Kessil hit the ball out of the park with their previous refugium lights, and the H160 is no different. Fully controllable through the onboard dials, or the Kessil H-Series Controller. Using Kessil's Dense Matrix LED technology color balance, and blending is second to none and allows for even and balanced light spread throughout your refugium. Using a quality LED light with a spectrum designed to grow algae can increase the algae nutrient intake, giving a smaller refugium the ability to maintain a larger aquarium.

- Ideal for nutrient reduction
- Tunable spectrum and intensity
- 0-10V controller compatible
- Advanced thermal system
- Compact and efficient
Dense Matrix LED Technology
Kessil is a leader when it comes to LED lighting technology. With their Dense Matrix LED's producing a concentrated source of light, and switchable spectrum every wavelength within the spectrum is mixed perfectly allowing even and full growth. Each H160 comes with Kessil's proprietary blend of LEDs that are packed so close together, they appear like a single chip when illuminated.
Four individual settings allow for either a Blue, Grow, Bloom, or Red spectrum to help increase your yield and offer the best coloration for your type of algae. You can change between the different spectrums through the built-in dial controls or connect it to any 0-10V controller, like an Apex, or the Kessil H-Series Controller to create daily programs with ever-changing spectrums and intensities. Each spectrum is perfectly blended to offer a full-spectrum that ranges from 380nm all the way up to 780nm.
Pair the H160 up with the Kessil Gooseneck for an easy to use tank mounting system. The gooseneck will clamp onto most sumps or tanks and give you ultimate flexibility for the perfect light placement.

Didn't even last 6 months! By Ron on 8/23/2019Ron wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThis is my first kessil product. Light began flickering. Reporedt to Kessil. They claim it is showing signs of shorting out. Had to send it for replacement.
Works great and handled big splash! By Stan on 9/25/2018Stan would recommend this product to a friendGrowing chaeto very well . Love the adjustability. I had an issue with my skimmer going crazy and the light got a heavy splashing with salt water over an entire night. Still working fine! I took off the outer shell to clean and inspect and was amazed to see how well everything was protected! Hardly a drop made it internally!
So Far, So Good By AquariumKeeper on 8/26/2018AquariumKeeper would recommend this product to a friendIve had the fixture up and running a few weeks now and my chaetomorpha has almost doubled in size despite the fact that I already had fairly low nitrates in the tank. I would not recommend this fixture if your sump is not enclosed due to the effect on one's eyes from the interaction aquarium display light and the red light of the grow light.
Great light By Eric on 8/18/2018Eric would recommend this product to a friendGreat for growing Chaeto. I prefer this light over the H380 because the intensity and color can be adjusted. I don’t want to pay for another 90 watts running for several hours a day when I don’t need that much power for my shallow refugium.
Unbelievable chaeto growth By christopher on 8/6/2018christopher would recommend this product to a friendIn the process of cycling an 80 gallon Red Sea tank with sump. Set up refugium hang on box in the sump d/t no room elsewhere and got the light. Put a tennis ball sized ball of chaeto from algae barn in there and the light on 40% for 12 hrs per day. It’s tripled in size in 5 days. Furthermore, I am doing a fishless cycle so nothing else has been added to the tank except ammonia. (Have dosed 3 times now to 2ppm). From the charts, nitrates should be 20-25 now. However, they are 5. I wonder where they went? Maybe that massive living chaeto ball? Furthermore, I started off running gfo and phosphates were initially zero. They still are. In fact, to save an outlet I ran my reactor pump line directly to the refugium after the water has been sent through th gfo. There is no phosphate for the chaeto to use so it definitely can be grown using a gfo reactor with this light. I’m admittedly amazed. I cannot wait for my cycle to completely end so I can add some pods to this green forest I am growing. Totally worth the price. Don’t skimp on your refugium light.
A++ By Phil on 7/14/2018Phil would recommend this product to a friendBest grow light I’ve ever used for my chaetomorpha!
I have a 13x14” refugium section in my Eshopps sump. Water height is 10” deep, sump rim is 6” above the water line, and it’s another 15” to the roof of the stand. I have high nitrates/phosphates and am looking for a high powered grow light. The stand/sump area can get humid. Is this a good light for my situation? Or should I choose another?
That light would be a great option to grow macroalgae. For the humidity you could look at cutting a hole and putting a computer fan to push the air out.
What gooseneck mount will work with this light
Thanks for reaching out to us. With the 160 series, you can use either the gooseneck or mounting arms linked below. I personally went with the arm on my tank as I think the fixed angle looks better and it has internal wire routing for a cleaner look. Let us know if you have any other questions.
So what’s the difference between this light and the kessil h80 tuna flora light?
The main difference between the H80 and the H160 is that the H160 is more powerful and will be better suited for larger refugiums. Have a great day!
