I received the new Orphek Atlantik iCon light the other day and will report in a few weeks. I apologize for the poor photo - very busy today.

You're not claiming to have a life outside of reefing are you!

So are the LEDs themselves are different from the Atlantik V4? I know they sell a $180 upgrade from v4 to the ICon
I'll have to get into the lab and do some analyses. I'm hoping I can do that late next week.

Their advert kind of hints that it is - but doesnt seem to focus on it which is surprising. Generally speaking their marketing/advertising is pretty poor so I suppose its not much of a shock if they have a key new selling feature which they arent promoting that much.

Price aside I think this is near the top of my list along with Sky. I love the clean look and the 15-17” mounting height.
A fellow local reefer recommended, so I took a look at them. Initially I was leaning towards to sky, however there are just to many comments on the product being "cheaply made" . I like the idea that the Orphek lights can be upgraded rather than replaced if need be. Not really something I have heard of with other lights. Looking forward to the review...

Hi Dana, what’s the importance of the 730 ?
It's absorbed by Pigment 700 found in Photosystem 1, which enables it to absorb energy from PS 2. Perhaps prevents stress on PS 2 and delay bleaching of zoox.
