Overprice and lasts just past warranty By Drew on 6/7/2014Drew wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThis product has stunning reviews but they will find out it is a consumer item that will last just past warranty, followed by lip service customer service.
They really just wanted sell me another one. Return has been sitting in California for two week with bla blah blah coming back from them and no lamp. I canceled replacement and putting 10 year old sunpod in garage back in use.
BRS usually has excellent products to pick from. This is not one of them. Kessil needs to find another customer!!!!
Update amazon sun By Robert on 3/9/2014Robert would recommend this product to a friendAfter 3 months switched from planted tank to 30 gallon reef tank, looks amazing, still super quiet, i wont buy any lights but kessil from now on
Awesome By Will on 3/4/2014Will would recommend this product to a friendBought a pair of the ocean blues for my 55G and they're awesome. I'm switching from a T5 fixture and metal halid/cheap experiment and its worlds better. The shimmer is perfect. Highly recommend!!
Amazing Light By Kristopher on 3/3/2014Kristopher would recommend this product to a friendI changed my biocube from the standard lights to a rimless version with the Kessil Sky Blue with a gooseneck. The light is amazing, easy to install, and looks sleek and runs super quiet. My wife even commented that the light made the tank look "less like a salty crusty thing" and more like "a sophisticated piece that looks like it belongs in here". I highly recommend, my corals showed greater polyp extension even after only an hour under the lights.
Good Bang For Your Buck By Justin on 2/6/2014Justin would recommend this product to a friendI have JUST ONE of these over a 29 gallon reef with soft and lps corals that THRIVE! Very nice coloring and the corals love it. I've had it for over a year no problems with any of my corals. Highly recommended!
Very Bright and small,Okay Spectrum By Chezare on 1/30/2014Chezare would recommend this product to a friendGot the LEDS about a month ago. They are very bright and coral seemed to enjoy them. I found pendants were the way to go because of the odd shape of my 92 Gallon Corner tank. But if your looking at the sky blues don't get them, get the ocean blues. The sky blues are simply too blue. If i could i would return the sky blues in exchange for the ocean blues. Another thing the lights are a little loud. The fans can be heard when there is no other noise in the living room. Overall the lights are very bright but are to white and loud.
Great Light By Ezra on 1/27/2014Ezra would recommend this product to a friendI have a mix of this kessil and metal halide on my 65 gallon the growth rate on the side with the LED is great. I also have to say the shimmer is outstanding. These light run quiet and i have had no issues with the light.
Wow...just wow! By Robert on 12/18/2013Robert would recommend this product to a friendBeen using the amazon sun on my freshwater tank and the plant growth is amazing(dwarf baby tears actualy spreading into a carpet). Day one you will be sold, seeing the shadow of a 1/2 inch long glass shrimps hair thin antenae is crazy. I found my best distance off the water in a 48x18x21 is about 5 inches. You should get one for every 12 inches of tank, seems like small coverage but trust me these are way worth the price (and i am certainly a little under middle class job) the apex controller (in about 15 seconds) recognised them as lights and imediately put them on a timer, awesome... Penetrates glass with a heavy white film without even reducing half the light. Get one or two extra black zip ties for the wires and you'll be set and verry happy! Cant wait to use the other kinds on a reef tank.
awesome light By chuckthetang on 12/8/2013chuckthetang would recommend this product to a friendbeen using them now for over a year. I have two over a 54 corner coral growth has been good with sps lps and softies. Lets not forget to mention that my electric was much lower after switching to these from metal halides !!!
Awsome light By Bill on 11/15/2013Bill would recommend this product to a friendGot this for my nano project. Just for fun turned off my TEK 4 bulb fixture running 3 ATI blue plus and a coral plus bulb. Jaw dropping color popping from my corals. Haven't used it long term to see how coral growth is but from everything I've been reading I'm excited to get some corals in the nano. I went with the Deep Ocean Blue, might be a little too much blue for some but I LOVE the color. Spread and shimmer, runs cool, just overall really pleased. I'm really considering replacing my my T5s with the A360 to run on my Apex.
Don't think twice! By Old Salt on 9/25/2013Old Salt would recommend this product to a friendI've had the Ocean Blue running over my 27 cube reef for about a month now. Can't say enough good things about it. Installation with the gooseneck is a breeze and gives the tank a nice clean look. Coral growth has been good and I love the shimmer. It's not adjustable, so you can't do the dawn to dusk thing, but it runs quiet and cool. Assuming it's durable, I think that, at this price, Kessil could quickly dominate the nano- mid-size tank market. I'm already thinking about Kessils for my 58. Get one.

Hi BRS experts!
I'm going to set up my first frag tank and I have been looking at LED fixture options. Does BRS have an opinion on the Kessil A150 for lighting a frag tank? The tank is small, only 15 gallons and 12 inches deep. It will be plumbed into my main system that has over 500 gallons of water volume. I am going to grow various polyps and some SPS frags. I'd appreciate your thoughts on this as an LED option.
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Brad,
For a small tank like that (and I would assume your not worried about things like dimming on it) it would be a great choice!
Dense Matrix LED
Kessil has spent millions of dollars and five years researching a different approach to LED. Instead of individually wrapped LED chips, Kessil tightly packs them together. This results in blends of different light wavelengths before they leave the light, providing uniform color throughout your tank. The single light source eliminates the spotlight effect, effectively spreading the light over a wide area.
