    Question about upgrading lights

    Hello all! I finally decided to upgrade from 2 Kessil A160wes to 2 A360wes. I have these on a standard size Marineland 75gallon. My A160s light schedule would only peak to 55% intensity for a 6 hour period then ramp down. I was wondering if I should run my new A360wes on the same schedule or...

    Recommended Kessil Light for a nano tank?

    I have a 20gallon tank that has a footprint of 15” x 20” and is 16” tall. Planning on it being a mixed tank. I’ve been looking at the a80, a160, and a360. I feel like the a80 would be too weak and the a360 would be overkill. Do y’all think the a160 is the right choice for this tank?

    Hey guys so this might be a bit of a stupid question but I can’t seem to find an answer. Anyone know how people get their jumpgaurds so flush to the tank? Does it just sit on top of the tank loosely or is there some sort of clip that keeps them in place? Looking at people’s photos I can’t tell...
