SPS reef tank lighting made simple and stable.
You may have already caught the latest BRS TV episode that focuses on lighting; episode 11. The series has been developed to cover all key aspects of a new reef tank set up based on a number of options at various budgets. In this episode they explore lighting and a variety of ways of achieving success.
15:01 The video discusses the option of panel style LED lights that provide an alternate to T5’s for full coverage. Orphek Atlantik series do exactly that.
15:08 shows that one Atlantik v4 Gen 2 light will provide enough light coverage for LPS and Soft corals
15:11 Whilst for show stopping SPS tanks, 2 Atlantiks provide a highly diffused light source that wraps around the corals and is almost impossible to shadow.
15:19 The performance of the Atlantik v4 means you can suspend the lights up to 24’’ above the tank to provide even coverage.
36:30 The Atlantik v4 offers the most comprehensive solution for a 4ft tank with 2 lights costing less than $2000. Arguably the best value v performance option on the market.
The Par achieved on a custom setting and not full power. The Par spread is incredibly even across the whole tank.
Orphek Atlantik provides the real alternative to T5’s for full coverage and a highly diffused light source. The series delivers the perfect spectrum and par to create show stopping SPS displays and gives value for money due to the lower number of lights required to achieve great results.
