Kessil has been the go-to manufacturer for top of the line aquarium lights since their inception in 2005. They have come out with revolutionary aquarium lighting that are incredibly efficient and provide a stunning effect on your fish tank. This is my personal review of one Kessil H80 LED Aquarium Light, which I purchased from petco along with all accessories needed to set it up in an 8 gallon glass fish tank.

1. Four spectrums in one fixture
2. 360-780 nm
3. 14 to 24 depending on the scenario
4. Outer diameter=4

1. Four spectrums in one fixture

Kessil H80 offers four spectrums in one fixture. It has 6500K, 3500K, 2000k and 700k which works with the normal color spectrum while providing a continuous light source over a wide range of daylight temperatures (2700-6500 degrees Kelvin). This means that you can use this as either an aquarium or terrarium lighting to create your ideal environment.

2. 360-780 nm

Kessil H80 is a high-end LED light that emits warm white and cool white lights. The spectrum of the bulbs provide great color rendition while giving off balanced, natural looking light. The Kessil can be used as both an aquarium pump or coral lighting, with it’s ability to run on either 12v DC current or 24v AC frequency coming in really handy for reef tanks who have old pre-2000 inverters

3. 14 to 24 depending on the scenario

This high-end model is a power point color LED fixture with computerized lighting control that allows the user to adjust light intensity, spectrum and temperature. Temperature can be adjusted as low as 27°C or up to 250° C

4. Outer diameter=4

The Kessil H80 is a smaller version of the X41A. It still boasts that same 360 degree coverage and comes with an external light fixture so you can see, even in low-light areas such as caves or other dark places.

Our Rating: 4.7 Out of 5 Stars

I found 1 customer reviews at the time of writing and they had awarded the Kessil H80 a 4.7 out of 5 on average.

The customer reviews were very positive overall saying, “Great product!” and, “Very high quality light … I highly recommend this to anyone in need of an aquarium lighting upgrade.” And finally, “Much brighter than my old lights.”

That makes it easy for me to also recommend the Kessill H80 as well


This product is a great quality light fixture that emits high intensity LED lighting. It’s one of the best on the market, and has both an easy to use design and plenty of features to make it worth what you’re paying for it.
