I had one on my 55 but when I upgraded to a 75 I also changed lights. I like the marineland though. I just like to try new things. I did however love the shimmer effect from the light.

This is the marineland DB LED.

This is my upgraded light system T5 HO's

You can see the difference right away.

Hope this helps.

What is your bulb spread on that thing? I have a t5HO on my 72, 4 bulb setup...absolutely HATE the bulbs it came with: gives everything a yellowish/greenish tinge, but I LOVE the blue-ish hue yours have...

I'm using the deep blue solar extreme 48" fixture.
