One tank - 4 Orphek atlantik with 3 OR3 Bars
Other tank - 2- Orphek OR3-150 plus 3 Ai Htdra 26HD

2. Which brand(s) of lighting are you using for your reef tank?


My preferred lighting is Orphek followed by Ai Hydra

1. Only one fixture over a 90 cm long tank

2. aquanest light plus m7 - not only putting out some serious par but does it for the fraction of the price brands mentioned . I wouldn’t change it. No individual LEDs - no disco effect, sleek design, no ugly mounting like many super expensive one and quiet fans

I’m currently running 4x400 watt radium metal halides. The tank is 72”x54”x30” totaling 500 gallons.

Thank you @Sleeping Giant for the QOTD idea!

One piece of equipment that 99.9% of every saltwater reef aquarium hobbyist uses is LIGHTS! It's also no secret that the majority of reefers now choose LED lighting over other types of lighting. (not saying other types are not good options) But how many lights we have and what brand we are using are left up to our specific needs and taste! So let's light it up with some comments today!

1. How many lights (fixtures) do you have over your tank and what's the dimensions of your tank?

2. Which brand(s) of lighting are you using for your reef tank?
