Can't se how that is possible.. Even w/ some increased diode efficiency they are still 1/2 the power of a 160.I had heard some people on reef central were bleaching corals with them after replacing their a160 units but it seems like may that have been exaggerated.
Hmm those numbers don't look promising. I had heard some people on reef central were bleaching corals with them after replacing their a160 units but it seems like may that have been exaggerated. Lighting a planted tank is frustrating since there are no good options in the LED market. I am thinking about snagging two gen 1 radion pros for a 120p size aquarium if I can find them at a decent price.
Light is about 7 inches off the top of tank, top of tank to substrate approx. 13 inches for a total of 20 inches light to substrateReally interested to see some actual pictures of these things in action. I am curious if it will be able to grow a carpet in a tank that is 18 inches deep.
Do you know any good ones that can keep up with a high-tech tank? As well as keeping red plants stay to their true colors and not turn green?There's plenty of good options in the LED market for planted tanks, options that are proven to work well.

Thank you for your inquiry! We do not use PAR/Lumens to measure the output of our lights because it is not an accurate measurement for LED output. PAR only measures the visible spectrum and does not distinguish between wavelengths. We are working on compiling our data to publish an easy to understand reading in a single unit.
The A80 is essentially half the output of the A160. Please see our recommendation for the placement of light along with the coverage for the A80 below and let us know if you have any questions. Thanks!
Mixed reef = covers 14” x 14” at 4” from water line
Soft/lps coral= covers 20” x 20” at 6” from water line
Fish only= covers 24” x 24” at 8” from water line
Which I agree with..I was correct in saying from what I have read that par meters don't accurately measure par for kessil lights.
No, actually you aren't correct. With the applicable correction factor, if any is needed, any light can be measured for PAR. Kessil is absolutely no exception, and they literally emailed a steaming pile of bull....
Maybe they can change my mind.. but it is still only 1/2 of the equation as far as I'm concerned....We are working on compiling our data to publish an easy to understand reading in a single unit
Depends on the depth and shape and goal and what you like to look at..So what would you recommend for super high-tech tanks, besides a Kessil? haha

I really have no problem in people using Kessils, just knowing EXACTY what they are getting..
nothing wrong w/ an EVO quad clip on for a square tank..Plenty of ENERGY...
no ramp dimming and the 6500k may not be the correct look for you..
I could give you 1/2 doz reasons not to get it but heck.. only $76....
but if you want to grow plants ..period.. will work fine.. for the right size tank.
Kessils are not "the strongest" PAR output out there..that is part of the point..
Does well for its advanced optics though..
Still awaiting official PAR stats from Kessil (light sarcasm)
