Hey all thought I would enlist some of your thoughts. I have decided on getting a Neptune apex controller my only questions is when? Before new lights or after. Now as for lights I am going LEDís I was going to go with a DIY build but lately time is lacking and I would like a professional look. So my current 2 thoughts are the new eco tech radionís or the Kessil 150w 10000k. Now I understand the 2 are in 2 different classes and although I would like the bells and whistles that come with the Radions I donít find that I would consider them a must for me. My main goal is to get all my hardware in place before I dive into getting a lot of coral. Also my tank is 5íl x 18Ēd x 24Ēt so that in mind I think I can get away with 2 radions or 4 kessils but would rather go with 3 radions and 5 kessils. Now that said cost is a factor and in Canada I can get 3 kessils for the price of one radion.
So the main question is after dropping all the bells do I get the same result?
Also what should come first the controller or lights?
OR a third option do I wait for the 350 kessils for come out and hope the cost is not too far outside my budget?
