REVIEW
Wow, great light output and plenty of cords! As noted in other reviews the fan is loud and I'll be looking for a quieter replacement soon. This affordable light replaces a coralife quad 96w unit and I could'nt be happier with this purchase.

REVIEW
I am using it for my sump, great product for the price, only drawback, you have several plugs (one for each light). Considering what you get for the price, I can deal with that. Low profile and nice design.

Have had this light installed for about a week now on my FO Marine 29gal High tank and am impressed. Good wattage for a 30" casing giving me 3.8 watts/gal which would be enough for most coals. Considering a comparable Metal Halide light would run about 2.5x the price, you really can�t beat the ...Read More
