Not bad for a first marine setup

Thanks for the comments guys!

As for 3 Radions being enough, I will buy one more in the future but as I'm starting from fresh with no current livestock and corals I will not need more light until I build up my coral collection again. Then again, i'll see if they are enough once it's setup

This is going to be one to follow - Have you considered using the Triton System? I'm 8 months into using it on my 12 month old system and it's really starting to look good now. I've also just changed 4 IA's LED's to the new Lani LED's they are expencive but fantastic lights. Just something for you to consider if you haven't already decided.
