I have a 100 gallon corner bowed tank 24 inches deep with 2 Kessil 160. Looking to add. Not so happy with light out put. Not enough red. Any suggestions?
Plants are doing well but could have better color.
Thanks for your input!!

Hi Theresa,

Welcome to TPT!

To make the 'reds' and / or 'blues' "pop" your light source needs either more output in the red and / or blue spectrum. Although the Kessil 160 seems to have adequate blue output the red seems to be deficient. If you want to augment with T5HO I would recommend the Giesemann Powerchrome Aquaflora lamps to highlight the red and blue colours of your fish and plants.
