Anyone else had white diodes burn out in these lights?? Sucks cause warranty is expired.
I had the same thing happen on my Ocean Revives. I gave up nd switched to T5s
I was going to get 2 360s for my 90gallon should I reconsider.
I've had three A360WEs for over a year with no issues. Try calling Kessil...they may still work with you.
And make sure you have surge protection.
If its a 4 foot tank you will need atleast 3. I personally I have not been satisfied with growth from mine. I will be switching to T5s as soon as I can talk my accountant into it.
I also supplement with two 80W T5s. If you swap to T5s, make sure you acclimate your tank residents slowly.
Yea, I have two 54 watt T5s with my kessils now.
I have two 360 w and have been running for
Two years. One of my lights just a few weeks ago lost the blues .
Warranty out of course. Not sure if I would buy Kessil again.
But that shimmer!
One of the guys at a LFS said he dropped his A360 in his tank and Kessil replaced his soggy lamp.
You can get the shimmer from halides as well
I called Kessil and they will take a look for a minimum fee to see if able to repair. They did not sound hopeful but gave me a one time option to buy for much less.
Yes, I do love the shimmer, and ramping them on my apex is nice. But I defiantly going to T5s.
If you lost all of one color, it's probably a board issue
I know that's right. That's one of the reasons I tried them over halides on this tank.
The whites are weak on the left light. I noticed at the sunrise ramp this morning that the right side of the tank was much brighter .
Dude, that stinks. I'm sorry to hear that. Maybe you can find a lightly used one on the cheap?
Do you know if Radion users have the same shimmer or is the light source too diffuse?
I have three and one went out after the warranty, so I call Kessil and they offered me a new unit for a reduced price, the offer was good so I took it. I love the Kessils but on a large tank, supplement with t5's. You will get the PAR and coverage plus the shimmer.
I use both Radion G4 and Kessils. Both have a nice shimmer but the Kessils shimmer is more pleasing to the eye and is a much crisper shimmer.
+1. I run A160's with my ATI T5 can't beat the combo
