Mets Radion pro or Reg radions for SPS

I see the pro has a few more colored lights but don’t think it’s necessary since my old sol blues grew acros fine. What would be your preference? Also for a 6ft 180 how many do I need? I hear 3 is fine but you know how the internet is I’ve also heard 4 or more

I have 4 SOLS mounted parallel across a 180g and if I were to evaluate, it probably needs 5, so I would say 4 non-pro Radions if I were to change over.

Your doing a hybrid setup?
Then 3 should work fine. I have slots for 4 if I ever change over. I also use T5 supplement but only 2 bulbs because the 24" width of the tank is a bit narrow for 4 bulbs IMO.
