Feel free to try mine on your tank. I'm itching to know if it'll cover my cube 50x50x40 cm on its own with decent par for some softies Los and a few spa on rock top...
Appreciate your input.

I actually like the guy too...Its the tank that I paid for that I have a problem with.

anyway. old story that. Im happy with the tank now, I just wish I didnt have to do so much work because it was meant to be built and finished at the warehouse. I wouldve gladly paid a couple of 100 more just to have a decent silicone job.

WW, please take this as constructive criticism to improve your final product. Building a tank is not just sticking glass with silicone. Thanks.

ur one happy camper, with ur new orpheks
btw, the orpheks burn lps
its been atleast 2 months that I've had them, and even slight increase in the timings and my corals bleach
actually, I left them on for 3-4 hrs extra on ONE day, and they were bleached, my fault but, damn the lights r powerful
excellent for the money too

All my LPS are in the shade of the plating table coral except a couple that are plump as hell under the orpheks ;)

But Yes, 1 Wellso is bleached out totally but now recovering in the shade of an old apple tree :D

Mounted both the Orpheks must say one difference I find is the shimmer which is excellant.
The UV brings out blue color more.Worth a buy anytime.Diehard Orphek Fan....

Ok , I know I missed the group train by a long shot, but how much are they? I have a dymax and would love to convert the T5 x2 tubes to LED and am looking to replace the 150w halide x2 over to HO LED.

Or just buy a replacememt unit in one which I have seen hanging from many of your tank threads on the forum.

I'm green with envy now so please PM me some budget cost so I can consider it for next time when I have saved up.....probably 2025 at this rate! But if I know how much, I could sell mt Dymax and convince the wife to upgrade.
