Check shipping to AUS but that's a throwaway price. You just can't beat it. Weak part of these guys are a very few drivers have gone bad, but they can be easily replaced by a reputable importer.

Day 2 of using Kessil lights and my corals are loving it. It brings out the colors nicely even though I used my iPhone 5 camera. I bought an Aqua Illumination Vega originally thinking I would do a cube reef but ended up with a standard 60 gallon. Instead of buying a second Vega I bought two Kessils. Couldn't be happier with my decision.

metal halide vs led

I am a satellite communications engineer and my company does a lot of work for Motorola. They are selling some new communications technology I am involved in. Australia is one of the markets that they think will benefit from this tech. This is for very remote communications work, so my best guess is inland. Don't know yet.
