- AP700 Slight Diffusion Optical Kit - Kessil
The Slight Diffusion Optical Kit greatly enhances the already great color blending capability of the AP700 while helping maintain the natural light appearance while reducing hard shadow and light scatter.
Have you ever wanted your AP700 to be a bit softer light, with less appearing shadows, almost mirroring a T5 lamp? The Optical Kits are the answer. Having the ability to change the overall diffusion of the LED lights within your fixture is very valuable. Diffusion optics have been used in the lighting industry for years, it's about time we use them with aquariums.
- Perfect for acclimation
- Reduces hard shadows
- Reduces light scatter
- Softens source of light
- Easy magnetic install
- Under 10% loss of overall light
Two Models Available
- Slight Diffusion Optic Kit - Best for deeper tanks with minimal surface agitation that are looking to soften the source of light
- Major Diffusion Optic Kit - Best for acclimation, or shallow tanks with higher rates of turbulence on the surface looking to reduce shimmer

Note: All existing AP700 lights already have built in magnets to hold the optical kits in the perfect position. Only compatible with AP700 fixtures.
did exactly what i needed By Nick on 2/20/2017Nick would recommend this product to a friendi haven't had a chance to measure PAR prior to or after, but i have twin ap700's and my return valve is directly underneath and i was getting an insane amount of shimmer and i think hotspots from the two lights blending together, popped these on, its only been 2 weeks but the sps underneath have definitely gotten deeper coloration and a little better polyp extension. as far as the decrease in PAR, BRS did their video on it, but kessils don't really measure PAR well anyway. i'll post back up after a couple months if i remember.
Good Product to Make Shimmer Look More Natural By Damian on 8/21/2016Damian wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI have bought both the Major and now the Slight diffusion lens and have been pleased with my purchase. I do prefer the Slight Diffusion lens, however. The shimmer is subdued and gives the light a more natural metal halide look without reducing the PAR too dramatically. I recommend this product to people who feel a little overwhelmed by the sharp shimmer effect they get from the AP 700 alone.
