I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Yeah, but they last 50,000 hours, cost nothing to run and won't cook your tank...all good things. Compare that to the $130 for just two atinic bulbs that will last a year (less than 3800 hours at 10hours a day),
