Perfect coverage. Awesome colors. Excellent growth.

Kessil’s AP700 LED combines the features and power of their pendant lights with a traditional flat aquarium fixture. This configuration allows the light to be suspended above the aquarium with a hanging kit, mounted to the tank itself with the mounting arm, or placed within your existing canopy with the canopy kit.

The 185-watt LED fixture uses Kessil-designed “Hybrid Optics” that gives their LED array the depth penetration and coverage of metal halide lighting but without the heat and high energy consumption. The Hybrid Optics design uses the latest Kessil patented Dense Matrix LED arrays with a specially designed lens and reflector system. This eliminates lighting “hot spots” often seen with regular LED aquarium fixtures. The AP700 provides a full 48 inches of light coverage with virtually no shading. You’ll also love the light shimmer effect that looks just like natural sunlight penetrating the reef.

Kessil manufactures LED lighting systems for research equipment, photo-imaging and other color-sensitive applications. This LED know-how is found in the AP700’s Full Color Spectrum properties. You’ll be able to select and fine-tune the light spectrum with the AP700’s endless color palate. Kessil Logic allows each color channel to be independently tuned to create the best color spectrum to stimulate intense coloration and accelerated coral growth. Kessil also pre-programs the fixture to always provide the right UV spectrum for coral growth. Kessil Logic ensures the LED array provides consistent output across the light spectrum.

Control of the light’s color adjustments and programming can be made directly on the fixture or wirelessly through the Kessil Wi-Fi Controller app for iOS and Android devices.

  • Kessil pendant technology in a traditional canopy fixture

Q
Red Sea Reefer 425xl
Can I get by with one unit over the red sea reefer if it's a mixed reef? Mainly LPS and some SPS but they would be up higher and in the middle, with softies towards the outer edges of the tank.

A
A single fixture can handle SPS tanks for up to 36" x 24", you would need 2 units to get full coverage on a 48" aquarium.

PROS
LED Technology with the Halide like shimmer, no disco ball effect, which I am not to keen on.
CONS
a bit expensive and a little more expensive than other high end LED lights.
REVIEW
I was a little hesitant to order these lights as I was hearing of complaints from the LFS as to them not liking the light. I also heard that the par on these lights was low. BRS did a review and objective measurements on the par. Absolutely perfect for SPS tanks, growing SPS anywhere in the tank....Read More

This light makes life a whole lot easier with its various programs to choose from (or create) on the associated app. Great color spectrums and intensities to choose from. Pricey yes but worth it if you want a well established tank.

REVIEW
I bought this light about 3 weeks ago to replace a Coralife dual tube T5HO light I had on my 48" tank. This is exactly what my tank needed. Hook up was a breeze.

Just hooked these up and I must say the color, shimmer and power are great. I have had LED lights since I started my 220 gallon tank in 2012 and these make my tank look totally different and awesome.
