I have not used this lighting fixture, but from what I have read here people that have them like them. Downside...poor customer service and no phone # to contact the company. The quality of this product has gone up a bit over the last couple of years.

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

I have one - I really like it. I really have not had any problems with it. You might notice more algae growth, but all of my photosynthetic inverts like the lights.

I have another unit on order for my new larger tank.
You know you are a true fish-o-holic if you can field strip any powerhead on the market.

I have the Current Dual Satellite 260w with the 2 moon lights and fans. I like it a lot (it just isn't enough light for my 120; it is 11" wide and my tank is 24"). We considered adding a second fixture but decided to just bite the bullet and add MH. So far it has done well for us. We're keeping all kinds of corals with it for now but the growth since we've added 2 hrs of MH a day has been just amazing.
