Mine was really cloudy at first because of all the waste matter. Now my water is much more clear than before the powerheads.

I know it's been a while, but money has been tight but I finally got my tax return back. The very next day I ordered the Nova Extreme Pro 6x54w. According to FedEx, the fixture should be here today! I'll make sure to take plenty of pictures, especially before and after shots.

Stay tuned...

At first I was a bit afraid that the bulbs would be broken because it didn't look like FedEx took very good care of the box, but everything was ok.

Before:


After:



I have to admit, when I first turned on this light I thought it was too bright, and the fans were too loud; almost to the point I was thinking of returning. I thought about the reviews and every one of them said how happy they were with the quietness, so I didn't want to take chances.

After a few hours with the TV on, I got used to the fans, now I hardly notice them. I am still getting used to the lights, but in time I know I'll get used to it.

This is so true. A few months from now some friends will come over and say what`s that noise and you`ll say "what noise". LOL. It happened to me also.
