Most beautiful and elegant aquascape reef tanks layouts for living areas with Orphek Atlantik iCon Reef LED Lighting
Today's post is about integration of reef aquariums as elegant, creative, serene and even striking decorative pieces, and how clients included Orphek Atlantik iCon in their projects.
Reef tanks & interior design
Although there are many ways to create ambiance, divide, design and decorate the interior of a home, there is nothing more inspirational and elevating than a reef aquascape aquarium as reef tanks introduce nature to the space. A story told by living, breathing life.
We chose among many many pictures, the ones we felt that showcases elegance and skills.
As you all know aquascaping a saltwater reef tank is not an easy hobby, but once you get it, there are endless possibilities of layouts, from small to exquisite large tanks.
For starters, the most important thing above all is setting up a marine aquarium with high-quality healthy corals and proper lighting. In the past aquascapers used large amounts of live rock, but today modern reef aquaria takes a minimalist approach to its design.
We had been receiving many requests for our LED solutions from both aqua and reefscaping hobbyist eager to upgrade their high-end tanks.
The Atlantik iCon is the answer and you will see why.
We will take you to a tour into some of our clients residencies by assembling here photos that they have already shared in public (social medias).
You will see how they were integrated/ had their lights displayed and plunge into these awesome tanks!
Stanley Kubrick's spaceship?
@emotional_nudism (Instagram) has published outstanding photos of a reef tank in a room that to us, movie fans, it reminds of Stanley Kubrick's spaceship interior.
In the next photo gallery you will be able to see the different phases of the development of this project:
In this is an ambient light sources were chosen both carefully and professionally, playing a key role in the decor, as it was used to create an exquisite atmosphere (you can see that for the fact that the spaces are lighted by many kind of light sources and shapes).
Orphek Atlantik iCon units were chosen for the minimalistic reef aquascape tank due to its conceptual design and performance. It is indeed a spectacular solution where the integration of light sources, conceptual design, and architectural elements are also desired.
The Atlantik iCon is made of 3 layers of acrylic, high quality aluminum alloy and glass lens therefore, the light coverage and spread are limited to the area of the tank, avoiding loss and dissipation of luminance.
It means that tank designers when including the Orphek Atlantik iCon solution in a lighting design project can rely on these factors:
- It has unique contemporary, sleek design and layout versatility, that can even contribute as an active component in the design of the space, enhancing its appearance.
- It renders perfect spread for 43″x 25″ ( 110cm x 65cm) SPS & LPS coral reef aquariums & stability of luminance & controlled light dissipation.
- It is mesmerizing & the best spectrum ever developed by Orphek for optimal coral growth, color pop & health.
- It was developed to render unprecedented & unparalleled most natural appearance to tanks form 10K to 50K, providing the best PAR/PUR per watt and wide spectrum from UV (380nm – 740nm).
This second project is a good example of ways to integrate light sources and use different mounting solutions (via @orphek.led).
There is a similar branching minimalist reef aquascape tank, and 4 Atlantiks placed in a customized hanging structure coming from the ceiling.
Less minimalist, but beautiful Argentinian coralscape layout
Client in Argentina, South America (via @orphek.led)
In this project client placed the reef tank in a corner of the room dividing spaces. The aquarium contains a vast number of corals providing a more complex and dominating piece of decor to a minimalistic general interior design.
Four Orphek Atlantik units were totally integrated in the living room placed inside a customized centerpiece structure resulting in an elegant finishing to the project.

In this second project you can also see the development of the tank where the base is placed in the empty tank and later, with all corals place and thriving beautifully.
