- Kessil A150 LED Aquarium Light
Just What I needed By Dion on 12/14/2014Dion would recommend this product to a friendI got the Ocean blue for my BC29 during the BRS Black Friday sale. I had just restarted my nano and I did not what to put the old hood and PC lights back on. When looking for a good LED replacement, I compared Kessil, AI and Ecotech. I chose to buy the Keesil almost immediately because of the sale. Although not dimmable, like the 160, the 150 looks great in my tank. It's actually not as blue as some have said, so if you like it blue go deep ocean blue. I have no corals yet but my cinnamon clown who was in a 6 bulb Ati t5 is hiding from this new Kessil. The shimmer is insane. If you don't need to dim your light and you can get this for a good price, go for it.
Awesome By Jason on 12/8/2014Jason would recommend this product to a friendI received my Amazon sun model a little over a week ago and let me say this light is great. I put it on my refugium and my cheato and caulerpa are growing like crazy. I believe that they have nearly doubled in size in a matter of a week dropping my nitrate and phosphate considerably. Its an expensive option for a fuge light but its working out great so far and i'm really happy about it.
great light By mike on 10/24/2014mike would recommend this product to a friendHave had the ocean blue a150w on a biochemical 29 for a while and the colors and shimmer are amazing. The best part about the light is the growth of my corals. softies, LPS and sps all doing great and colors pop
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 !!!

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.
