coralife fan noise

I just got the 30" coralife lunar aqualight with 2 65 watt bulbs. when i turned on the 10,000k light, one of the fans seemd pretty loud. i didnt think anything of it until a freind that has the same lights said his werent as loud. the only one that is making a very noticable noise is the one farthest to the left. so i was wondering, does anyone with coralife lights notice much of a noise from one or more of the fans?

I wouln't bother with the light if it isn't making to much noise its just the way the fan opperates if its really annyoing then call them and ask them. Otherwise let it be. I had the same problem with my sump for about 5 months then my "Dr. Tim" came over and fixed it. So I would just put up with it.

I've got the coral lunar aqualight 2x96- no problem with fan noise - but I'm on my third replacement in so many weeks- the LEDs keep blowing. Any idea why?

My 36" Lunar Light has the same problem. The fan (furthest from the switches) is very loud. The other is almost so quiet I don't hear it.

It's being replaced next week. I'm somewhat disappointed with the Coralife as I'd heard so many positive things about it compared to the Current USA/CSL fixtures.

Hopefully the replacement will be better.
