I just wanted to hear about some experiences w the kessil ap9x because I don't think it is used that much. (Might be wrong I'm not sure)
I don't own but have seen that others love it.

Just got some PAR readings today…

AP9X on IM30L 10” from water surface at 65% intensity…

If you’re not familiar with the IM30L, it is about 13” high…

Top center 300-315

Bottom center 220-245

Bottom left 75-100

Bottom right 75-100

Really happy with the light and the results that I got today.

I run an AP9X on my RSR 350 and it is doing a great job at 23 % color and 23% intensity. I tried turning it up for a couple days and coral did not seem as happy. I run the light 8" above the water surface and have a mixed reef with softies on the sides and SPS in the center 2' of the tank and everything is happy. Zoa's like it best on the bottom center to slight side of the tank. Monti's are growing great anywhere in the 2' area and Digi's close to center at the top. I replaced the my A360WE TB with it and am very happy.

Thanks for posting. I'm also looking at a pair of these for my IM 100 EXT.

I'm thinking of getting the same light for the IM30L. Is there light overspill, and if there is, how bad is it?

It looks great. Not much light spill the way I have it adjusted. It’s able to be moved up or down plus front and back. Highly recommended.

I am very happy with it, so is my mixed tank. Very powerful light, almost too powerful. I run at 45% , 10” from top of water. A par meter is a must have with this light.
