We recommend mounting Kessil lights 8-12 inches above the water surface for the ideal coverage.
All Kessil aquarium lights are compatible with the A Series Gooseneck. The base of the gooseneck features a clamp that can be mounted onto glass or acrylic tanks and is also compatible with euro brace styles.
The light attaches onto the gooseneck via a bracket. There are three variations of the bracket, one for the A150 line, one for the A350 and A360 line, and a third for the A160 line.
The gooseneck package includes the A350/A360 bracket. The A150 and A160 brackets are included with the light.
The 90 Degree Gooseneck Adaptor can be used to extend the reach of the gooseneck.

Alternative Mounting Options
The A350 and A360 have a removable hanging bolt, which can be used to hang from the ceiling using cables or wires. The A150 and A160 have two triangle clips on each fixture, which can also be used to hang the lights from.
It is also possible to mount the lights inside a canopy. Be sure to allow enough room for ventilation or the fixtures may overheat and become damaged.
