Anybody have this light?

Current USA Orbit Marine Aquarium LED Light, 24 to 36-Inch (or any length)?

Going for 149.99 or 159.99 free shipping.

This is sure looking tempting if my canopy with built in light can't be fixed for cheap!

I had the light and replaced it when I wanted my coral to actually grow!

That is good to know.

I am still trying to find out if I can get a reasonably priced conversion or something for my tank's canopy. The lights rusted out, there was a Actinic and a 10000k before. I guess I will need a new post for a retrofit LED. A new light hood is 179. It is a JEBO New r375 and the light hood is part of the all in one type tank.

Coralife T5HO 30" light

How about this, a 2 month old light for $40.
It is this... 1 10k and 1 Actinic Coralife T5HO dual light

I have the 48-60" orbit marine, and i have to say i like it. It's adjustable, and comes with a built-in timer and different weather patterns. A little pricey, but i couldn't be happier. As for coral growing, my hairy mushroom and my yellow rock polyp seem to like it.

I'd 100% get the orbit over that dual t5 fixture

Thank you!!!

One is $40. and one is 140, lol. Maybe I will get the dual t5 as a temporary measure, then use it on my other tank like seaweed. I don't have the extra 100 atm, (car repairs like Pacman are eating my $$ :/) I need to decide by this afternoon, (maybe I can offer him $30 instead!)

I can start cycling my tank w/o a light too, right?
