    Here are some photos to see difference between 2 A150 6" off water level and one A350 11" of water level over the 57 Gallon Illuminata.... we also took 2 photos for each wide/zoom

    Thanks for posting the 350 over the 57g illuminata. It's what I have and wanted to know if the 350 would cover it. For my rockwork I would need more, so I get to wait for the 350w :)

    Looks like it covers 3 ft pretty good!

    we are happy with coverage @11" we cover 3' IMO. After seeing the spread and depth of pebetration on the 5' deep seahorse tank at a casino in Vegas with 1 A350 i had a stronf feeling it was going to be a keeper. This light is impressing me more and more each day we play with it in house.

    Just to clear this up we at no time had both A150 and A350 on at same time, this was strictly a comparison of the the 2 seperate fixtures in action.

    The 350 demonstrated is a great solution for tanks that are wide (24"+) imo. I don't think they work as well for narrower tanks like the illuminata (18"). To get the spread that you demonstrated in the photo, you had to lift the light up a lot (in lot in terms of optical divergence). The price you pay, is a ton of spill light in comparison to the pair of A150's. One thing I love about my pair of 150's over the Elos 70 , is that in balancing the spread/intensity, I can keep the lights lower and get WAY less spill light then I had with any other setup. I personally find this highly desirable. Now, if I had something like the oceanic 120 (24x24x48), I'd be all over those 350s :)

    You be the judge :)

    Maybe the 350w can be placed lower and have less light spill.

    But that defeats the spread demonstrated.

    Even at equal distance 6" you cover 32-34" once we have a goose neck to play with we will get better comparison but your only talking 5" more in these photos

    Looking forward to the equal distance photos! 5" more height is a ton ;)

    here are the first readings of the A350 over our 57 Illuminata 11 inches above water level, testings were done at:
    Water level
    6" deep
    17" deep at sandbed

    mind you i am using my apogee par meter for the first time i bet once i get a handle on this i will be able to compare the 2 kessil option a bit better
