    Default SOL LED Lighting question

    Hey guys, so I'm building a new house and in it I'm putting in a 72" Long, 24" Wide, and 26" Deep in-wall reef tank. Due to alot of factors, I've decided to go with an LED set up for primary lighting. I've gotten a good recommendation for SOL LED system and it seems to have alot of versatility. I suppose the first question I have is for that size of tank, are there any other/better brands I should look into? The second question is with my tank size, should I buy the 72" or 60" long model or should I get multiple 12" models? I will be hanging the lights about 16" above water level. I've done research on this but I'm hoping for replies from experience. DIY is really out of the question..
    Thanks guys,
    Mouthstofeed

    Three modules set parallel with the tank will easily cover your needs.
    I have two parallel modules set 12" above the water line on a 60" 100G reef and it is more than adequate.

    I need to get busy and take some more recent photos.
