Poor packaging !!

Product arrived with 3 of 4 bulbs broken. Took me twenty minutes to clean boken glass debris out of fixture. Bulbs either need to be packaged seperately or to have padding placed around them inside canopy. There was plenty of padding on outside of box but this doesn't protect bulbs that jostle around inside fixture. Your staff was very understanding and helpful. Replacement bulbs are supposedly enroute to me free of charge. I will continue as a customer only because of this good follow-up service.

Power cord

Very disapointed to see only one power cord. The older model had two cords, one for each lamp, which I attached to two different timers. This option is no longer available. I wouldn't have purchased this item if I'd had known this before.

This baby gets hot

As several have mentioned, this baby generates some heat. after only a few hours I noticed the splash cover started to warp. So I removed it, because it is sitting on a piece of glass anyway. Otherwise the plexiglass splash cover would have melted. The whole unit gets very hot, the 12 inch unit has no fans, not sure if the larger ones do. Bulb choice is limited, but I am only Lighting my fuge.

wait n see

PROBLEMS: I have had 4 of these units in the last couple months. Ive had many broken bulbs from both the retail/online outlets. 1 of the units had a problem with the fan and eventually melted the acrylic cover. SUPPORT: The technical support from the retail & online outlets, as well as the manufacturer have all been superb in replacments. LIGHT: I love the light output. My soft corals have never looked so good or grown so fast. PRICE: These units can be pricey....over $2 per watt; but I found some exceptionally good deals on them. Paid less than $1 per watt. So considerably cheaper than high end fixtures. OVERALL: I will have to wait and see if the units hold up after a year or so to give a final thumbs up! I do feel good about the 3 units I am using now though!

Coralife Aqualight Power Compa

They don't tan as good as the tanning salons!Just kidding. Actually I haven't used it yet,I'm upgrading from a 30gal. tank to 50gal.I do use a Coralife Single 96 watt.Power Compact.I only have one coral at the moment a Sun Coral it's non photosynthetic.Just using the single has transformed my 30lbs.of Pohnpei Live Rock from gray to pink,red,purple and some shades of green coralline algae.The live rock is almost totally covered in just five months.I plan on using the single and the double light strips on my 50gal.tank which gives me 288 watts. Enough light to keep most corals if placed correctly in the tank.Not only would I recommend this light fixture I would recommend it over T-5's as well.

Fixture overheated

The 24" dual lamp fixture I received overheated after only a few hours of operation. The actinic lamp base became so hot it turned dark brown, cracked the glass bulb and melted the acrylic cover below it. Both lamps were on at the time and the fans were running. The air flow to the fixture was not obstructed. (It was just sitting on top of my tank cover, out in the open.)

A little noisy...

I ordered 2 of these lights and one was defective when I got it so I had to ship it back and will get a replacement for it. (Many thanks to Jason in your customer service department for his great service with our return!!) The lights seem to work very good, I hope that the plants in my freshwater tank will grow better now than with the standard lights the tank came equipped with. Since I have the new light for only a few days now I cannot say yet if it will really improve it, but it certainly is much brighter and looks better too. However, the cooling fan is a little noisy and I will have to get used to the constant humming in our living room. I am only running one unit now, when I get the second I hope it's not going to be too loud...
