Photosynthesis is the main driver of primary production in most ecosystems. Plants, ranging from miniscule phytoplankton to hulking mangroves, carry out the bulk of photosynthesis in our biosphere. Because different plant species have adapted to the particular light conditions of their natural habitat, they grow best under specific types of illumination. Thus, to obtain optimal health and yield, artificial lighting should meet these intrinsic criteria as closely as possible. When it comes to orientation to a light source, plants and zooxanthellate animals (such as corals) are often quite finicky. Indeed, slight changes in light exposure may make the difference between burning, light starvation or rapid growth. Light positioning can therefore be just about as important as the quality of the light itself! The Kessil A-Series Gooseneck serves as the best choice of mounting where total control of lighting position is desirable.
What can the Kessil A-Series Gooseneck do?
The Kessil A-Series Gooseneck allows you to control the positioning of your light fixture. This mounting option is designed for use on most glass tanks and refugia. Its sturdy, 24-inch arm (10-inch arm for the mini A Series) is the most effective and most secure way to install your Kessil aquarium light. Because the stem is malleable, fine-tuning of your light position can be accomplished in mere seconds.
What’s more, it adds an extra level of security. Its strong bracket and durable construction additionally help to keep your lighting unit in place, thereby protecting it from falling into the water, onto glass lids, etc. Like all Kessil lighting systems, this high-quality mounting option is specially designed for excellent performance and adaptability.
