Hi there,

So I had this idea of converting a 5g (25x25x30cm not sure in inches) dennerle to an AIO to keep some LPS like hammer, blasto, acans and some shrooms.

I am trying to stay as low budget as possible, so hunting around for used lights. I have this rare opportunity of picking up a Kessil A160WE with a controller literally cheaper than a standalone A80 when new.

The original plan was to look for an A80 as used as that should suffice, but I don’t want to pass this deal, however.. I am wondering would the 160WE be overkill for the above?

thank you!

just put it on 1% and you will do great!
Actually, you will have to turn it low

Haha, yeah - I expected - but how low? Is the lowest possible would be ok or its just simply too powerful? Never had kessils so not sure how adjustable they are.
