Kessil ap700 LED Aquarium Light Review

As a first-time aquarium owner, I was very excited to buy my first fish tank and I did a lot of research before I bought a tank to make sure that I would get a healthy and happy fish. I knew all about lighting and filtration but the biggest problem that I faced was finding an aquarium light that would promote the growth of corals in my tank. I just didn’t want to settle for a basic light and I wanted to make sure that the corals in my tank would grow to be a beautiful backdrop for my fish. That is when I found the Kessil AP700 LED light. In this review, I will tell you about this light and how it can be used to grow beautiful corals and fish

kessil ap700 led aquarium light review

Lighting is an important consideration for any reef aquarist, and now that LED technology has matured, there are many options on the market. One of these is the kessil ap700, which I have had the pleasure of testing. 

The kessil ap700 is a new light that was designed with reef tanks in mind. It has the typical but impressive features of being able to be mounted to any angle and having the ability to control multiple lights. The build is extremely solid, and the controls are very simple to use.

Kessil brings this light with canopy-friendly features. Aquarium owners who have aquariums with canopy can easily use this light installation hassle-free. The setup with the provided app is pretty annoying, however, doing it manually the light itself is nothing hassle.

If you can set up and adjust it properly, you can notice that your corals are being started within a few months. It is the light fixture that all reef and aquarium creatures would love.

After installation of the kessil ap700 light, the tank will look totally changed. It is a stylish and compact design that is able to increase the beauty of the aquarium. It is more realistic and brighter to look at a glance.

The wifi controls are also good but there are now some bugs after updating the app. Hope it will be fixed soon. Otherwise, the wifi app is great for using. It is easy to use.
