@Scurvy I did move the hangers to the outside set and moved the light up to 15.5" off the water. I left the T5 at 12" for less light spill from them. I also turned up the intensity of the lights following the @Bulk Reef Supply settings for the Atlantiks. Seems a little less spread than the 2 - 26HDs but I love the color. Seems a lot less blues when taking pics now as well. Don't have to edit for color now.

Hey Fudsey. I recently put this same light over my 130. Had to get a rack to hang it from. But I’m also wanting to adjust height. Have mine 14” above the waterline. Not getting any spill so I’m afraid it’s not enough light. But boy is the V4 heavy

OK FINE ! ! ! ;Hilarious ;Yuck;Hilarious

Got the Orphek installed, think I need to raise it some more. It's at 13" over the water line but shading on the ends is a little extreme.... Can I move the hangers on it to the outside bolts? Can't find anything that says yea or nay....

What’s your impression of Orpheks? I kind of miss my Maxspect. Still getting used to the V4.
I like the light, the control could use some work. AI's control was so much easier and could do it from a browser unlike the V4 which only has the app. The app needs a lot of polishing.

I agree. I dislike the app. I decided to run the clouds function. But it won’t save the times so I forget when they start/stop. Also the programs reset themselves on my app. I do like the color from the light though.

@ScottR that's what I'm saying, the app needs work. It took me a while to get it to set up properly. You have to "send" the commands after every change and make sure you use the same name each time. It always looks like the changes don't take until you select the light at the bottom instead of "all".

Beautiful tank! That looks amazing!
Thank you ! !
Beautiful Keith!
Thanks Brian ! !
Looking awesome @Fudsey !!! Hope my tank looks half as good as that by spring time!
Thanks ! !
Thanks ! !
