I have a hybrid T5 with radion fixture but it's high in the center of my tank. The front row is shadowed by all my colonies so I was looking to put this along the front edge to cover lower SPS along the front rocks of my tank. IF I am looking for PAR (I run mainly all blue + ATI bulbs with heavy blue LED setup) can I get away with the UV version? Or it the UV actinic just for pop and not growth/par?

I would use the blue plus, best of both worlds and has plenty of par. I have three wrapped around my 90g, front and both sides. I'm considering adding another for the back for complete coverage.

I’m buying my second or2 bar from saltwaterAquariums.com. I already had a blue so this one is a UV. They are supplementing my Kessil 360x. I should have just bought a second Atlantik v4 at this point lol.

Do you make any mounts for Eurobraced Aquariums for the Orphek lights , it looks like the mount you sell is only for rimless

I've got the new blue plus in an 8" canopy. The strip is about 4 inches above the water. Looks great! I'm sure ideally it should be higher but I'm happy with it and my other strips at that height. If you can mount them near the top of your canopy they should be fine. I've got plenty of ventilation (fans blowing in) and vents so hopefully they won't over heat in the closed canopy.
