HI, I'm not sure how to post a link here. Can you help? But for now, there is a T5 and a T6 on ebay. Both are 216 watts and have 4 bulbs and the T6 has moon lights on it. The item # for the T5 is (200121316209) and for the T6 is (380024137820) Thank you, John

48" T6 High Output Aquarium Compact Lighting 216W, > T5 - eBay (item 380024137820 end time May-10-08 03:51:04 PDT)
This may be a case of "you get what you pay for". The T5 is made by Marineland (not sure on the quality) and the T6 I can't find a name brand. You may want to save up and get better quality lighting. If anyone knows about the quality of these two items, feel free to correct me.

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

Neither fixture appears to have individual parabolic reflectors over each bulb. That will greatly reduce the amount of light hitting your tank. Take it from someone who is on their 3rd light fixture. Save until you can afford a quality fixture rather buying something inferior.

Check out www.catalinaaquarium.com Their fixtures are pretty good and have been getting good reviews.

In the DC Metro Area? Check out GWAPA and WAMAS
