I got the 30" fixture 2x65w + 2 lunars and in Februaury and I loved them until this week. Both of the lunar lights went out. I am going to contact Coralife and see what they can do, but I wasn't very smart and I did not send in the waranty card. Other than that, they ar really nice.

I kept the lunars on 24hrs a dat per the adivse of people here. I am not sure if that had any effect.

BTW....How do you plan on getting rid of your MH Lighting???????? 8)

I will be selling my MH lights. I have someone interested, If they do not buy, I will be selling them. I will probably post them on here.

I did not have the top on....

On the plus side, I called Coralife during lunch and they said that they would send me 2 new LED's and enter me into their warantee system even though I do not have my original recepit....

GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE......

I was considering getting another fixture for my new tank, but I think I will stick to Coralife.....
