Hi all I'm converting my 210 fowlr into a reef and was wondering about your thoughts on this light I will be replacing all bulbs with ati , plan on mainly Lps and zoas might move my carpet aneome in their or get a diffrent anemone, and eventually add some sps lol anyone use this light on your reef ? And what experiences ?

How tall is your 210? And are you looking at the Nova or nova extreme pro? I've had both fixtures at one point and I'd have to say that the extreme pro (48" 6 bulb with fans) could grow anything in a 24" tall tank with proper placement of the coral. The Nova (4 bulb passive cooled) did well with an RBTA and Lps/softies for me. Hope this helps.

I had the Nova and when I got my new tank which is a 210 I sold it because it wouldn't be enough to get down to the 30" depth of my tank. If you have the same tank I would recommend an LED light for it. I have the AI Sol but the Vega, Radeon, or the new lights that Reef Monster sells would all work for it.
