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

Well then I stand corrected, regardless the ballast and reflector issue is enough to turn me away.

I just don't like the stigma around them and the history they have, I'd rather spend a bit extra and never have to worry and know in my mind I have a quality fixture.

I'm not trying to start a war over fixtures in any sense, I know this isn't the thread I was just trying to have wolf spend the money on one fixture and not have to worry and be done

LOL I'm just trying to get my facts straight before I buy another one.

Thanks for your opinion though, it carries weight with me.
