Kessil Lighting about SDC!!

“Happy 2015! Have you made your resolutions yet? We see every year as an opportunity to strive to be better. Recently, we got a chance to visit a company that shares those same values.
For Sea Dwelling Creatures (SDC), 2015 marks their 23rd year in operation!

What started in 1992 out of a home office has now expanded to a 25,000 square feet warehouse with over 130,000 gallons of holding tanks. Sea Dwelling Creatures is now a household name in the aquarium industry, known for their incredible selection of livestock and dry goods.

Behind the wild success of SDC are the Cohen brothers and their partner, Brad Remmer. Scott and Eric Cohen have been involved in the aquarium industry their entire lives, and that experience translates to some of the healthiest, most vibrant livestock available. Not only is the SDC team focused on bringing the best products available, they are also working to improve the hobby by promoting sustainable harvesting techniques and aqua-cultured products.

Come check out their impressive facility, illuminated by Kessil lights. With two lifetimes of experience in the aquarium industry, the Cohen brothers understand what it means to have a reliable product that will stand the test of time. As Scott puts it, “if it takes a lickin’ at Sea Dwelling Creatures and keeps on tickin’, you’ve got something there.”

SDC’s Youth Education Program

SDC has been reaching out to youth programs for over 20 years. We regularly invite schools, camps and other educational institutions to come and visit SDC. We even pack up our critters for field trips. SDC believes that education is the foundation for future hobbyists. During our tours and field trips, we educate the children on the importance of sustainable collection, proper handling and husbandry techniques. SDC is proud of our education program and we look forward to the opportunity to teach young aquarists for years to come.

The busiest booth at MACNA was that of
Blue Life USA thanks to their cool new
“RESINATOR” flow-through Media Reactor.
The Resinator comes loaded with Clear Fx Pro and only needs a Cobalt MJ-600 power-head pump for small tanks or a Cobalt MJ-1200 for large tanks to run. The pumps are IN STOCK NOW at SDC.

All the water gets forced through this fantastic new product ensuring the maximum filtration of phosphates, ammonia and other dissolved organics!

Replacement carbon and scavenger cartridges are also available.

The Fx Resinator Line is the most efficient filtration system on the market. The pressurized reactor, coupled with Blue Life USA’s powerful medias provide maximum filtration capacity. Easy setup and maintenance makes the RESINATOR Reactor the perfect one step filtration system for both beginners and experts alike.

What to do if your
shipment is delayed or lost

We want to remind everyone what to do if your shipment becomes delayed or lost.
Contact you SDC Sales Rep immediately to help expedite the shipping process and to help you with the process of doing a claim.
No matter if your shipment is two days late or a week late, it is ultra important to pick it up from the airlines so that SDC can have a chance to get a freight claim on your behalf. Regardless of what the airline rep says, ONLY THE SHIPPER (SDC) is allowed to do a claim.
In most cases, shipments that have been in transit for more than 48 hours have a very good chance of receiving a claim.
Helpful hints… Request a claim form from the airline representative. Get them to notate what the circumstances are with your order. Notate if the boxes are damaged or leaking. If they do not have a claim form then feel free to bring your own with you by downloading it from your airlines website. If you do not have a claim form then write some notes on the airway-bill BEFORE you load the freight on your truck and ask the rep to acknowledge what you mutually agree on by signing and printing their full name on the airway-bill or the claim form.
The next step is to get the fish back to the store and carefully acclimate them. Neutralizing the ammonia is the most important part of the process. First, float for temperature acclimation. Next cut open the bags and pour the fish gently into your buckets and measure the pH & ammonia levels. Neutralize the ammonia and begin to drip acclimate slowly.
While you are acclimating you can notate the DOA’s on a copy of the invoice that we sent to you.
Please photograph the DOA’s which can greatly aid in our attempt to get your claim.
We will need you to fax/email the DOA’s along with the claim form, photos and the airway-bill as soon as possible along with any other useful information about the situation.
While every situation has it’s own particular set of nuances, this is a general guide of the most important steps.
In review…
-Never Refuse a shipment… No one wins and everybody loses.
-Contact your SDC Sales Rep immediately if there is some unusual delay.
-Get a signed document from the airlines (claim form or airway-bill) detailing the circumstances
-Neutralize Ammonia before introducing a different pH level to the fish
-Send DOA’s, Claim Form, photos and YOUR Airway-bill copy to your Sales Rep.

Most of you will never have to deal with any of this but we want to make sure that you are aware of the proper protocol in the event of a claim situation.
Thank you all,
Your friends at SDC!!

Aquarium Lighting

“LED Showdown Winner”
“The highest quality aquarium LED’s on the market”
~ Carl Coloian – SDC Sales Rep & former Dry Goods Mgr. since 1992

Tunable Spectrum
Select the spectral point you prefer with full confidence your corals are getting what they need for optimal growth and color.
RICHMOND, CALIFORNIA (March 6, 2013) – Kessil® Lighting, a leading designer and manufacturer of high-quality LED aquarium lights, proudly announces the release of the A360N and A360W models. Based on the award-winning A350/A350W platform, winner of the Reef Builders 2012 LED Showdown, the A360 series brings new features and innovations to the industry and raises the bar for the competition.
The A360 features Kessil’s new proprietary Kessil Logic™, a unique form of spectral intelligence developed for precise color blending and optimal coral growth. In this new design, instead of varying the light intensity of two different channels to find the desired color and intensity mix, users can select the perfect spectrum and color with one knob and then adjust the intensity with the other. Kessil Logic™ will not only dramatically improve the user experience, it will also boost the light output at both ends of the spectral tuning range by as much as 30%.
In addition to its enhanced manual control-ability, the A360 comes with a pair of ports that allows the fixture to be governed by external devices. This new control interface operates within a 0-10VDC range, making it compatible with several popular aquarium external controllers. When daisy-chained in series without an external controller, the first A360 acts as the master unit propagating its settings to all other lights in the chain.
“We continually strive to bring great innovation to this industry,” says David Lowry, Kessil Sales Manager. “Adding Kessil Logic™ to Dense Matrix™ LED makes the A360 a product that is truly one of a kind!”


“For the second straight year, we compiled a pool of some of the LED lights that were released the previous year and asked you to tell us which one you felt was the most compelling and we are proud to announce the Kessil A350 as the winner of the 2012 Reef Builders LED showdown. We decided to make the contest a bit more dramatic by pitting the field of 32 against each other in a tournament-style bracket and after the smoke cleared it was an extremely tight contest with the Kessil A350 winning with 52% of the vote.
We wanted to say thank you to everyone that voted and chimed in on the contest – whether you loved it or hated it. We’ve seen the LED side of the hobby take off over the last few years and have come across so many worthy, innovative and intriguing lights (and plenty of duds as well). The contest was not to determine the best LED light on the market, the best PAR output, the most efficient light, the most used LED light, the best value, or the most features – this was just to determine which LED you found the most compelling.
We had a lot of fun putting this together and it did exactly what we hoped the contest would do, bring more exposure and more conversation around the quality lights that were in the market last year. We hope you had the chance to take a closer look at other vendors and have some new appreciation for the innovation in the market right now. With the first month of 2013 complete, we have 11 more months of great products and innovative LED lights to look forward too. So stay tuned!”

Shimmer – Beautiful shimmering effect gives your tank a natural, sunlit look rivaling MH. It’s like connecting with your own piece of the ocean.
Color Mixing – Dense Matrix LED™ technology blends different light wavelengths before they leave the light, providing uniform color throughout the tank. Single light source eliminates spotlight effect, spreading powerful light over a wide area.
UV – No matter which spectral point is chosen with the tunable spectrum, proprietary blend of precision UV light encourages coral color.
Design – Different models let you decide between maximum penetration or maximum coverage area. Engineered for long life, quiet operation, efficient cooling and maximum performance, all in a compact, low maintenance and attractive design.
Controllability – On/off timing, intensity and spectrum are adjustable either manually or with a 0~10V external controller. Lights can also be daisy-chained so adjustments to one light control all others.
