Orphek has selected 40 reef aquarium layouts with our Atlantik iCon and OR3 LED Bars that we think everyone would love to see!
Besides you will see in this post many possible combinations of Orphek solutions, per example, the iCon series combined with OR3 LED Bars.
Finally, you will also see pictures of tanks of many sizes, with different shapes and in different phases of development.
Some are brand new tanks and some are tanks that hobbyist have been cultivating for quite some time already.
A small note: Orphek writer decided to group photos by themes when writing this post , and to scramble photos within the theme. So if your photo is the last one or in the end of the article it doesn't mean it is less beautiful or less important than all the others! We LOVE all of them!
A quick stop before we start showcasing the tanks...

But back to layouts...with no further due... let's get to them!
From rooms built only for the purpose of having a huge coral reef indoors to small corners in the living room or in an office, Orphek will be found as an excellent choice of LED lighting source.
ONE Orphek in your business
This coral shop in Spain went for a combination of 02 units of Atlantik iCon Compact installed over the tank with the hanging kit that comes with the lights.
It is a simple, easy to install and cost free solution that looks neat over the aquarium.
Corals are looking beautiful and healthy with Atlantik iCon Compact new spectrum*.
You can see on the left corner of the photography that the shop has also Orphek units over their frags!
*In the new Atlantik iCon Compact not only you get a new spectrum, but we have also reorganized the entire LED array, so you can control each color bandwidth separately, allowing you to have more control of the color appearance.
Now, we leave Europe and travel to the Americas...
This shop located in South America - Peru went for a combination of Orphek OR3 LED Bars.
Our OR3 LED Bars have the same LEDs of our Atlantik fixtures! It means that they are adding even more customized high efficiency 5w Dual-Chip power LEDs!
TWO Orphek OR3 LED Bars mounted with our spectacular AURA
Orphek Aura Acrylic Mounting Arms for Orphek OR LED Bars is a top nocht mounting solution indeed! Aura is the state of the art of all Orphek’s mounting solutions, designed specifically for the installation and positioning of Orphek OR LED Bars only.
Made entirely of one block of acrylic, Aura has outstanding strength, stiffness and optical clarity.
In the picture above you can see how neat and polished this layout looks like!
You will find our Aura versatile, anti-rust, heavily-built, multi-functional and really easy to install!
Aura is not only ultra modern, but extremely resistant and it can be also the ultimate gift for your fellow reefers!
THREE Atlantik iCon awesome display
Harry H. is starting his new reef aquarium. Although corals are still very young he nailed the installation of his 06 units! Hanged from the ceiling, he build a structure to hold all of them in the perfect height and width. Great job! Congrats!
In the next photo below, you will also find a 06 units layout, but instead of mounted from the ceiling like the one above, this one was installed from the walls and fixing brackets.
As you can see, Orphek Atlantik iCon fixtures are developed in a way that you can find many different options of installation, all to fit your corals' needs and the space available in the room!
FOUR Mix reef tank light solutions
Our OR3 Reef Aquarium LED Bars are slim, resistant, versatile and fits numerous combination of layouts so it will fit in layouts built even with different brands.
Truth is: they were developed to replace T5/T8 lighting technology for aquariums, for both optimal SPS/LPS coral growth, color and illumination.
In fact, the T5s could go down! But we wanted to show it anyways, so you can see the versatility of these lights. ;-)
FIVE Mixed light solutions, only Orphek!
Perfectly mounted over his tank, these units are giving an evenly spread light and his reef tank looks simply stunning! we simply loved this layout!
SIX Cubes love Atlantik iCon Compact solutions!
Kyle S., aka @716waterboxreef, is starting a brand new cube tank and chose one unit of our Atlantik iCon Compact over his aquarium. This cube tank is going to rock!
What he is getting with one single unit:
- Atlantik iCon Compact LEDs' spectrum for optimal coral growth, color pop & health.
- 42 customized high quality, high efficiency 5w Dual-Chip power LEDs – total of 84 individual LEDs

As we said before...

About Orphek Mounting Kit: This versatile, anti-rust, heavily-built, multi-functional mounting kit will blow your mind! Not only that, it can be also the ultimate gift for your fellow reefers! The major components of this kit are made of high quality thick aluminum strong enough to support the weight of our Atlantik iCon!
No wires, no mess. Uncluttered look indeed!
SEVEN Frags love Orphek!
Above this frag tank you can see 02 units of Atlantik iCon installed from the ceiling.
We loved the fact that you can still see the sone work on the wall behind the tank and the blue spectrum of the lights over the corals looks really cool!
Paul Pady has set his frag display tank with one unit of Atlantik iCon. And although he hasn't placed his corals yet, we believe he managed to built a very neat and organized space for fragging!
In the next picture you will see that Neal W. has opted to mount his OR3 Reef Aquarium LED Bars over his frag tank.
As you all know... Our OR3 comes with new LEDs 5w Dual-Chip same LEDs we are offering in our Atlantik iCon fixtures!!
EIGHT 2 & 2 Orpheks!
Tomasz Ł. also is starting his tank with 02 units of Atlantik iCon and 2 units of OR3 120 Blue Plus
In the next picture Jeff H. has built a clever center piece to place his Orphek units.
Andy W. is starting a new tank and he is using a layout that many has chosen 2 & 2 rocks!
NINE 2 & 1 Orpheks!
In the next picture Les M. has exactly the same units, but they were mounted closer to the tank and with a different mounting system.
TEN When a 220 cube reef tank looks like a piece of art!
Orphek not only made the flat polish quality to the edges and the super high clarity of this rimless tank look even more beautiful, but it made the colors of their corals pop, bringing significant appeal to this tank.
ELEVEN The versatility of the OR3 LED Bars!
You can add as many as you wish! These OR3 Reef Aquarium LED Bars are loved by clients due to its versatility, performance and price!
Let's see tanks lighted ONLY BY ORPHEK LED BARS!
Cito R. has a 80 gallon tank lighted by a combination of deep blue 3 blue plus 1 reef day plus very happy the colors are amazing!
Karl S. sent us the picture of his layout combining many OR3 LED Bars and a nice feedback:
"My tank is an infant at 5months old . Thanks to Orphek lighting and Aquaforest products Here with Blue plus, Ultra violet and the new Blue Sky. Orphek lighting1200mm 2 x Blue plus / 2 x reef day / 1 x ultraviolet / 1 x Blue sky .... stunning. Thank you Orphek... Tommy and your team you guys rock"
Chris H. also sent photos of his tank and his feedback. We like to showcase different aquarium designs, so this one is built in and it looks like it is dividing spaces.
"My final bar arrived (Reef Day Plus 150). Thanks to Tommy for his help in getting my order sorted. I now have x2 Sky Blue bars and x1 Reef Day Plus over my softy only tank. Lights are 15" off the water. Apology for the poor photos, I can never do my tank justice!"
No need to apologize! what we suggest is our 52mm Extra Wide Coral Lens Kit for Smartphones and DSLR camera
WHY TO BUY ORPHEK CORAL LENS KIT FOR BOTH SMARTPHONES AND CAMERAS?
Because your pictures will look like your aquarium in real life for the first time!
If you are a reefer with a smartphone you know that no matter how you good you are in taking photos, the pictures you take with smartphones never look exactly how your aquarium really are…
BUT, combining our 15,000k orange lens with our 20,000k yellow lens you will be able to reproduce the exact natural look of your aquarium in your pictures!
Truth is, you don’t even need to be an experienced photographer to take amazing photos of your corals because you will get professional quality to your pictures due to our special lens!
