Alright guys, it's that time of the week to revisit some of your questions!

In today's R2R FAQ, Ryan answers questions from @reeferfoxx , @Bronx19 , @Velcro , @Ignitros , @Abhishek , @lactose , @Bruce Burnett ! We're talking about things like using a single light over deeper tanks, max wattages of the Atlantik V4, and if we'll be carrying the compact version. :)

Thanks so much for your questions and comments! Keep them coming!
My family never understands why I get so excited when I am 'BRStv' famous and my question is covered in the FAQ videos. Thank you again for all the videos and the answers.

Wondering whether to go Orphek or Radion. Have a 66 by 22 by 30 inch deep. Thinking of compacts vs xr30 Pro Gen 4. Any thoughts? Redoing tank. Will mostly be sps.

I cant see how a Radion would be any match for the number of LEDs in the Orphek. To put it bluntly, a **** tonne of point sources > two point sources.

If it's 66 " long you'll need a full size and maybe more.Or 3 compacts should give you ample coverage.

My tank is 72 x 30 wide x 24 deep - 6" of the 30 wide is set into the wall so really a 6x2x2 - I currently have an 8x80w ATI hybrid which is awesome but I do like the look of these.

I have a mixed reef but it is Heavy SPS - Orphek have said 2 V4 units would be enough - what's the thoughts on here? Add to the fact they are currently including a free gateway and the offer is looking even more promising :)

Thanks

Mark
