I have recently bought a Marine setup from my LFS
(I have kept a tropical tank for the last three years!). Unforunately I have had nothing but problems with the Interpet T5 Luminaire(s!) supplied. I have had four different units so far (also lots of replacement bulbs!), with failures ranging from one of the elements failing, loud buzzing noise, to loud bangs and smoke!
I have my equipment on a surge protected gang with RCD, and nothing else is having any problems, so I think my electrics can be ruled out.
Is this a common problem with the Interpet Units? Does anybody have any experience of the Arcadia units as an alternative (or any other make/model)?
