I think you will get all sorts of opinions on lighting, however, 1 Radion will not cut it. Like the person above said, the LEDs will vary greatly on what you grow. Most can grow anything; the Radion's will grow insane corals, but so can a lot of other lights. If you are just going to do softies and LPS, you could get away with running cheap lights, what people call "Chinese Black Boxes". 
Are you planning on lots of SPS?

I believe you will need 2 of those, but then it depends on what corals you have. Basically you need one for 2 feet of tank

Hey everyone,I am trying to decide which light(s) to go with on a new tank i'm setting up.  Its a standard size 90 gallon tank/35 gallon sump.  I believe the standard size for the display tank is a 48"-18" footprint, and 24" inches tall.
I currently have a 48" fixture that I was planning to use (two 250-watt metal halides and four 52 watt T5's) but the fixture is a pretty tight squeeze inside my canopy.  It only fights with about a half inch of clearance on each side.  Although there is plenty of room above and below as I have a custom made canopy that is extra tall.
I considered using a hole saw to cut holes in the ends of the canopy so that I could mount some computer fans there to give the fixture the ventilation it needs, however, I would prefer to not damage my brand new custom built canopy if I can avoid it.
Due to this, I am thinking I would like to sell the halides and buy some smaller LEDs instead.  I'm a little nervous that I will lose the shimmer that you get from the halides, but willing to try something new.
If I go the LED route, how much light do I need?
I'm thinking of going with the ecotech radions, probably the new Gen 4's (the XR30w) since anything older is hard to find these days.  Can I get away with using only 1 of these fixtures?  Or would I need two?  And is it worth it to buy the Pro's?  I believe the Pro's have 40 more watts and more bulbs in each fixture.
Thanks for any advice you can give me!

They can be raised on dry foods but you get a poor survival rate. Your on about day 10 and I would not introduce live at this point, continue with dry. Brine shrimp are not needed or recommend for raising clown fish. I like and recommend a product from Reef Nutrition called TDO.

I was watching my tank and saw 4 separate clouds burst from different holes in my rockwork. I saw no creatures around at the time and all four happened within about 15 to 30 seconds. The clouds were bright red and dissipated in the current fairly quickly. I'm thinking this was some kind of spawning and am wondering if anyone has any idea what created these clouds? Happened too fast for pics

Would you be willing to sell smaller frags off your colonies?  In particular, I would be interested in the rainbow loom and strawberry shortcake, and probably a few others.  Thanks.
