I would probably start out with the Orbits at 10%-15% and work my way up from there slowly. Even though you had the Radion at 30%, it is a more powerful light that the Orbits so starting out just a bit lower would work out just fine. As always, do keep an eye on the corals when you first put the new light on and if you do notice that they are getting too much or too little adjust accordingly.

I have a 36 x 15 x 20 mixed reef tank. What LED lighting would you recommend.

It would mostly depend on what you are looking to keep. Are you running fish only or are you interested in keeping a variety of corals?

Question Current USA Orbit Marine vs. Orbit Marine Pro

The Current USA Orbit Marine will be sufficient for keeping softies and lower light demanding corals. If you want to venture into SPS corals down the road, consider going with the Orbit Marine Pro.

As you are planning on keeping more corals in the future I would definitely recommend going with the Orbit Marine Pro. The standard Orbit Marine is a great light and is suitable for a variety of softies and LPS, but you will get more out of the Pro in the long run, especially with SPS.

I have a new 48x26x24 reef tank
with Dual Orbit Marin Pro 48"
Is this will be enough for most SPS?
I am a bit disappointed because one strip is turning down all the time when light set at 80 or more percents of power
Hope it happened only with me

This is the first we've heard of this issue and suspect you may have a defective unit. Current USA offers warranty coverage to the original end-user, so we definitely encourage you to contact them. If you purchased the light from us and need proof of purchase (your sales invoice), click here to access your Marine Depot order history.

well, i bought my Orbit MP on ebay and seller already contact with manufacturer, they promise me to send a replacement.

So what about my question?
Is this enough for SPS in my tank?
i read the instructions on site
http://current-usa.com/wp-content/up...ifications.pdf
it says SPS need high PAR about 200-500 but Orbit
gives this PAR only at 6" depth no more, if i understand correct

We agree with your assessment of the manufacturer material that high-light SPS corals like acropora and montipora should be placed high in your aquascape within 6" of the light. Lower light SPS and LPS corals or clams, according to the chart, should be placed within 24" of the light. Please note their assessments are based on minimum recommendations.

I currently have Innovative Marine 40 with a Kessil 360WE, thinking of supplementing with a 24 inch Orbit Marine Pro to help reduce shadowing and sps growth. Would the Orbit Marine Pro work for this or would I be better off using duel t5 fixture?
