After bringing the Atlantik series one step forward by upgrading it with a new V4 spectrum, Orphek is now introducing its newest 24″ Slim Line lights for both Reef and Planted Aquariums. Orphek claims that their lights “differ from all slims lights offered in the market today because they are built with the same design and quality of the Atlantik series, made of full body acrylic, a rugged aluminum heat sink and thick polished acrylic lens cover” but does differing make them better?
The slim line was designed to works as a supplemental LED light or as the primary light source for smaller aquariums. The light is compact with a footprint of 23.6″ x 3.1″ x 2.0″ (L600 x W80 x H50mm) and a light spread of 40″ L x 11.8″ W and up to 24″ depending on how high the light is placed above the water. The slim line can be hung from the ceiling or inside of an aquarium canopy with the included hanging kit. With a little creativity we imagine that it may be possible to hard mount the slim line to the inside of a canopy by using 4 long machine screws though the canopy lid. MORE
