My 2 cents, as someone who has AI over my main tank and went with Kessil for smaller office tank. Sty in the Kessil brand.
Kessil has a good spectrum, and true UV diodes.
AI has the option to mess with the spectrum, while most probably run AB+ which has worked well for me. But AI also doesn’t have true UV, it’s just a purplish color. Also, AI’s can get the lens melted by the Purplish diode, mine personally melted on my 16HD after 8 months of use.
If I were to restart my Nuvo20, my main tank, I would’ve gone the Kessil route; probably a couple of 160’s
At some point, the level of customization is just silly when the vast majority of reefers wants to run a similar spectrum anyway.
