Are you planing on using those two fixtures together? If so, how will you place them?

The Kessil is much more powerful than the Orbit (which is only good for fish only or shallow reefs under 18"... even better would be 12" or less).

The tank is a 32" quarter cylinder with the longest distance between corners hitting 45" and a depth of 30".

It will be an sps dominate tank and I will be using the Neptune Apex so compatible fixtures are a plus. Price for fixture/s isn't too big of an issue, but the south side of $1000 is ideal.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Tough tank to get good over all coverage. Is there an overflow in the back corner? I'd be looking at a 24" fixture up each side or doing 2... maybe 3 pendants like Kessils. Good luck.
