Hello everyone

Finally, I got a chance to start this thread. The build has been in progress since Jan this year but there were way too many ups and downs.

Anyways, I finally have the tank setup and filled.

1 inch acrylic 72 X 60 X 30.

Lights will be Orphek Atlantik V4s.

New system, new adventure.

Hmm, maybe you right
I am back and forth with idea what to get either V4 or G4
My main concern is coverage front to back
Tank is 72-36-24
Based on Orphek i would need 6 panels to cover
But besides crazy price it would be challenge to mount them .

72 X 36 and 24 high? You will need only 4. I know they say each light covers 48 X 40 or something. Realistically it covers 40 X 24 with ease. So 2 rows of 2 should be plenty for your tank.

I am working on mounting plans. I do not want to hang them from the ceiling.

Now that I am thinking you can get away with 3. Just have them run front to back.

Each light will cover 36 X 24 so 3 will cover 36 X 72. That is all you need.
