    I'm busy setting up a 1.5m tank with a cheap Olx deal 54w Odyssea quad.After I bought the tank and quad I was advised the quad is not the best light for my setup because it's too narrow and too short.I have to use it now,blown my budget,so this means doing modifications and playing around with it to try get the best out of it.Im changing the reflector to miro4 aleniod and have ordered 2x aquastars and 2x skywhite bulbs,because the reflector has a bad reputation and the standard Odyssea bulbs could use a upgrade.If i can give advise or do it over again I would chose a different light fixture.Preferably 1 that's wider and I'll definitely go for a 80w 1.5m fixture.Hope this helps.Good luck.
