The newer Kessils seem to have a better spectrum and more control although still using an external controller. Have a look at em.
Haven’t we already discussed my abysmal photographic skillz
Cool. Bear in mind you’ll need 3 (maybe get way with 2 with low light plants and depending on how high you suspend them).
Think about where you sit. You don’t want to be looking up at a point source light.
Have used the sea version before but not the freshwater. Be interesting to see what you think
If you are spending that sort of money why not consider the ADA Solar RGB or the new MaxLite. Edit. I think you’ll need 2 of them.........!
Kessil said with 2 I would need to be about 6 in off the water surface. We will see. They arrived today so hooray for that!
I'll look into ADA and Maxlite.
2 of which?
There wouldn't be any bias of course
The average freshwater hobbyist doesn't want to spend money on a "expensive" light. Where as a reef hobbyist will spend it multiple times. The average reef hobbyist will cycle thru different lights every 6 months. So aquarium lighting companies don't really see Planted tanks as a market to include their freshwater lights in a list like this.It would’ve been nice of AI to include their Freshwater LED versions
Now do it all again
That should give yo a measure of your own repeatability
Then I suggest repeating the measurements at a couple of light intensities as well as spectra
Do you have the Kessils equidistant across the length of the tank?
I set mine slightly closer to the edges than to each other
