I am going go supplement my current USA lighting with a actinic blue light bar. Which one do you all think is good. The orphek OR60


Or a reef bright lumilite pro actinic bar?


Thankyou everyone and Merry Christmas!!!!

IMO sell what you have on Craigslist and research and buy:


Extremely cost effective at only $149 per light, the quality of light and the LIGHTING OPTIONS you will have on color and intensity WILL BLOW YOUR MIND.

The day I demo'ed these at my LFS, I was so blown away, I walked out replacing my entire lighting system. 6mos later now and the grow and color im seeing is mind blowing

Never regretted that decision....

Watch these videos on tanks lit by Noopysches:

This one in particular will melt your eyeballs with eye candy:

Another:

This one shows the product pretty upclose:

Honestly I wish I had known about this light before I started. But I have what I got. But I do like the current USA LOOP setup because I can have it all connected in one bluetooth program, both the lights and the wave pumps. So for now just need too suppliment till I upgrade my tank next year

If you want a LED bar that best simulate a T5 and total without any discoeffect - I would recommend GHL Mitras LightBar 2. You can run them without a controller but you can also use some of the Profilux different computers and - in that case - you can individually control every channel.

I use these as main light in my aquarium.

Look at Orphek OR3 light bars too.
They run 5 watt chips at 50%.
They throw alot of light and its quality, imo.
I know many local reefers that are changing out their radions for these.
