I"m with Bearfan...I trust coralife fixtures because I've used them and could see the quality.
Lots of the cheaper fixtures, like those 40-80watt ones DrsFosterSmith.com had...were terrible. Units that wouldn't even fire up because there were defective...and obviously cheaply made.

I mean, you can barely buy 2 65watt power compact bulbs for $40...and even a cheap electronic ballast runs $20.

So yeah, I'll be really interested to hear about long-term satisfaction with these units.

Former advisor and planted tank geek...life's moved on though.

Malkore, Where can you get a electric ballast for PC lights. My corallife 65w pc light died and I looked on the net with no luck. So I ordered one of the Odyssea lights from aquatraders. Worth a shot.
