He may have just keeled over and there was probably nothing to be done about it.

Okay... got my light but extremely frustrated. Came with no instructions or anything! Plugged it in, all was well, but it doesn't fit properly on the tank... the brackets are too long, so it is resting on the glass. Okay but here comes another problem... the dumb connector for the two pieces of glass is right smack in the middle where I want to put the light so it's blocking some of the light output. What do I do??

So I guess I will just have to rip the glass out of the rubber connector... Seems like such a waste. Overall, I'm quite happy with the light. It puts out a really nice color.

The lighting looks good! I just have my light sitting behind that black part on my freshwater tank. That way I can open the lid in the front to feed the fish.

That won't work for me... the light is too wide front to back, so that it bumps against the filter and part of it is still touching the rubber connector. I think I'm just going to rip the glass out of it and make do.

The blue lighting really makes it look more... salt-watery. lol

Okay, was able to slide the glass out of the connector, worked great! I can always put them back in if I need to. Now it looks even brighter, and works great. My LFS is having sales on corals this week, including zoas for as low as 5 dollars. Is everything in the clear zone for me to get my first coral?

Lol my hermits make me laugh... Tonight one of them switched into a really pretty shell that's nearly double the size of his old shell... I was like, hey why is that shell moving?? then I realized there was his empty shell laying on the sand. Not sure how's he lugging that thing around with him, but it looks like I have a totally different hermit double his size!

I don't think a $5 zoa should break the bank. Good test to see if you are where you want to be.
