    Hi
    I have been reading about the new V4 units ,is there any tanks under these to show the benefits to corals .I am running 2 x v3 and 2 radions was looking to putting one or two more units on my tank I am aware that the spectrum will be different but hope I can get a balance with the V3 I'm currently using.Also are there any discounts for UK customers or will they have to be shipped from the US.

    Just wondering how do does the Atlantiks compare to your Radions? Do you see anything improvement vise versa? I'm looking to upgrade to V4 as well or going to Radion completely.

    Thats what im trying to determine which way to go because of the tank size i am not going radions it would need too many units its betwn ATI power module or another orphek the question with orpheks as i had issues with but like the light spectrum and wanted to see some results with the V4 as its a different spectrum which is untested or just get another V3.

    I've been told that Atlantik V4 is the closest thing to T5. But I haven't seen any study on that. Also, there is a very small customer base in the reefing community/forum. So it's hard to get any feedback, not sure if that's the reason why my costumer service experience with the manufacturer hasn't been all that great. And that's another reason for me to hesitate to purchase from them again.

    You have to private message your experience with the V4?

    Hi
    I have decided which way to go with the lights , I am keeping the 2 x V3 which are mounted on DD rails across the front/middle and have ordered a V4 to go on the back with wide lenses should be ok .The difference in spectrum will be similar to using halides and T5's ( hopefully).So removing the 2 radions it will be equivalent in power use costs. I have a iquatics stainless steel hanging rails already fitted so there will be no need to hang from the ceiling which I wanted to avoid.
    thanks Bill
