View Full Version : Current USA Orbit Marine LED

03-31-2015, 11:11 PM

I am debating buying this light.

Awesome features and a great controller.

Not full spectrum but the more I read about lighting requirements for photosynthesis in coral, the less I care about that.

This is going on a 20 gallon long tank.
So very shallow at 13"...probably more like 11 or 12 with sand.

Normally I would look at an LED fixture that incorporates many lower wattage leds as inferior but the reviews on this thing seem to be very positive for shallow tanks.

Anyone have one and want to share their experience?

I have two running in a 10G and a 20G long tank.

In my opinion I think think is a perfect lights for nano especially a tank not that deep

I was able to keep LPS some SPS and most softys.

As for sizes, you might want to consider going for 48" long since 24-36 will only cover the center area for your 20 long not the sides on both ends

Hope this help, if u have any other questions feel free to pm me

FYI current USA will have a pro verson of this which you might be able to keep more SPS or clams

Thanks kindly.

for the record, this will be an lps/zoa tank only.

Do you have any pics up anywhere I could take a peek at?

Might want to check out the new AI prime, also for small tanks, and is controllable with your phone or ipad

prob not the right light for me...looks like a good product though.
