How is the Orbit Marine LED lighting working for you? We just found out about it, and I'm looking around the forums to see who has it! Gorgeous photos.

Your tank is beautiful! Enjoying the pics.
Also interested because I have the Orbit lighting on a mini reef/frag tank. Only a few frags in it and the monti cap is much lighter in color than in my DT. Thought it was not enough light, but maybe it's much more light. Are you using the program that came on the light controller?

Oh btw, I added an Aquatic life Reef Edge to addmire spectrum but I don't think it helps at all lol. Cause I dont't use both on 100%. But before I added the Aquatic Life Reef Edge, My setting was 100%Blue and
65% White for 8 hours. I dont have that much SPS but they do grow. Other
reefers are surprised too..so I guess this light works for me.

I've been reading lots of reviews that talk about needing a pair for a 90g+ tank - but you say you aren't running the orbits at 100%? But looking at photos, sounds like you've got a happy, healthy mix. And like you, this is our first SW.

Yeah..well I guess every tank is different or MAYBE I don't get that much growth compared other tanks with different lights..I don't know butI believe there are lots of factors for the corals to grow and be happy. I think my corals are happy, that's thr most important thing for me...Don't fix if it's not broken.

Man, I was so close to buying this lens this morning because of your post and it's glowing reviews online. Had it in my cart and almost pulled the trigger. But then I thought, do I want this lens or those corals I saw at Neptune's yesterday...

If it was an Amazon prime purchase I think I would have purchased before I thought. For now will buy neither corals nor lens :(

Any ideas on the prices of corals there compared to LFS?


Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
I would expect comparable pricing for comparable corals. There will likely be some rare pieces that you don't normally see at the LFS though.
