Originally from ticket #1089.

I am putting together a 75gallon 48"Wx18"D tank, and would like to outfit it with the Pro RGB LED setup. The tank will be a fish/reef tank. I was wondering if you could reccomend me a setup. Please let me know if I left any necessary information out, as I am new to the saltwater tank hobby. Thanks in advance for your time and consideration.

Dear Kyle,

Thank you for contacting us. We would be happy to help you with a recommendation for your lighting system.

Could you tell us what type of corals you will be keeping? Also, is there a reason your leaning towards the Panorama Pro RGB modules?

Forgive my ignorance, I am still in the research phase of this, and it's my first saltwater tank setup. I understand that corals will be the last things in the tank, but want to buy the correct equipment to support them up front. I will probably be doing mostly lps, soft corals, and a couple clams. I might also do an anemone at some point, as well as a little sps coral. I'd like to have a setup capable of most anything, as long as it's fiscally feasable. I like the rgb for the flexibility of light, as well as the ability to put on one heck of a light show when company is over :) I figured having the full spectrum of light available would be the most vesatile option. What would be your recommendation?

Dear Kyle,

The RGB Panorama Pro is designed more as a color accent light. It mixes red, green and blue light to create different color appearances. It is not designed for high coral growth - strictly color changing.

For a 75 gallon aquarium, we recommend a minimum of 9 modules for SPS corals and clams. Usually hobbyists use the following:
4 x 12K White/445nm Blue
5 x 445nm Blue or 445nm Blue/Magenta

If you wanted to add RGBs into the mix for effects, we would recommend the following module configuration:
4 x 12K White/445nm Blue
3 x 445nm Blue
2 x RGB Modules

This would provide adequate light for your corals and clams, while still providing amazing color changing effects.
