Hi all,

Recently measured PAR and realized I need light upgrades badly.

Tank is 3ft deep but even in super high areas I’m getting barely 100 par

I added narrow reflectors to the 3 Kessil A360Xs I currently have.

Next I want to remove and upgrade the AI prime 15s I’m using.

My instant thought was to add 2 more Kessil A360Xs with narrow reflectors. However for about the same cost is the Kessil Ap9x. Which of these seems like the best option for increasing par? Would you suggest something else completely?

AP9X is great option to light a 3ft deep tank. That thing throws out crazy PAR numbers. Mount it higher, 16-18” above water line and use the Kessil 360x to supplement on the edges.

That might be what I’m leaning towards I just wish I had an even number of kessils already
