    Is it possible to marine ecotech radion xr15 g5 pro for planted tank? Since they turn blue channel down. Only because they have 12 white led compare to 8 on g4. And better spread


    Radion xr15 pro G5
    (12 CoolWhite, 16 royal blue, 8 blue, 2 photo red, 3 green, 2 x uv, 2 uv, 2 Warmwhite, 2 luna. )

    Radion xr15fw G4 (freshwater)
    (8 CW, 7 WW, 4 red, 2 green, 2 blue)

    Maybe, but I'd be willing to bet they eventually roll out a G5 XR15 FW light, too, like they did for their G3 and G4 lights; for the G3 and G4 lights I think they rolled out the FW light several months after the marine lights and that could be the case here, too

    Thanks, that would be awesome. I have email them to see if they think G5 can use for planted tank FW. only because i see more White LED and layout of led will give broader light.

    They reply can be used but not ideal. my new tank is a month away for delivery, and should be one month setting up and cycle.

    I will wait and see then

    thanks

    Well you have 10 channels..
    FIRST make sure you are looking at the PRO version . JUST a reminder
    Next can you live w/ sort of throwing away 24 (all royal, all blue though this is just one of many scenarios) diodes?
    Round it to you really realistically using 1/2 its power though if you want.. ugly tank at full for non-viewing times..
    Now if you like more blue it might not be all that bad.
    Plants like blue photons..;)

    Better off going w/ the AI Prime Freshwater..

    Since Radion and AI are now one company I have a feeling that a Radion fw is not in the making..
    Could be wrong. You have time.
