    THE ORPHEK PRIZES:

    The PR-25 (dimmable!)

    The PR-25 is a PAR38 formfactor bulb (screws into a normal light socket) and is a 70-150w halide pendant replacement. The PR-25 LED pendant produces a similar amount of PUR (photosynthetically usable radiation) as does a 150w metal halide bulb, with excellent spread from 60 degree ‘frosted’/honeycomb optics (each bulb covers ~16x16x16" @ 12" suspension height). Containing 12 diodes running at 2 watts each and available in various color combinations, the PR-25 is an excellent, cost effective and efficient choice for nano and mid-sized aquariums. The PUR ratio is so high than ~50-60 PAR under the PR-25 is equal to ~150 PAR under a 14k halide bulb. Even better, the PR-25 is dimmable with a common household dimmer!

    WARNING: the PUR output of the PR-25 is the highest PUR available from an emitter that we're aware of, and you WILL bleach your coral with this light if you are not careful. It will not appear to your eye to emit such a high amount of energy, but when switching to this bulb double the distance from the MH bulb that it is replacing and slowly lower it over 2-3 weeks!

    Available in two color options in 110v or 220v (see spectrographs):
    - 6 blue / 4 white / 2 UV (~”20k” with UV for enhanced color)
    - 6 blue / 6 white (~”14k”)

    I traditionally give 1 extension on video contests for the late-comers. I appreciate your support.

    FYI - my apologies for the double email on the extension. The script was on auto-pilot while I was not. :p
