Quick Overview

Amazing natural shimmer you've come to expect from Kessil, with a controllable LED, now in a compact package. We can't help but be impressed with the natural looking lighting effect produced by Kessil LEDs. They produce an amazing shimmer to rival a metal halide and you can even see the shadows of fish swimming over the sand - just like in the ocean. Kessil has put years of research into their LEDs creating a Dense Matrix LED which tightly packs the LEDs onto one chip with numerous colors and numerous wavelengths of light.

The Kessil A160WE Tuna Blue is perfect for nano and pico saltwater aquariums. Emitting a spectrum range of 10,000K to 20,000K making them a perfect light for fast growth, and coloration of corals. Pair the A160WE up with a Kessil A-series gooseneck for an easy and quick mounting solution.

Product Questions

Would i be able to keep a mixed reef tank with just one of these in a jbj 30 gallon rl?
Question by: Vincent Taylor on Jun 28, 2016 10:22:00 AM
Great question!
These have a 24" x 24" maximum spread and will work well with mixed reef tanks.

I'm going to set up a 10gallon tank with mostly soft and LPS corals would this light be ideal?
Later I will be going to a 40 gallon breeder would I just need to add another light for this?
Question by: tim on Jun 21, 2016 8:38:00 AM
Great question!
This will be a perfect fit and well recommended for both the current 10 gallon. This will work great in the future 40 gallon as well!

Could i put this on a jbj 30 gallon RL? Could it handle sps? Thanks.
Question by: Vincent on Jun 24, 2016 11:01:00 AM
You could install this over a tank of that size, however the spread and power will probably not be enough to cover your entire tank nor meet the high PAR needs of SPS. :-)

  • Great investment By Daniel on 7/17/2016

    This has been one of the greatest investments I made for my aquarium. My corals looks brighter and healthier than they ever have. I hardly had to acclimate my coral to these lights and they were very easy to set up, I purchased the Kessil controller to run these and it was a easy setup as well with very little instruction. I would definitely buy these again.
  • A perfect led for nano aquariums. By Mike on 6/13/2016

    After using this product for 6 months I have received nothing but great results. Growth and polyp extension has increased dramatically making all my lps corals really happy. The shimmer is just beautiful and the color spectrum combines the fast growing power of 10000 kelvin bulb with the aesthetics of a 14000 or 20000k bulb, I am looking forward to add the spectral controller to this light to increase control-ability. Over all, this is the most impressive light fixture I ever owned.
