OR3 Reef Aquarium LED Bars Showcase 5

OR3 Reef Aquarium LED Bars Showcase 5

We have been showing that Orphek Hybrid OR3 LED Bars can be combined with our Atlantik, Atlantik Compact or any other LED lighting brands.

This year, like the last one, we are going to continue to bring new tank displays and showcase our OR3 Reef Aquarium LED Bars and how you can combine many types of our OR3 Bars like you used to do with T5s.

Also, we will give you ideas on how to mix our OR3 LED Bars with other Orphek LED lighting solutions for extra coverage;

And finally, how to mix them with other brands that are not giving you the desired/need amount of light for your corals.

In case you missed our last year's post, check the links below.

Our Atlantik iCon and Atlantik iCon Compact are our newest generation of the Atlantik Series. If you have previous versions you can UPGRADE to iCON.

So let's see what we brought for you today!

Here client is mixing Orphek OR3 Blue Plus with his Hydra 26 HD for an extra Wide Blue/Violet spectrum 400-500nm for SPS/LPS/Soft to give a boost of coral growth and wide fluorescent coral pop.

When fragging corals you should also consider a combination of our Atlantik with OR3 Blue Plus LED Bar to get the maximum power for your frag tank with full coverage.

Theodoris is starting a new reef aquarium in his home in Greece and he chose a combination of orphek OR3 LED Bars: 8 units of our OR3 90 LED bar combined with - 4 units of our OR3 Blue Plus + 2 UV Violet and 2 units of our OR3 Reef Day. We can't wait to see the corals in it!


Our OR3 Reef Aquarium LED Bars are the most cost efficiency options for coral farms, not to mention their versatility with distinctly different spectral qualities to be combined or added to previous owned lights.

OR2 150/120/90/60 Reef LED Lighting X T5
Orphek has been offering panel style LED lighting solutions for the last 10 years, providing a highly diffused light source and delivering the perfect intensity and spectrum to the reef aquarium in the form of the Atlantik series.

Now combined with our OR3 you can get the ultimate spectrum as if you were using T5s!

The idea was to develop an affordable LED, offering a T5 – like coverage length of the tank, but has all the efficiency, spectrum choice and power associated with LED technology with the following benefits:

  • OR3 bar LEDs typically use 50% less power consumption than T5.
  • Unlike T5 bulbs, which need to be replaced very 6-12 months, LEDs require no maintenance.
  • There is no new acclimation period required for corals – there is with T5 replacement for new bulbs.
  • OR3 bar LEDs have an output of around 2 x that of a comparable T5 bulb – meaning less units are required to fully illuminate the aquarium.
  • OR3 heat sink is around 41C and the heat is dispersed upwards rather than heating the aquarium water.
  • Each OR3 bar has multiple LED color chips providing a balanced spectrum for each bar.
  • OR3 LEDs penetrate the water column giving better performance at depth, providing a shimmer effect to give the aquarium a sharper, colorful visual appearance.
  • OR3 bar LEDs come as standard in 2 spectrum choices with customized options available for special order.
  • Just 2 x OR3 bars, a combination of 1 x Reef Day Plus and 1 x Blue Plus will deliver PAR of ~400 at the surface and ~250 + mid aquarium mounted 20cm above the water level.
