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 Sun is perfect for nano and pico freshwater aquariums. Emitting a spectrum range of 6,000K to 9,000K making them a perfect light for fast growth, and coloration. Pair the A160WE up with a Kessil A-series gooseneck for an easy and quick mounting solution.

  • Great refuge light By Jeffrey on 11/16/2017

    I 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 6/13/2017

    I 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
