Kessil LED

I've been hearing about these Kessil LED's a lot, people been saying good things that they grow coral and all. Does anyone on here have a Kessil? Thinking about buying one. My par 38 doesn't seem to grow the corals all too well in my 15 gallon.

I have the a150 "ocean blue" over my 20 gallon and love it. The spectrum and shimmer is amazing.

Nice, I love those. Op kessils will grow anything you like, and will also make you tank look amazing with their shimmer. I also happen to think they give a pretty clean overall look too, there pretty sleek

Very nice shots bribo, impressed with the whole tank.

Do you find the light is significantly less on the sides rather than directly under the fixture? That is on concern that kept me from going with a pendant light like that.

Thanks!

Haha for crappy iPhone pics they aren't bad. Thanks Carey! Um no I don't see any shadowing on the sides really. My tank is only 24" long but is completely covered. You'd probably need a second on anything longer than that though. But yeah quite a wide spread on the little cannon

Tank looks great. Is that the only light you have on your tank.

I'd think 2 as they cover around 24"x 24" each. Either way you go, kessil or Chinese, you will be able to keep anything
