    2 radions are better then hydra or ap700 in my opinon especially with the diffusers.

    If you go on the official sps page on Facebook you'll see that's most what's used.

    one Kessil AP700 is not enough to cover 120g. Better to go with multiple fixtures

    Unico, you'll need 2 for a 48" 120.

    Whether its Radions, AP700 or Hydra 52s

    I have one Kessil AP700 over a 48" 75 gallon tank. You maybe able to get away with one for 48" 120g depending on your rockwork and if you are going for mostly LPS.

    Only one light will create a lot of shadowing so it depends on what u want to keep. I run 2 XR15 with wide angle lens on my 120. There were some shadows so I have T5s also to help with that.
