If u r planning on buying lighting from aquatrader do urself and ur house a favor and dont buy Odyssea lights. Search Odyssea lighting on google and u will read hundreds of horror stories about them catching fire. They have crappy wiring and cooling fans. Ballasts catch fire all the time from what i have read after doing some research. The phrase "if it seems to good to be true it probably is" comes to mind here.

I couldnt find any of those horror stories...could you post some links? Is this with the MH only, or with the T-5 and PC as well?

I bought t-5 lighting 6 months ago and have not had any problems, I recently bought 2 more 4 ft T-5 units but they havent been running a week yet. I would be interested in reading this.
