Today Ryan is taking the new Orphek V4 Atlantik LED Light for its round of testing. The Orphek light is much different than other systems we have tested so far since it is made up of a panel of LEDs instead of clusters. Orphek is a leader when it comes to LED lighting for reef tanks and today we are going to find out why!
The Atlantik V4 is Orphek’s flagship LED system, and it comes with wireless control through almost any smart device. We were excited to check out how the panel LED system performed when compared to the other types of LEDs on the market, and we were shocked at the results we got. The PAR graphs mimicked T5 lights, with its overall spread and lack of shadowing which was very impressive. Overall the spread of the fixture was very even and went from edge to edge on our 4-foot tank, with just a single module.
The Atlantik’s spectrum also crossed all the way from UV up to IR making it one of the widest spectrums you can buy today. The LED light for reef aquariums comes with 90-degree optics which help spread the light out, while the thick acrylic spacer acts as a diffuser without blocking the optic but blending the light, removing any disco ball effect and producing a nice shimmer.
All this together makes the Orphek Atlantik V4 one of the best choices for a LED only lighting system for reef tanks that have a mix of corals including LPS and SPS.
