Lighting based on 4 Orphek Atlantik V4
Jonathan, tell us about your lighting, as you can see from the photos you have an extremely powerful light area.
“A crucial point in running my aquarium is lighting. I have always argued that the real engine of a marine aquarium dedicated mainly to SPS hard corals is the light. It cannot be missing, without ifs and buts … it must cover the entire surface and evenly.
Initially the tank started with other ceiling lights but given the dimensions of 150x80x50 (h) not even four 130 watt cluster ceiling lights were enough to guarantee a noteworthy growth.”

Now it’s been a year and a half that they light up my corals, some of them have become really big, they forced me to make several re-stylings and to eliminate some to give more time to the bigger colonies “.
