I use these fixtures for both my planted aquariums that needed enough moderate light for growing my plants. The Coralife T-5 fixtures use less energy and "heat" so do not have loud fans as many fixtures do. In addition you can double these fixtures up as they are slim. It's easy to find this particular fixture elsewhere but they usually come with a 18W 10,000k bulb and a 18W blue actinic bulb which is not optimal for growing live plants. (the actinic bulbs are good for growing corals in saltwater) This particular fixture comes with the 10,000k and a 6700k bulbs and is a perfect combo of bulb types for plants.

First of all, when this light works, it's fantastic. It's the perfect length for my 37 tall. It's bright and my plants just love it. I really want one that works ALL the time. That's why I'm currently returning the second one that Amazon has sent me. Both of them have worked for two days, then got very flakey about turning on (flickering, and not starting up). I really hope the third time is a charm and the next one works well.

I have two fixtures of the same brand in the 24" length on my 55 gallon aquarium. I've NEVER had a problem with them, so it seems like it's an issue particular to the 30" model. If the next one works like it should, I'll update my rating. Keeping my fingers crossed.

UPDATE: The third one did not work, either. I'm advising you not to order this item. Changed my rating from 2 to 1 star, since I can't give it zero. We gave this model 3 tries, and none of the fixtures worked for more than 4 days. Epic Fail. The only thing we can figure is that the 30" model is made at a different plant, or with different parts other than the light tubes. Something makes it severely inferior to the 24" model.

I've had three Coralife T5 fixtures, and they have all failed within 18 months. Both of my 36" units failed within a month of each other, outside the 1 year warranty period. All three lamps failed in the exact same manner: One of the bulbs blackened on one end, melting the plastic splash guard. Two melted a hole clean through it, one melted the plastic up onto the bulb itself. The plastic bracket that connects the bulb ends to the wiring also became brittle and failed on the bulbs that burned out, making it very difficult to remove or install a bulb in that slot. The reflector behind the bulbs also showed signs of heat damage and distortion. After the bulb failures, these units never light up again.

The first unit to fail did so during the warranty period, and Coralife immediately replaced it. The other two were out of warranty, and the company didn't even respond when told how catastrophically they had failed. After 3 failures that could have possibly started a fire, and the lackluster support from Coralife, I no longer feel comfortable spending my money on their lamps and leaving them running when I'm not around. I strongly encourage you all to skip these lamps, and keep looking for a safer, more reliable setup.

I purchased this to replace a standard fluorescent strip light on a 46 gallon bow front aquarium. It works very well and they price was excellent for a T5 fixture. My old light only put out 18 watts. This fixture puts out 42 watts, is low profile, and gets warm but not hot. It comes with a 6700K daylight bulb (greenish light), and a colormax bulb (pinkish light). The 6700K light is best for the plants, but it is a little green for my tastes. I may switch it out for a 10,000k bulb later. The colormax really helps the colors on my barbs to pop. This set-up should work very well for low to medium light plants. The light arrived quickly and was well packaged.

I was happy with this fixture. It works well on my 29 gallon 30" tank. However, less than 2 months after purchase, one bulb is out and the other one is very dark on one end. I went to Petsmart and picked up 2 new bulbs (for almost the cost of this fixture). And now it's working well again. Hopefully this was a fluke with the bulbs that came with the fixture.

UPDATE: 4 months later and it's dead. This light or it's ballasts must be poorly made. The light flashes on briefly if you tap the top of it, and then it flickers on and off. Additionally the new bulbs I put in about 2 months ago are already very dark on the ends. What a disappointment. I really liked the slim style, and fairly affordable. But all that means nothing if it doesn't work.

After a great deal of searching for a simple, low-cost aquarium light with moderately bright light (enough for plants with low-medium light requirements) I found this Coralife double T5 fixture with a 6500k bulb (good for plants) included. It is very slim/low profile with an attractive anodized black housing. So far, it works excellent. The fish are happy and the plants are doing well.

Product worked great for the first month, but it just went downhill from there. At first one of the bulbs would go off randomly, then after having had the product for less than two months, the light fixture completely failed. It does not even turn on now.

I just sent Aqueon an email inquiring about replacement or refund, so we will see how that goes--

Caveat emptor!

***UPDATE: After waiting for a response for 20 days, Aqueon finally got back to me and informed me that they will replace the unit as it is still under the one year warranty. So yeah, customer service appears to be a little slow.
