My tanks made it onto Kessil LEDs' video!

They came by our shop to shoot this video, the tanks in the videos are the display tanks that I set up for the store.

I'm super excited and wanted to share! I'm internet famous haha

Awesome vid and Tank. First time seeing those lights and your tank. Impressed by both and your store looks sweet. Congrats, now you just need like 4 million hits and you will be an internet sensation, haha.

This tank looks really terrific! I love these Kessils for the shimmer that comes from the punctual light source, and the color temp. I thought long and hard about ordering one but decided to assemble a PAR30 pendant setup to open up my budget for other components. I hope it provides a similar MH shimmer effect because the overall look of these Amazon Sun lights is killer. The shadows and "mood" is hard to replicate.

Could you expand on your comment in the video as to how angling the light in different directions can provide different spectrums? I don't understand that remark.

I don't understand it either to be honest haha, that's not me in the video that's the store manager, I just work there every once in a while and set up the big display tank that they feature w/ the 4 kessils over it

This is some reassuring confirmation on the use of these Kessils for our tanks. I have a friend in the hydroponics business that suggested these over a year ago and I was skeptical spending that kind of money until I saw someone else try them out first Nice job!!!

There are 2 types of people on this forum. Those that have algae, and those that lie and say they don't.

Beautiful tank! It has real depth to it. The price tag on the light is hard for me to swallow on my tight budget, but the results are so nice I can see how it's worth the investment. Maybe someday! I know I'll be looking into them more...
