Kessil LED is a new company to the aquarium world which will soon be offering their Kessil A150W LED spotlight in white, blueish and blue colors. While the A150w LED spotlight is not yet widely available, that hasn’t stopped the old-schoolers at Atlantis Aquarium from getting a sample 15K A150w over a 22 gallon CadLights nano reef. The video above shows the blueish 15K spotlight from Kessil after two weeks of running on this nano reef.
The diminutive form factor of Kessil’s A150w LED spotlight produces a very pleasant color rendition over corals, a rose bubble anemone and a crisp look to the entire tank while also creating a dramatic spotlight and ripple effect in the entire aquarium. We are highly skeptical that the A150w is actually equivalent to a 150 watt metal halide, especially a higher PAR Iwasaki lamp, but it is possible that two of Kessil’s 32 watt LED spotlights could be comparable to a single 14K to 20K 150 watt metal halide with a mid-grade reflector.

This video is mostly out of focus but it still offers a feel for the size of the Kessil A150w LED spotlight and the area which it is lighting up.
