These bars are working great. I have 8 of them, 3 Reef Day and 5 Blue+ on a full SPS tank. I switched from an Aquatic Life hybrid with 2 coral+, 2 Blue+ T5 and three Radion XR30 a couple of months ago. My PAR went up and was more even, and, colors have improved. Also, NO fan noise now!
Wow, you even nixed the XR30s?

Yes, two Gen4 non-pro and one Gen3 Pro. They were good and I was a bit nervous switching but zero issues happened.

Hi @Orphek , I'm horrible at IT type things. I've never even tried to post a photo on R2R. I have been able to post a Youtube video link, but I didn't make the video, although it was of an old system of mine. Let me see what I can figure out.

Here is my OR3 blue plus 120 on my 120.
I use it for dawn dusk viewing and 2hrs mid day to supplement my halides.
These things throw some light and remind me of the 80/90's actinics.
They will make your colors pop if the color is already their.
You can see the blue tint on the wall.
I may get another for the back.
Many of my led friends are replacing their g4 radions with a full bank of these.

Hi , not need to be a pro . Just use Orphek lens kit and you become a professional:) .

There will be a small box that will contact btw the led bar and the power supply. It is a Bluetooth + WiFi. And you can control it by app from any place with internet connection. You can dim it to 0.1-1% for moon pass . There is aclimmation and clouds and also you can control the light by voice :) Alexa etc . It translates automatically to the language your phone use and many more . That all I can tell for now.
Any word on a release date?

After we post the video about how to remove the lens .

Clients ask if can change the lens of the OR3 to wider .

Why ????

The OR3 is built to grow Sps Lps and provide the right amount of PAR .
If take out the lens we are missing the point .

so taking out the lens will give the best spread and will color the tank.

specifically I have a nano, so optimal growth is the only factor (versus a frag tank where you want fastest growth possible), eventually everything will take over the tank.

besides that, I can mount lights 2-4 inches over the water, so the PAR falloff is not as bad; and when I mount close to the water level, there are fewer shadows on the corals.

I'm afraid that simply removing the lenses from the OR3 will result in lost PAR because of the black acrylic bar. It's all a balancing act.

I am trying to use mounting arms to mount 2 Orphek Atlantik V4 GEN2 to my Red Sea Reefer 750 XXL. The problem I am having is the glass is to think for the mount with the shims in it. They give you two thin glass guards and four thick. I can make the mount work if I use two thin guards, but they don’t give you enough to do that. Help anyone use these mounts on a 750? @Orphek

What I did was cut all the shims and guard in half (lengthwise) but I don’t have a Red Sea reefer
