Comments: THIS FIXTURE AND THE BULBS PURCHASED FROM YOU DO NOT PRODUCE AS MUCH LIGHT OR INTENSITY AS THE 4 HO FLUORESCENT TUBE FIXTURE I WAS CURRENTLY USING. NOT ONLY DOES IT NOT PUT OUT THE INTENSITY BUT THE TANK ON EITHER END OF THE 36" IT IS VERY DULL. MY TANK IS 36" AND 50 GALLONS.

Comments: When the system arrived, it was packaged perfectly(thanks marinedepot!). It has a seperate single unit box that contains all the ballasts with a built in fan. There are vents on both sides of the ballast box so don't block them or the unit will heat up! I recommend laying it down. There is plenty of cord to keep it away from the tank. I bought the 2x250, 2x110 48" fixture and it's super bright. The fixture has a removable plexi glass shield so you can add LED lights to the fixture and replace the bulbs. I can't wait to see how my corals like the lighting system, my tank is new and only has live rock/sand currently. For the price, you can't beat the quality.

Comments: Everything included in this is very well made....except for the documentation. I really like the fact that the ballasts are Advance. It's a decent brand to go with and I'm surprised they're included for something at this price. I'm using 250w XM 15000k's and I couldn't be happier. Well I could but I'd be spending major bucks.

Comments: This light hood is amazing! I use one 175w 10000k Hamilton MH, and 2 75w Super Actnic in it. It fits right on top of my Redsea Max. Now I have 9.66 Watts per gallon on my Max. Could not be happier!!!

Comments: The Captive Sun Deluxe Hood was easy to install. I would recommend the CoralVue ReefLux 10000K MH lights for the hood. The fan system was more than adequate to handle the heat generated by the MH bulbs. Also, the ballast runs cooler than most ballasts I have used or seen. I think this is a solid buy for the money and you won't be disappointed. The only drawback (if you want to call it that) is that there's no internal LED moon light system.
