I had my biocube set up for about a year and a half... I got the scallop about a month ago and it is awesome! It likes to hang out in the back of the tank but it'll swim around every once in a while. I feed it plankton twice a week and its doing great.

I'll check those out too! They seem pretty reasonable. Thanks!

It should be in that price range. What size across is your tank?

I was browsing the web for you, and found the 24 inch 12,000k marine fusion white and blue for $101, the transformer is about $25. So for about $125 you can get an amazing light!!!!! And I found out last night that current-usa makes a dimmer for it too! I believe you can't beat the price or the quality!!!!

I have the odyssea 4 bulb t5 from aqua traders and everything is doing great in my tank. I did swap the bulbs out for giesmann bulbs and that seemed to wake everything up. All in I paid 100 for the bulbs and 70 for the fixture.

Some people scoff at these lights because they individual reflectors and some of the other features high end lights have, but for the money they work, and work well.

Can you send me the link?

And how often do have to change LEDs?

I was looking at the Odyssea 4x24 fixture too. And everyone that I've talked to said to trash the lights. lol

They are good for 50,000 hours, that is about 2083 days, or 5.7 years, that is if they were running for 24 hours a day! Lol 50,000 hours is a lot of time!!!!! since I am new to the forum it won't let me post websites. I will just write it out and you can translate the site: WorldWideWeb . current - usa . Com They are the truelumens brand from Current-USA. I ordered my dimmer for mine today.
