It might catch fire. Those odyssea MH have a reputation for that. I like their T5's though.

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

Carey the reputation of Odyssea MH catching fire is from years ago.You can take the Coralife name tag off their fixture and compare it to an Odyssea and you won't be able to tell the difference .

I don't know about the MH fixtures but I currently own 2 of their t5 setups. One is an awesome fully loaded unit from years ago and one is from more recent stock. I am a huge supporter of odyssea, in T5.....I think it's still too early to tell about the MH ones. I am really really cheap btw, and I wouldn't chance it if that's any indication.
LOL
