I think it would be fine for that,  the maximum coverage is 24x24. 
Problem is that when you have them high enough to get that coverage, you lose power. So you might find them a bit weak for LPS (torches, hammers etc).

I believe @Ratvan has one - you around buddy?

Thank you for the reply, I am basically after a decent set of lights for my 2ft tank, just been looking around and that was one of the options as someone was selling one for 200 pound.

Yeah 2 foot is a tricky size to light.  I used a Hydra 26HD on my 2 footer and it worked very nicely.  I have SPS, LPS and softies in there no problem.

Hello, yes I did indeed have one on my RSM130d (still got it but no access to tank yet) I did have some shading issues so I added a couple of cheap Par38 bulbs, the issue i found was with the penetration of the light. If you keep lower light LPS on the bottom (Lobo, Elegance, Euphyllia's) or softies but I never tried them.

The gooseneck is horrific in my opinion however, I DIYed a lighting rig in the end with PVC piping to hang the Kessil and both bulbs

What was included for the 200? I'm selling up at the minute and have the A360WE and controller. Both 13 months old and have the warranty somewhere

Let me check postage cost but was thinking 300 for the A360WE and Controller, gooseneck (damaged - needs ballast block replacing) and cables and 150 for the A80, Controller, Gooseneck and cables. Also have 2x 21W PAR38 bulbs and a 165W Chinese Blackbox but i need to check that they are all working. Also cannot decide whether to sell the tanks and complete kits or whether to list individual items. Can make probably 2x 5G Nano's and a 2.5G Pico (although very tempted to take that with me)
