I'll be following this build for sure.



We have the rimless as well.
I think its in the photography section.

We purchased the A160 Kessils and they work great on some plants, but some plants seem to burn from a hot spot.

If I make a salad bowl shaped circular arena of plants with the A160WE, then the hot spot has to hit the bottom centerfield area.
The edges of the light's throw travels to what would be outer plants that come much closer to the top.
-they dont mind it up there.

- The Kessil A160WE works well in our 24x24x24"high cube, but i could see it used in a 30x30x24"high as well.
It depends on what plants for are used for sure.

Anyways, we're about to snag 2x Kessil A80 fanless 15watt LED for this build.
It's either 2x 40watt Kessil model A160WE on low or 2x new Kessil A80 15 watt.

No filters used yet on that Kessil A160WE 40watt build pleco project.
I may need something if I keep beating up my anubias.
They have some holes.
-it could be water related.

I think your radions would destroy me with light.
How big is your tank with radions?

I'm dealing with two 16inch high tank builds.
The other is a 24 high.

I chose Kessil due to the "look".
The out-of-the-way coffee mug shape sold me.
