I just received this light for my tank on Friday. Very disappointed in the quality of the light fixture. The bulb connections are very poor and I had difficulty getting the lights to light. After much twisting of the bulbs in and out I finally got all four bulbs to light but not without sparks on one of the connection and then the unit starting to smoke and make crackling noises. As soon as I placed it on my tank the white bulbs went out again. After tinkering with them they came back on. Then the atinic bulbs went out. I decided that this light is a fire hazard and went back to my old light. I will be returning this light to the Seller. In addition, you have a separate plug for the fan on this light which I think is dumb. The fan should come on automatically with the light and go on a off with the heat of the light. Yes, this light was cheap but I once again, I got what I paid for. A piece of junk. I just wish there was a review from Amazon on this light so I would have known. So I am putting one on now for future buyers.

ok so i set up this light today and i thought it was good at fist until i got my hands wet. i dipped my hand in the tank the took them out and wiped them with a paper towel so the were just a little wet but not dripping or anything then i touched the top of the light and got a really bad electric shock. it really was bad because if im am also ever leaning over the lght or anything and its not wet if it hits a sensitive nerve like in the elbow or finger tip it hurts to much to even touch it. its like a fear not. its worse then getting shocked by a wall outlet because it just stings the whole body. also the fan is very loud and never goes off and its on a separate plug so it has to be on a timer. other then that it works.

It doesn't fit my tank!!! I have a 110 gallon aquarium, slightly over 48 inches long. When the feet on this light are extended as far as they will go, they sit correctly on one end, but the other end is just about 1/16th of an inch too short. I'm going to have to saw off the lip on two of the feet in order to use the light with the legs, as it is intended.

There is only one small fan to cool the entire unit, located in the center of the back. The fan-like openings you see on the ends of the light fixture in the photo are just open vents for incoming air. There is no fan behind them. Air comes in through the ends, passes over the bulbs, then over the ballast at the back of the fixture, and gets blown out of a very small vent at the back of the unit. The fan is powerful but the downside is that it can seem loud in a quiet house.

The directions you receive after you purchase the item provide some CRITICAL information which isn't in the product description anywhere:

You can't mount this light fixture inside of an aquarium lid. It will overheat - period. There is no wiggle room here. Unless you're an electrical engineer and can rebuild the whole unit with more fans or something. One interesting thing about fluorescent lighting is that if it is operated at a non-optimal temperature, it will affect the light output of the bulbs. If you're going to spend lots of money on special reef bulbs, then operating them at a high temperature sort of defeats the purpose.

Although it has a clear splashguard to protect the bulbs, the light is designed to be used over a glass aquarium lid - there are dire warnings against using it without an additional layer of glass between it and your tank. I find this incredibly annoying because regular 48 inch glass aquarium lids are also about 1/16 of an inch too short for my tank!

If you need something quiet, look elsewhere, the fan in this thing is pretty loud. Other than that, I had great PAR values coming from this light with ATI and Geissman bulbs in it. Grew out all types of corals, but probably not as fast as they could have.
