REVIEW
I have had two of these units on my 120 gallon tank for about a month now, used in conjunction with their New Controller. The lights are a major step forward from the Ecoxotic units that I was previously using. I have the units placed roughly 6 inches above the top of my tank, which has a glass c...Read More

REVIEW
I love this product, the output is amazing. I have two of them on my 120 g and I'm only using 70% of the max. Also, if you get the director, the possibilities are endless from simulating weather of any place around the world including thunderstorms, sunrise/sunset, to moon lighting.
