I’ve heard nothing but good things about the Illumagic. A lot of UV, low power consumption and decent par numbers. I wonder if anyone has seen them all in person.I Wanted the illumagic originally, bought the orphek atlantik received with two bad diodes now returning. considering the radion G5 blue, but should go back to illumagic maybe?
I don't think the new ap9x pucks are the same as an a360x. They market 1 fixture as being good enough for SPS on a 36"x24" tank. I trust Kessil since they're an LED company first.Don’t do it man. You will regret it. A360x don’t have much power and if your tank is more than 12” tall, it won’t even hit 100 par at the bottom.
Mine are 10" off the water surface on a 2' deep tank. I don't notice any disco ball affect. I also have plenty of surface movement.I’ve seen one orphek in use and there was major disco ball effect but the owner had them ~6” from the water. Does anyone running Orpheks experience this?
I’ve heard the Illumagics don’t cover front to back very well but I haven’t seen them in person to judge for myself. Ive narrowed it down to either orphek or Radion g5.My Orphek went back and BRS confirmed it had two diodes were bad in it on a new unit. My illumagic shows up tomorrow, but heavily considered G5, or G4. from my research everyone said G4 was just as good and the money wasn't worth an upgrade. If that helps any, I can let you know what I think of the illumagic when I get it going
