- H80 Tuna Flora Refugium LED Light - Kessil
Designed For Refugiums!
The Kessil H80 Refugium Lights are perfect for growing many different types of algae, most notably chaetomorpha. You can tune the light manually or it is fully controllable through its four different color modes with the Kessil Spectral Controller or any 0-10v controller.
- Integrated heat sink
- Kessil Logic
- Color Tuneable
- Canopy Mount included
- Compatible with Spectral Controller
- Connect multiple with unit link cables
The new innovative design of the H80 integrated the heatsink for the LEDs right into the body of the light allowing for high heat transfer without the need for a fan. The fanless design makes the light perfect for humid environments where refugiums can usually be found.
Dense Matrix LED
Kessil has spent many years developing and researching LEDs, and they have developed a unique array that they build in-house, packing numerous diodes into an area no larger than a dime. This creates a nice even blend of colors and produces a very broad spread of light. With such a tight pack of LEDs, the individual colors are thoroughly mixed before the light even leaves the optic lens reducing hot spots and providing uniform coloration throughout the tank.
After many years of R&D, Kessil Logic™ can be found on all of Kessil's LED lights. The H80 allows you to fine tune the overall color and intensity that the light puts out while keeping a spectrum that will be optimal for algae growth and vitality. Throughout the multiple spectrums and intensities, Kessil Logic keeps the overall light output balanced. Compared to traditional refugium lights, the Kessil H80 is years ahead of the competition and is our choice for a refugium light.

Great By Brad on 2/5/2020Brad would recommend this product to a friendGrows chaeto good. It’s been working over two years
Affordable refugium light By James on 11/22/2018James would recommend this product to a friendI replaced my compact fluorescents in my refugium with this light and my chaetomorpha is growing much quicker and my average nitrates are slowly falling back to where they need to be. I am very happy with my purchase.
awesome By Gina on 9/29/2018Gina would recommend this product to a friendPurchased with goose neck about 6 months ago and am very pleased. The goose neck fits my DIY 40 gallon aquarium/sump the best. I must have purchased 8 refugium lights over the years and so far this is the best based on growth of macro algae. Will definitely purchase again.
Great Product By Jason on 9/28/2018Jason would recommend this product to a friendStarted growing cheato quickly. Love the colors and quality. It's small in size but the spread is really nice.
perfect amount of light for a fuge By Keith on 9/21/2018Keith would recommend this product to a friendI converted the skimmer compartment of my sump (red sea reefer 250) to a fuge. I have two of these positioned over it and the cheto and calurpa both grow like mad. In my opinion, anything more powerful than this is overkill for a (typically shallow) refugium. I might consider adding a t5 to my setup, but otherwise I think these little lights are perfect.
Great support from Kessil By Mark on 9/19/2018Mark would recommend this product to a friendMine got stuck on high red intensity after a couple months, but Kessil has awesome support and will send out a replacement immediately. I mostly have caulerpa growing, chaeto is there, but slower growing. Tried ogo, but the high flow just ate it up and the skimmer spit it out. Been running 12 hours, may try 14. I can confirm it will also grow some hair algae fairly well, but it's controlled.
The little light that can By Dustin on 6/30/2018Dustin would recommend this product to a friendI've been impressed with this light after 3 months of using it. Chaeto grows great under it and as an added bonus I've gotten coraline algae in my sump. I couldn't be happier with this light.
Good Light, Great Service By Andrew on 6/14/2018Andrew would recommend this product to a friendSo, I've had this light for a half a year and was doing great at growing algae, but one day my skimmer overflowed and killed the power supply. I contacted Kessil to purchase a replacement and they offered to send me a replacement for free! Great company, buy with certainty.
Sleek light. By Joe on 2/12/2018Joe would recommend this product to a friendPuts out enough light for a shallower fuge no problem. Still observing growth, so no input there so far, but very simple assembly, interface and operation.
Good product By Michael on 1/9/2018Michael would recommend this product to a friendThe H80 dropped my nitrates from 20 to 0 over a month growing chaeto. I have a 75 gallon display and 25 gallon fuge. I was dosing 1.5mL of vodka to keep the nitrates under control, but not anymore. I've actually had to start feeding significantly more as the corals started to starve with the very clean water. I would highly recommend for a fuge light. Not so much as a horticulture light though.
Great light! By Brett on 12/23/2017Brett would recommend this product to a friendGreat for a refugium and grows cheato fast.
Must have! By Zech on 11/16/2017Zech would recommend this product to a friendHaving the Kessil H80 over your refugium in my IMO is the best bang for the buck. My cheato has never grown so fast helping keep levels perfect.
Hello, I was just wondering if this light would be a good fit for the "Small 13" AquaFuge2 External Hang-On Refugium - CPR Aquatics"? I'm wanting to use that fuge on my 29g tall tank but I'm trying to find a good light to use on it to make my fuge better at removing nutrients.
This light could work for that fuge, however it would probably be best used if you found a way to mount it sideways so that it lights the entire chamber top to bottom. :-)
Can I use this light for a display tank with seahorses and also grow gorgonians?
As long as you can cover your tank with the spread of the light it will be fine for that application.
What intensity should I use on a 12×8×10 fuge? Can this light burn Cheto?
Is this compatible with the Apex?
Can this light be used with the new kessil X remote? I have 2 X360 Tuna and was wondering if i could have all three lights programmed
Unfortunately the x controller cannot control the H series lights. You have to get the H series controller.
I have a 24G cube with a 10 gallon two chamber sump. I have my chaeto growing in the slightly smaller return section. 6" wide and about 10-12" long at a depth of 8" water level. Would this light be strong enough. I have read a lot of mixed opinions on the H380 vs H80. I just feel the H380 may be overkill and I only need to compete against an AI prime HD with your recommended lighting schedule set. Thanks for the help.
A single H80 would be more than enough light for your refugium. Have a great day!
Do I get the unit link cable for the controller. My A360s did?
Unfortunately, the Kessil H80 does not come with a unit link cable.
My chato is turning yellow after switching to this light. Anyone else having this problem?
Thanks for getting in touch with us in regards to this light. More then likely the intensity of this light is much more then your chaeto is used to having. you will probably experience some die off as this acclimates to the new light intensity. Another thing that is recommended is increasing flow across the chaeto to allow for it to spin and not burn on one spot. Please let me know if there is anything else that we can assist with. Thanks!
