Thank you for having 2 switches because just 2 bulbs is enough light for my 30x18x10. I love how I can use this light for my next bigger aquarium too. My only issue was with the acrylic lens cover, it was cut a little to small and it fell out when I turned the fixture over. 5of5

Great Product

I ordered the 4 bulb 48" fixture for my 55 gallon reef which replaced a home built 24" fixture with a 250 watt metal hailde and 4 55 watt pc's. Obviosly the light I had was, although in conformity with the watts per gallon theory, too small. The Tek Light made a tremendous difference. The only problem I have with it is the "cable" suspension I ordered is really nothing more then string and is a pain to adjust properly. I probably would get the stand off mount if I had to do it over again. I did have a string of LEDs which I fashioned along the back edge of the light with cable ties and they work well for a moonlight effect. Overall I am pleased. I ordered a combination of 2 Giesemann Actinic+, 1 Aquablue+, and 1 ATI Purple+. The bulbs arrived in perfect condition from half way across the country. Product does now include a splash shield.

Tek Light

I'm really happy with my Tek light! My corals are loving it too. I would like to put in a couple strips of led moon lights, but there doesn't really seem to be any room for them anywhere on the fixture.

bright awesomeness

I purchased this 156W version to replace my 96W PC. The first thing I noticed when I unwrapped this was how nice and sleek the fixture was. The design is is awesome. I purchased the mounting brackets, they were quite easy to install. When I finally plugged in the T-5s, the first thing I did was only turn on 2 of the tubes. At 78W, these were already producing more light than the 96W PC I was replacing. When I turned on all 4....man, this thing rocks!! The only customizing I am going to do is to make a 'skirt' for the light so that my living room isn't overwhelmed with all the light coming from the Tek light. Essentially, all I am going to do is get some sheet metal of the right height, spray coat it black and fix it to both the front and back of the fixture to make a mini-hood. Fantastic light, no noise, nice look...awesome.

Great light

This is a great light, I bought a few that was used and performance was good. only because the reflectors are dirty from salt. I decided to buy this new one because of the price and I got tired of picking up after others stuff. I like to take care of my things, which led me to this purchase. if you want to grown corals, this is the cheap way to go without draining to the bank. 8 bulb 48" is plenty for a 120 fatboy. I do recommend using the spash guard and over a glass canopy to keep the reflectors at mint condition. I strongly believe that it does perform better even if bulbs are old vs new bulbs with dirty reflector.

There have been some changes..

The manufacturer changed a couple of things about this fixture. It now comes with a splash shield. They also changed the reflector. The older model came with individual reflectors. This one has a single reflector made in a vvvvv design. Sunlight Supply says their reflector has been improved. I guess only time will tell. Overall this is still one of the best fixtures on the market. I traded out my Current Sundial for this fixture. There is only one thing I would add to this fixture...lunar lights. I added my own to complete the fixture.

4) 60" tek light

Excellent , WELL BUILT fixture. I debated purchasing cheaper units but was glad I bought this.Other "60" inch units sold here are actually eight 48" lamps. Be very careful not to purchase those. You will have a dead spot in the center of a 72" aquarium. I build the fixture in my canopy and its silent and cooler than 4) 24" compact florescents I had previously.I no longer have problems with the tank raising temp much above 79.6 degrees after 6 hours of use and temp set to 78 degrees.Excellent product. You wont be sorry.BTW, website did an excellent job packaging the bulbs. Cost an extra $21.00 BUT WORTH IT.
