Enhancing Reef Aquariums: The Magic of Atlantik and OR3 LED Lights in Six Stunning Displays


Whether multiple coral reef aquarium displays in business settings, research centers or stunning aquariums in the living rooms of our clients, Orphek stands out as the ultimate choice for LED lighting solutions for its quality, performance and sleek design.

We've brought together five magnificent aquariums and installations that have seamlessly integrated Orphek lights into their projects/displays, creating a truly breathtaking experience to die for!

So let’s see how clients had their lights displayed; how they were integrated; and take a look at these awesome tanks and corals!

ONE Orphek enhancing the beauty of your business

Several units of elegant sleek Atlantik's were expertly positioned above the 7 stunning coral tank displays at the Detroit Reef Club. (Detroit Reef Club has also several displays featuring Orphek OR LED Bars)

Orphek elevated the entire ambiance: These Atlantik units not only enhanced the flawless refinement of the tank's rimless structure and its remarkably clear edges, but also intensified the vibrancy of the coral colors, adding substantial allure to the tanks.

Detroit Reef Club (aka @detroit_reef_club) is a cutting edge coral and fish importer & Aquaculture Center focused on providing quality marine livestock located in Ferndale, MI - USA.

While its aesthetic integration with the shop's design is certainly noteworthy, Orphek was ultimately selected for its exceptional performance:

Atlantik iCon spectrum

Orphek has researched and developed each channel of the Atlantik iCon with a combination of LEDs colors and quantity based on the needs of corals; respecting their natural response to light wavelengths; and to provide the best color pop, health and growth spectrum, while giving tanks the natural look, mimicking nature at its fullest.

Programming & monitoring

Furthermore, shops owners possess the capability to individually program multiple Atlantik iCon units, either individually, in groups or unison, all conveniently managed through the Orphek App. Orphek App.

TWO Research centers & coral farming

Research centers and coral farm/husbandry facilities must maintain pristine rooms, attaining a high level of sophisticated environmental control necessary for simulating conditions related to temperatures, climates, and more. Additionally, these facilities typically house numerous tanks, necessitating a substantial number of lights above their tanks.

The MERL - The Minderoo Foundation Exmouth Research Lab showcases the Orphek Atlantik iCon above each tank due to the fact that the Atlantik iCon is equipped with the most advanced features and intelligent control, offering unparalleled control over lighting parameters.

From color temperature adjustment to customizable intensity and timing, researchers at MERL can fine-tune the lighting to mimic natural conditions and optimize health and growth of marine creatures.

Orphek was chosen by MERL because it develops products and solutions that answer to the needs of the living creatures in captive aquariums, delivering perfect integration of light sources with Nature and all architectural elements of any project, no matter how complex they are and the challenges they face.

Further more, Orphek Atlantik iCon LED lighting solution relying on decades of academic research, developed and engineered with The One and Only Real Moon Cycle in LED Reef lighting Solutions reproducing Nature at its fullest.

Atlantik iCon is also the best LED lighting technology for coral growth, health, color, spawning and biological clock correction.

THREE Orphek OR3 LED Bars mounted with our spectacular AURA

Contemporary Italian design is recognized for harmonizing luxury, high-quality elements with a simplicity, and our Italian client, Matteo Fusco embodied this concept when setting up his amazing 400 liter reef tank.

Matteo ingeniously integrated 6 units of Orphek's slim & sleek OR3 LED Bars and added elegance by mounting them with AURA (the state of the art of all Orphek’s mounting solutions, designed specifically for the installation and positioning of Orphek OR LED Bars exclusively).

He also made the wise choice to use Orphek's upmost advanced technology for LED Bars and combined 6 OR3 LED Bars with the spectrums of his choice*, creating his very own customized fixture and upgrading his OR3 LED Bars to iCon technology - programming, controlling and dimming them with Orphek Osix smart device via Orphek App.

*Matteo's spectrums of choice: 2 OR3 Reef Day Plus + 2 OR3 Sky Blue + 1 OR3 Blue Plus + 1 OR3 UV/Violet.

The killer combination! This tank not only have the most advanced technology for reef LED lighting, but also most elegant and the top-notch mounting technology ever created by Orphek.

FOUR Atlantik iCon for large Aquariums

Presenting a captivating exhibition tank, this aquarium is designed in a peninsula style that offers a panoramic view from three sides. Crafted from 3/4″ low-iron glass, the tank dimensions are 80″ x 40″ x 30", showcasing an expansive capacity of 400 US gallons.

The visual allure is amplified by the strategic suspension of five Atlantik iCon units, ingeniously hung with custom-crafted 80/20 T-Slot Aluminum rails.

This thoughtful arrangement not only lends a sleek and uncluttered appearance to the remarkable aquarium, but also ensures effortless access for cleaning, maintenance, and feeding tasks.

While personal preferences play a role in coral color selection, having an understanding of how different coral colors interact with one another, and recognizing which colors are complementary or similar, assists aquascapers in creating harmonious and visually appealing aquascape layouts and one of the most remarkable aspects of this reef tank is the vibrant colors exhibited by his corals.

Thanks to the Atlantik iCon, client has achieved a stunning array of hues that captivate the eye.

The spectrums provided by the Atlantik iCon is instrumental in enhancing coral coloration. This carefully designed spectrum promotes the production of pigments like chlorophyll and carotenoids, which are responsible for the vivid and natural coloration seen in the corals. From cool blue and green hues, striking vibrant yellow and oranges, to intense purples, the color palette on display is simply breathtaking.

Furthermore, the exceptional PAR output of the Atlantik iCon ensures that corals receive ample light energy for photosynthesis. This translates into healthy growth and optimal pigment production, resulting in corals that truly pop with life and vibrancy.

Five Full transparence

Another beautiful reef aquarium hails from Italy, showcasing the seamless integration of Orphek LED lighting and mounting solutions—a combination that truly captured our admiration.

Alessio Centamore's 45X45X40 cm aquarium strikes beauty by his skilled experience in reefing and also by the choice to go with full transparence. One unit of Atlantik iCon Compact was mounted with Aura to enhance his rimless tank.
