Great light! Review by Erik/SHOmuchFUN
This is a great light. It looks nice over the tank and wont blind you if you keep it in frequently inhabited living spaces. This fixture has nice aluminum fins that keep the light from spilling into rooms where you don't want it.
The unit does not have any cooling, so you'll need a fair amount of fans as it gets pretty hot.
My only gripe about the unit is that the T-5 output is a bit weak, but this may just be the bulbs I have running in the unit.
The remote ballast is very nice with fan cooling, 3 switches (one for each halide and one for the T-5s). There are two cords for halide/T-5s to simulate dawn and dusk.
Overall I'm very happy with the unit, but will play around with the bulbs to find a sweet spot. (Posted on 7/19/2008)
