Kessil A80 - Have used on tanks ranging from Fluval Spec 3 (12) up to 60 Litres, adore the lighting and really enjoy the "shimmer" on the surface that the light provides. I also have the Spectral Controller that I won on an Instagram giveaway and love the controllability.


Kessil A360WE - Used on RSM 130D and also on 60 Litre SPS Canyon i am about to set up. Same as above apart from I purchased the Controller X for this one, so i can get fancy with storms, clouds etc with the lighting

Thanks:

Radion XR15 Blue I believe it's called, the new one.

It looks great, no idea how good it will be though cos I haven't even switched it on yet  :D

My first led light btw

@Ratvan I always intended going kessil if I went the led route too Matt, for the shimmer more than anything but the reported lenses/spread of these new radions seemed like a better fit for my lighting plan. (Which, no surprises here, will be a tad off the wall, outside the box, "different"  :D )

I prefer the pendant design as well aesthetically, although I really want to try out the Orphek LED Light bars

Yes those look very good, especially the blue/violet one, and I also want a good look at the new Philips CoralCare v2 when it finally gets released (June allegedly, who knows with COVID etc...)

edit: also the Maxpect RSX series with the adjustable wing thingies!

2x Hydra26HD on Red Sea reefer 250. Nice lights, but still getting to grips with getting the corals to flourish. Softies are doing great though. Can’t blame the lights , but need to keep an eye on KH
