I've had my Kessil A360N-E installed now for a few weeks and the color of the corals have improved a lot in 3 weeks. These photos have been cropped, sharpened, and automatically white balanced only. I added insets from Canada Corals website to the photos. I bought these last October.

The corals had a rough trip via UPS and lost color during shipping which is normal. But they were fine. These were the same corals (just at a different angle) after I unbagged them to my tank in October. Needless to say, I like my new lighting. They replaced 150w HQI MH which were also very good and also did color up the corals well.

Thanks all. Thomas, I use a Panasonic Lumix DMC TS20 for underwater photos and Canon Powershot SX230HS for regular photos. Here's another before and after comparison for the same Bonsai frag (different angle).
