I am in the planning stages for getting a Manta Ray 18. The part that has me stumped is lighting. I would like to be able to keep SPS. Which light would be better suited (Kessil A150W, or AI Nano)?

Thanks,
Russ

Ai nano, can't beat the greatness that controllability is.

I'm just worried that I will fry my corals in such a shallow tank. By the way, where did you get your custom glass cleaner? That thing is awesome!

Fry what? That's y it's controllable..... And if depth is a concern, raise the light..l much better spread anyways.

Chris from pico aquariums is working on demos, not available yet.

The kessil is a really nice unit and can be adjusted with the gooseneck mount raising and lowering but the AI nano can be dimmed in place and has other neat options when paired with the controller.

The custom magnet cleaners are a little pet project of mine. Tron was one of my guinea pigs :P
Not quite sure when I am going to put them out for purchase. Might just offer them for people here on NR .
