    Next month the Kessil A160WE hits the shelves. This is a tunable version of the 150 model that is compatible with the new Kessil Spectral Controller. A nice upgrade for only $20 more in price. How cool is that? First to hit will be the Tuna Blue at 10k - Actinic and the Tuna Sun at 6k to 9k color temp. I expect to see 900 of these new lights over all the frag stands at Reef-A-Palooza next month.

    The Tuna Sun model would make for an amazing fuge light if you have the coin. I'd love to see the growth from that if you do it.

    Do you think the tuna sun would be better at growing algae than their grow lights for pants?

    This is what I get for typing while I eat a burrito . No I don't. I'd go with your instinct there.
