What you hear on the Internet is not always a faithful reflection of reality.

I have some Kessil stuff in hand. Light, mounting arm, controller, all made in Taiwan. What's inside, I dunno. Taiwan is 100% okay with me, so much that I doing Kessil's at home for a new freshwater tank.

Hydroponics? Dunno 'bout that neither. Awfully spendy for growing fruits and veggies, or even decorative plants. Maybe growing weed? Told Seachem that the number one theft item in our store is Excel. Seachem dude told me people use Excel to grow weed. Could be, could be. I suspect he was just kidding, though.

Flourite, Eco-Complete, and Stratum (we sell a lot of that stuff) are all made in USA too. As is my favorite substrate - dirt from my yard.

I talk to Kessil all the time. The LEDís are made in the US am sure there are bits made over seas.
I think customers want cheap aquarium equipment. An made in the USA is not going to be cheap equipment.
