I did have them half way up to the light though, do you think thats why I had better luck? In fact I bleached a brightly colored brain coral to death under my lights and he was on the substrate.
Just curious not being argumentative.
Actually, yes. I believe I posted it somewhere else that the reflectors they use aren't good, and the ballasts they use don't work up to the power they're advertised at. Added someone posted that you have to buy their bulbs since they don't use common sizes, which means you can't use ATI or Giessman bulbs which means less power.
