Yup the metal arm is heavy, that's why I bought it and never installed yet. I plan to build/buy a extension arm and mount it on the actual stand.


Thanks huhu. Any thoughts on A80 vs A160 for 12" high tech cube?

A80 is cheap, small, and simple looking. You can go for that one and later when you upgrade your tank size, and still want a Kessil, they may come out with something better then.

That's a good point. My main concern is light output. At 15w it should easily replace 9w 12" finnex esp considering supposed better optics.

Thanks!
For my goals and plants, it is quite adequate.
Intensity is at about 80 %, I will be ramping it up to about 90% in the near future.

Don't worry about the tank.
It is not even near complete.

The A80 (15watts) is on high and the A160WE is on low (40watt is max).

We don't notice much difference.
Perfect!

Here's a video shot by George Farmer of Thang To's tank that uses Kessils.

Here's the setup of one of our 15 gallon systems featuring the A80. We're working on an update video.

You know, I really want to put the tuna sun A80 on my freshwater 9 gallon aquastyle tank... I love the look of the lighting arm though only problem is, the one led isn't strong enough and two is off center so the light is stronger on one corner only
