Power Compact Hood Battle!!!!

Which lighting system out of these 3 is the best?

Current USA Orbit 36" 2x96 compact strip light w/3 lunar lights

36" Coralife Lunar Aqualight Moonlight Hood 2 x 96 watt power compact bulbs and 2 Lunar Moonlights

Current USA 36" Satellite Fixture 2 x 96 watt power compacts with 1 lunar moonlights

this would be for a 46 gal reef tank (70-80 lbs of lr with ls)g with med to heavy amount of coral, anemones , and inverts with a few small fish.

Any personal experiences would be helpful. Any and all comments would help.

Build a man a fire and he will be warm for a day. Set a man on fire and he will be warm for the rest of his life.

Go with the coralife. A much more reliable product in my opinion. I sell both brands and recomend the coralife. Current USA is good but Coralife has a much better customer service if something goes wrong! watt for watt the light output is about equal. I personally use coralife lights on my sons 26 bow.
