Hi ;)

I just have a short question about lighting.

My tank is a LPS only shallow reef 48x18“ footprint and 16“ high.

I use 2 Orphek OR3 90 BluePlus Bars and 2 AI Primes between the bars 16“ above water level.

I think of change the 2 Primes for a Kessil AP9x because I could get it for a good price. Iam not sure how to setup my Primes along the bars and the Kessil have a „safe“ spectrum setting , right ?
Maybe better colors too than the Primes ?
I also like the way of color blending from the Kessils.


What u think about the AP9x - OR3Bar 90 Combo over my tank ?

thank u and stay healthy

How do u like the BlusPlus bars ?
I like them a lot. I have mine mounted closer than I want, but I like the the pop and par they give. It also allows me to run my Kessil's on the whiter side during peak hours, while still having an even look throughout the tank. I come from the Iwasaki 6500k MH and actinic days of the 90's, so that's what I'm going for with all led's.
 

Have you ever had a reef tank with no sump and how did it go?
