In today's BRStv Investigates episode, we are putting the popular Kessil AP700 through the rigorous testing to see how it stacks up against being a model LED light for an SPS dominant saltwater reef aquarium. In this video, Ryan will share the PAR charts, spectrum, color blending ability and much more for the AP700! Check out the Kessil AP700 here! https://www.bulkreefsupply.com/ap700-led-lighting-panel-kessil.html Kessil has been producing LED lights for fresh and saltwater aquariums for quite some time now, and they have grabbed a foothold in the market with their Dense Matrix LED clusters and simple, refined control that just works. Kessil has a few different models of LED lights for reef tanks, and today we are going to take an in-depth look at the AP700. The AP700 looks very close to two Kessil A360We modules placed into a single fixture, but it is actually more. The AP700 now comes with electronic onboard control with simple touch buttons, along with WiFi control that you can use with most smart devices. Ryan and the crew put the Kessil AP700 through the rigorous testing procedures we have put all other LEDs through, and the AP700 was a great performer. Between the PAR output and the option to add diffusers over the optics make it an excellent lighting choice for any saltwater tank. Many reefers have been very successful with Kessil LED lights, and we believe a majority of that credit is due to Kessil Logic, which is their way of creating a perfectly blended spectrum no matter how you set the light. Today on BRStv, we have a brand new episode of our series, BRStv Investigates. In this series, we explore popular reefing theories, products, methods, and what the manuals are missing, with a focus on putting them to the test!

Why is there no good review of the high end Tunze 9415-9430-9480 DOC skimmers?

Second comment: Any reason why you don't test other brands of lights you sell? So far you basically have only tested Kessil, Ecotech and AI lights, except for that Orphek one which also happened to be an expensive light. I'm curious how the cheaper lights compare like MaxSpect, you have the Razor and the Ethereal lights currently, but I'm just curious if they're good enough for what they do, or if you really are getting what you pay for.
