    not sure what you are running your orpheks whites at normally but anything more than 50% on radions whites i assume would bleach any acro.

    im not saying one light is better than another but the way to compare leds is not by how bright they look or what par numbers they show. i personally wouldnt use any other led than radions ( one per 24 x 24 inch section, sps or lps or softies tank) but to each their own
    Agreed, I have a Kessil A360 over my Biocube, had Radions/T5 combow and now Orpheks/T5 Combo. For me Orpheks have worked best with color and growth. I know a few people who tried Orpheks and went back to Radions.

    It's like I always tell people there is no cookie cutter process to this hobby. Every ecosystem is different and what works for me may not work for you.

    If I was to rank them it would be Orphek then Radion the Kessil. I'm waiting for my Orphek compact replacement parts to come in to replace my Kessil A360W.

    Well I worked out a deal with a LFS to see if I could save a Chevron that wasn't eating for a few weeks with them. I got it eating but not enough it seems.
