Quick Overview

Kessils most efficient LED module yet!

The Kessil A80 is perfect for nano mixed reef tanks, most soft coral tanks, and fish only tanks too. The design of the A80 integrated the body as the actual heat sink for the module allowing for fanless operation making it totally silent. The LEDs in the A80 are packed into Kessil's Dense Matrix array allowing for deep penetration and high power output while giving you control over the intensity and overall color.

Spectrum Range - 10,000K - 20,000K

  • Integrated heat sink

  • Dimmable

  • Kessil Logic

  • Color Tuneable

  • Canopy Mount included

  • Compatible with Spectral Controller

  • Connect multiple with unit link cables

Product Questions

Would two of these be enough for a IM 25 lagoon? I cannot find any par numbers.
Question by: Jeff C on Nov 4, 2016 8:27:00 AM
Hey there! Two of the A80s would not be sufficient enough PAR for that tank. They are geared towards smaller tanks, such as the IM 8gal. :-)
Answer by: Randy (Admin) on Nov 4, 2016 1:45:00 PM
I have a 72 gallon bow front. Could I do say 3 of these. I have mostly softies with a few lps coral. Won't be doing sps
Question by: Jon Doyle on Nov 6, 2016 12:08:00 PM
Hey there, thanks for reaching out to us! These lights are geared more towards nano/pico type of tanks. I would say that they are going to be under-powered in spread and PAR to properly light your tank. :-) I would recommend at least 2-A360W Tuna Blue fixtures or a single AP700.
Answer by: Randy (Admin) on Nov 8, 2016 4:36:00 PM
Hi, I was wondering whether this light could house simpler sps, such as bird nest and maybe some montipora In a IM 10 gallon? Also what is the par numbers as I have not found any?
Question by: Francisco on Nov 6, 2016 1:14:00 PM
Hey there, great question! In a small 10gal tank like yours, I would say that these lights can sufficiently grow easier demand SPS like the ones you mentioned. Unfortunately, we have not given this light our PAR readings test and do not currently have those levels available at this time. :-)
Answer by: Randy (Admin) on Nov 8, 2016 4:40:00 PM
If I have a 10g tank and I want soft coral and lps like zoanthids, candy cane, and hammer coral should I use this light. Right now I have the current USA orbit marine would this light be a nice upgrade or would it be like the same as I have now.
Question by: Kevin Haynes on Dec 27, 2016 9:29:00 PM
Great question! This light is perfect for LPS and Softies in a nano tank that size! One of our employees has that exact setup. :-)
Answer by: Randy (Admin) on Jan 2, 2017 7:29:00 AM
Hey guys! Your thoughts on a couple of these on a 20 gallon long? 30x12x12?
Question by: Sean on Nov 6, 2016 8:04:00 PM
Hey there, thanks for reaching out to us! I would recommend two of these lights for a 20gal Long tank. :-)
Answer by: Randy (Admin) on Nov 7, 2016 5:26:00 PM
As far as a price point would this light work well on a refugium 8"x15"? I understand that the Kessil purple is best, but is more than double the price. Thanks
Question by: Nick Scaccia on Nov 7, 2016 10:14:00 AM
Hey there, thanks for reaching out to us! I would say that this could be used as a refugium light, however the spectrum it produces would not the most conducive to growing macro algae effectively. :-)
Answer by: Randy (Admin) on Nov 7, 2016 5:56:00 PM
If I was to put this on my frag tank 12x12x5 would I be able to keep sps in the center of the tank and the lps on the outside ?
Question by: william Duong on Jan 24, 2017 12:45:00 PM
Great question! This light is severely under-powered to utilize outside of a 1gal-15gal nano tank. It would not have enough PAR output to cover your size of tank and adequately support SPS. We have an A80 on a small 5gal nano tank in the office and it is just the right size at 75% power. I would recommend a Kessil A360W Tuna instead. :-)
Answer by: Randy (Admin) on Jan 28, 2017 7:37:00 AM
Can I control this with an apex controller? What would I need to do so?
Question by: Aj on Jan 1, 2017 10:23:00 PM
Hey there! You can absolutely control the A80 with the Neptune Apex! All you need is the cable listed below. :-)

Answer by: Randy (Admin) on Jan 4, 2017 3:04:00 PM
Will 3 of these work on a 72inx24inx24in tank?
Question by: Daniel on Nov 3, 2016 2:53:00 PM
Hey there! These lights are geared more towards nano and pico sized tanks. Unfortunately, they are far under powered to cover a tank that size. I would recommend 2-3 Kessil AP700s instead. :-)

Full Details


The new innovative design of the A80 integrated the heatsink for the LEDs right into the body of the light allowing for high heat transfer without the need for a fan. The fanless design makes the module virtually silent in operation making them perfect for bedrooms, offices, and other areas where absolutely no noise may be required. 


Dense Matrix LED

Kessil has spent many years developing and researching what LEDs and has their unique array that they build in-house packing numerous diodes into an area no larger than a dime created a nice even blend of colors and producing a very broad spread of light. With such a tight pack of LEDs, the individual colors are thoroughly mixed before the light even leaves the optic lens reducing hot spots and providing uniform coloration throughout the tank.


Kessil Logic™

After many years of R&D, Kessil Logic™ can be found on all of Kessil's LED lights. The A80 allows you to fine tune the overall color and intensity that the light puts out while keeping a spectrum that will be optimal for coral health and growth. With the Kessil Spectral Controller or your favorite aquarium controller that has a 0-10v reference, you can set complete day cycles that ramp up, down, while keeping a consistent output and spectrum.

  • Small, quiet and works By Still learning on 4/14/2017

    Put this in my refugium that I'm using to grow out xenia as a nutrient export. I like that it doesn't have a fan to create additional noise. The xenia is doing well and it is also maintaining my temporary frag rack and mangroves until I find a better spot for them.
  • Nice light By Kevin on 3/27/2017

    Currently running this light over a 10 gallon tank at work. The A80 is able to put out more than enough light at any color intensity to keep my SPS and LPS corals happy. Works well for Acropora and Monitoporas, the color of my Acans is really nice when the color is low. The controller is a must-have if you want to grow any coral. The controller allows you to set 6 time-stamps to adjust your intensity/color. It also has a built-in acclimation process that allows you to set a starting power output and adjust the number of days the coral acclimates to the light from between 1-14 days. Very nice product, 10/10 would buy again. I'll definitely be running more kessil's in my house now.
  • Great for a Nano, fish only, or quarantine tank By John on 1/6/2017

    I'm currently running this light over my quarantine tank. Wanted to stick with a kessil but at a lower cost than my a360's (which I'm running on my DT) for a quarantine system. Right now, I have a few softies, LPS and SPS corals in my quarantine, and they all seem to like it. As Ryan says in the videos, due to the spectrum of the kessils, it makes it hard to mess up. I love the simplicity!!
