Orphek client from Malaysia share photos and review of Atlantik LED lighting
One of the advantages of working in a field that we are really passionate about is the endless possibility of meeting other people that share the same passion.
To us, Orphek is not just a job. It is a huge comunity of Nature lovers!
Today we are happy to share a curious aquarium coming from Malasya.
Although the tank was set in 2017 Akasyah is using our first version of LED light solution – the Orphek Atlantik 2012 ( check here info about this solution: https://orphek.com/atlantik-led-pendants-at-macna-2012/ )
We were very happy to know that even after 5 years the light is running perfectly with no power lost ;-)
Update on the lights: client is upgrading to Atlantik V4.
Akasyah was kind enough to give more details of his tank and also review our product:

Usually we show standard shapes, but this tank has a cascade layout, with a “L” letter shaped area which we found interesting to show case and also we found it pretty cool that client has a thing for The Beatles!
Akasyah sent us his review about our Orphek Atlantik LED lighting:
“Recommended for any style of reef tank, the coverage is really fantastic because it can still bring up the fluorescent color of the softies at the bottom part of the drop off (30inch depth).
No algae issues and I don’t really acclimate the light because Orphek intensity is well spread out and no coral bleach or death.
After less than 3 months corals grow really fast and bring up their vibrant color.
Doesn’t matter if you are zoa collector or sps freaks, or slow mo softies lover or LPS this light perfect for any type of coral and the best light mimic the nature”
Check out how many photos Akasyah has sent us!
In this photo you can see the early stages of the tank at the beggining of its installation.
Rocks and Orphek Atlantik LED Lighting were already installed. The Beatles Yellow Submarine and Beatles figurines were also placed.
In the following photos client had already placed corals
You can also see the door opened to see the equipment installed and working.
More corals were placed giving more color to the aquarium.
In this picture you can see that his Orphek Atlantik unit renders light that is really well spread, reaching the entire area!
In these photos client has turned the Blue Channel for vibrancy.
In this picture we can see the Beatles theme, corals and fish all together.
