The mounting brackets slide into the light fixture for a secure mount, so it wont slide and drop into the tank. The kit comes with (2) 4ft wire cords to screw into the top of the tank so you can hang it from the ceiling if you need more space for larger plants. The two light bulbs have independant on/off switch's but only one 3ft power cord. It keeps your timer from getting cluttered with two many power cords. You will need an extention cord if your outlet is farther that 3ft away from you light or your tank is up higher than mine..
The platic bulb cover slides out one side of the fixture to install light bulbs. There is a thin plastic wrapping on the glass from packaging, remove this film. It is very easy to clean, since the entire fixture is mounted on hinges.
From end to end the entire fixture is 32 inches wide and the mounting brackets can be positioned anywhere under the fixture, so this light will secure to any size tank 32inches wide or less.
Inside where the bulbs go, there is a reflector for maximum light exposure to the tank. The bulbs and reflector are protected by the clear plastic cover, so dust and algea can not reach them.
Can't beat the price or quality of this product. 5 stars...
DUAL SWITCHES!!! This is an amazing feature if you need to turn one off to control algae and is what steered me to go for this lamp over many others!
COST. Compared to other dual T% HO fixtures this one runs at about half the price and seems to be a great product.
QUALITY FEEL. Although I can not attest to longevity, the light feels very durable and is actually a metal casing and not plastic. Power cord is thick and sturdy.
REFLECTOR. Comes with a highly polished reflector already in the lamp. Also has the plastic window below the bulbs for protection from water and it slides in and out of place very easily.
Short power cord, unless the outlet is right next to the tank you WILL need an extension cord. Also the power cord is on one side and the dual switches on the other. Every other light I have owned has had switches and the cord on one side, the back, so this is different for me but at least it has switches unlike the Hagen Glo system.
Also the overall size of this product seems big! The bulbs housing seems very large for what it needs to be. Also the mounting options including hanging, bolting to the side of the aquarium which makes it impossible to use a hood, or placing it directly onto the top of the glass top. I wish it had legs so you can elevate it and just place it on the top of the hood. I plan on having a custom sheet of glass cut to allow for the light to be bolted onto the tank.
Great light for a great price!Read more ›

I gave it four stars because it does not have separate power cords for the bulbs. Some people like to have Actinic come on first and then the daylight bulbs with timers. Other than this it is great, built well, easy to install. Interesting that they put the on/off buttons on the front, not sure yet if I like this or not.

Only takes zoo med premium bulbs. So if they ever stop making their T5's....you're out of luck.
I ended up returning it as soon as it came because I found the Finnex... Read more

The actual light put out by the product is great, however the lights frame is flimsy and the protective cover for the bulbs is very weak. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Josh Tidmore
What a great 2 bulb light. I like the fact you can flip the light up to access the tank. Keep in mind that if you have a hang on the back filter, the flip up option will not work. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Robert Albrecht

This was a replacement fixture for a prior Zoo Med double light that died after only 3 years (I think the ballasts died so that one light would not work). Read morePublished 14 months ago by Chloemann
