA and currently have 2 XR 30, Gen 3 Radion's ( non Pro ).

    Being that the tank dimensions are 60"x24"x24" it was suggested to me that I go with 3.

    I ask you, would 3 be enough for this size tank, or should I go with 4?
    Also, if I were to purchase 1 or 2 more XR 30's would it be problematic if I found a couple Gen 2 or Gen 2 pro's and incorporated them along with the Reeflink and 3rd Gen light's?
