This is an item that we arrange to ship directly from the manufacturer. We do this for a couple of reasons.
1. We don't want to pay to ship the item twice. Once from the manufacturer to us and then again to you.
2. Not stocking it also reduces our inventory, warehouse and other operating costs.
This results in a lower cost to us and allows us to pass those savings along to you. On the odd occasion
when the item is not available to ship in the usual one of two days we will let you know as soon as possible.
Why does it take so long to get this item?
This item is not stocked but instead picked up from one of our suppliers as orders are received. We find it best to handle items that are updated frequently, are very specialized or just plain slow moving, in this manner.
This helps keep our operating cost low and in turn our prices lower. It will take a little longer for the item to reach you but on the otherhand, your price will be lower as a result.
What is a $ave More Item?
In an effort to lower our cost and bring you even greater savings most items are now being picked up at our suppliers on a weekly basis.

The A160WE features Kessil`s new proprietary Kessil Logic™, a unique form of spectral intelligence developed for precise color blending and optimal coral growth. In this new design, instead of varying the light intensity of two different channels to find the desired color and intensity mix, users can select the perfect spectrum and color with one knob and then adjust the intensity with the other. Kessil Logic™ will not only dramatically improve the user experience, it will also boost the light output at both ends of the spectral tuning range by as much as 30%.
In addition to its enhanced manual controllability, the A160WE comes with a pair of ports that allows the fixture to be governed by external devices. This new control interface operates within a 0-10Volt DC range, making it compatible with several popular aquarium controllers. When daisy-chained in series without an external controller, the first A360 or A160 acts as the master unit propagating its settings to all other lights in the chain.
Kessil’s shimmer gives the look of natural sunlight in your aquatic garden that no other LEDs can reproduce.
Kessil manufactures all LED arrays in-house using Dense Matrix™ technology so each unique spectral blend is custom made to meet aquarist needs. Proprietary “Double Peak” spectrum enhances photosynthetic absorption.
Patented Dense Matrix LED™ tehcnology concentrates multiple LED chips into an array, creating a powerful light source with better and deeper penetration, without sacrificing coverage. E-Series LEDs are 15% brighter.
Mixing Different wavelengths within a single LED array are seamlessly blended before leaving the light, emitting a uniform color with widespread coverage.
High performance and low maintenance. Simple and compact units feature quiet operation, innovative heat management and efficient, long-lasting LED construction
Tune the spectrum (6,000 - 9,000K) and intensity for a personalized look. Kessil Logic™ maintains consistent output across the tunable spectrum.
Compatible with 0 ~ 10V external controllers such as the Kessil Spectral Controller or Apex with VDM Module. Multiple lights can be daisy-chained for control by either a single external controller or first light in chain.
