Great refuge light By Jeffrey on 11/16/2017Jeffrey would recommend this product to a friendI installed this light on my fuge when I set up my system 2 yrs ago, Its has grown the cheato and mangrove plants in my fuge like crazy. I see a lot new fuge ligts on the market now push the red and blue colors. Almost pulled the plug to buy one of the new lights a couple times, glad I didn't. BRS did a invest on the growth rate of several different light but didn't include this one. I can say this light works and works great without that ugly red color.
Excellent By Fishdude1984 on 6/13/2017Fishdude1984 would recommend this product to a friendI have two A160we tuna sun's over a 75gallon fresh water planted tank. I absolutely love them. Great color and great shimmer. Just like metal halide without the downsides. Fantastic lights and quick shipping form BRS
Manual control stopped working in 4 days By Paul on 5/21/2016Paul wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThe light worked very well... for four days. Then the manual controls ceased all function. E-mailed BRS to enlist their help getting the unit replaced. Never received a reply or any aid. Currently working with the manufacturer. Will update review if the replacement works. Customer service from BRS was lacking. Not the best first time purchase experience.
Awesome Sectrum and Controllability By KerryF on 3/29/2016KerryF would recommend this product to a friendI bought this light for my fuge. Hooked up to Apex, it allows for nice range of intensity and spectrum.
Powerful & low profile! By Alan on 12/9/2015Alan would recommend this product to a friendI was worried at first because I called up kessil HQ and they recommended a360we for my 30 gallon (24 x 24 x 12) shallow tank. When the a160we arrived I was very impressed. More than enough par for my corals I will probably max it at 80%. Great spread for about 20 x 20. The sides of the tank were still illuminated but not as strong. Good for corals that require low light. I'm very satisfied with my purchase the blue spectrum is amazing.
Very Nice Light By Brett on 10/7/2015Brett would recommend this product to a friendI installed 2 of these on my 65 gallon reef tank and they are great. I had to turn the intensity down on them because they were so bright. Corals are doing great with them compared to the other LED light I had before.
Very nice lights By Lynn52 on 5/22/2015Lynn52 would recommend this product to a friendI purchased 2 of the tuna blue along with the spectral controller. I love the light they give off it is very much like natural light. There is no random red or green spots in the tank like my old lights. I have them over my 125. Two work for now because I only have coral in two location on rock islands. Each light hangs directly over one of the islands. My original plan was to supplement these with my old LEDs but frankly they look horrible compared to the kessils. As a result I will be purchasing another two in the near future.
Great Product By Chris on 4/28/2015Chris would recommend this product to a friendThis light gives you all control. With the tuning knobs and the kessil controller you can completely control your led lights with simplicity.
very bright By jacquelyn on 4/27/2015jacquelyn would recommend this product to a friendordered this through the site from my lfs the shimmer effect is the best ive seen brs tvs youtube channels review is what really made me want to see them for myself could not be any happier next day shipping was deff worth and was super fast
Great Light By Olivia on 4/7/2015Olivia would recommend this product to a friendI have this light over a 12 gallon nano and it is more than enough to keep my corals happy.
Love the light By Zeek the Dog on 2/25/2015Zeek the Dog would recommend this product to a friendLove this light. Just put over a 5 year old JBJ 28 nano which I took the original top off of and replaced with a DIY screen top (screen courtesy of BRS). The knobs for intensity and color work well and give a wide range of options. I’ve opted to control my light with Kessil’s spectral controller and it works perfectly for what I need…..lights on low and in blue in the early A.M., ramping up to full spectrum by noon and back to blue at bedtime. Fish love it, corals love and I love it!
More powerful than the 150s By David on 2/10/2015David would recommend this product to a friendI have 2 of the Tuna Blue 160s over a 56 gallon column. Combined with the controller, it produces an amazing shimmer and my corals respond well. It does grow SPS in the upper portion of the tank. Downside is the price of the accessories. Goosenecks, data cables, 90 degree adapters add up. Be sure to include these in the cost to weigh you options!
I need to know the total depth of this light for a planted tank.
