I am very curious about your new 24” Panorama Pro LED Fixture. I'm currently using a mixed reef 40 gallon breeder, mostly soft and LPS, later down the road I will have 1-3 SPS and maybe a clam. I'm wondering if 1 of the Panorama fixtures would be enough for a 40 gallon breeder (36x18x16). I read that you could add more strips later, maybe good for SPS and a clam.
Dear John Squicciarini,
Thank you so much for contacting Ecoxotic and showing interest in our LED products. On a tank this shallow, one 24" fixture would provide enough light for SPS corals and clamps in the center 30" of the tank with no issues. You really would not need to add additional strips.
Please be advised, the fixture does include inline dimmers and with a shallow tank such as yours, we would highly suggest running the fixture at 75% for the first week to ensure you do not bleach any corals.
Please let us know if you have any further questions.
