    I have a 25x18x18 office tank which is growing beautifully, however I feel that the colors of the plants specifically red plants are not vibrant enough. Kessil put out this A360X Refugium light which boasts super high spectrum of blue and red lighting for optimal plant growth. I compared it to...

    Hi, I have just received my Tuna Suns and hooked them up (still need to figure out the controller), but the lights are so dim I can look right into them and not flinch. Is this correct? I have the intensity set both on controller and manually on the lights to max intensity... Any suggestions...

    Hello, I've been a longtime member, but haven't really posted much recently. I figured I would start again with this new aquascape. I've made several attempts at scapes for the past 5 years, but really haven't settled on one until now. Before I bought this UNS 60U tank in January, I had a...

    I have two 45 gallon Osaka tanks that I've done a journal on here: https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/12-tank-journals/1302385-two-old-osaka-cubes-getting-makeover.html Tanks are 24"x18"x24" tall. With these being open top and having powerful airstones that come on periodically, I feel like my...

    Hi, Was getting a new light for a planted tank. The LFS has many for sale and I saw two that caught my interest - the Fluval plant spectrum lights and Kessil lights. Which one is better, and if so, why? Thanks.

    Just got my 160s turned on and was wondering if anyone could help with programming and setting intensity and color temp in relation with a Apex Neptune.

    I want to get a new light for my tank since my current on is pretty dim (Dennerle power led 5.0). I'm split between the Kessil A80 Tuna Sun and the Twinstar 300e. Can anyone share experiences or recommendations? Cheers

    Hi Everyone, Here is my 9 foot planted aro tank (109" x 24" x 24"). I've run it with 12 T5s for years and C02 and it's done great. That is, until the ballast in my Tek Light died this week. Now I'd like to upgrade to LEDs. Ideally, I'd like to get some Kessil a160s ... but I'd need 5...

    Hello Everyone, I have a Kessil A160WE tuna sun light with a spec controller. I'm fairly new to planted tanks and I just wanted to see what other people have set for their light schedule at. My tank is a 20 gal betta sorority planted tank. I've included a picture below. My current schedule is...

    I've had a 20 gallon long up and running for a couple years now. Its come and gone with different scapes, never really amounting to anything. It usually just ends up being an over grown dutch mess and I actually kinda dig it. 20 gallon setup: Finnex Planted+ 24/7 GLA Gro Reg. Atomic Diffuser...

    I've had a 75 gallon tank with mineralized river-run capped with sand substrate, two Kessil a160we LEDs, but i'm having trouble reaching high enough levels of co2, even to prevent higher lighting levels of algae. I use a 20lb canister with a simple timed solenoid regulator and I've been using a...

    I have a Fluval Chi with a betta, oto, nerite snail, and some ghost shrimp. It is lightly planted with a small heater but the stock light/filter unit really isn't designed for a planted tank. My goal is a fairly high-tech planted tank with a few critters. If things go well with this tank, I...

    Well I have been researching a while and have been planning to start a planted tank. I have some marginal experience from years ago. Last time I had a DIY yeast system. I would like to try pressurized CO2, but still contemplating low tech. Here is what I plan to get so far Mr Aqua low iron...
