Adquate

Honestly I already had one spare of these and the light fixture need two. If you have a freshwater tank or a fish only saltwater tank these are a good option. If you have or are planning a reef tank GET RID OF THEM AND UPGRADE TO LEDS. I don't care how many of these you use over your tank. New LEDS are far more efficient than these could ever hope to be in terms of power consumption and light quality...

Nice bulbs

These bulbs are nice and bright. The 4500hr lifespan gives you 15 months at 10 hrs. a day so I hope to get a solid year of good output, we'll see. I have 4 of these and two 48" super actinic T-8's above my 150 gal. replacing two 48" coral life 12,000K bulbs and the above mentioned actinic bulbs. The colors of the fish and coral are much more vivid and the light penetration is much improved. For about $100/yr. I'll likely be using these bulbs for many years, time will tell. I would recommend these bulbs to anyone.

No hassel exchange.

I received two actinic/white fixtures - they were both broken at the glass cross over and so did not work. This appears to be a weak point during manufacturing. I called Customer Service to discuss replacing them. That call resulted in a no hassle replacement of the broken fixtures within just a couple of days. The product itself seems somewhat cheaply made, but the customer service was terrific!

Very Good

I've had them now for at least 3 months on my 125G tank, and all my coral are happy as can be. Great lights for a great price. I'll be buying them again!

Acceptable so far.

These lights have good look to the eye, my corals haven't died yet. I will be curious to see if my BTA likes them as well. Would be nice to accent with LED's.
