that was the determining factor for me. when I realized it would cost more every 6 months to replace bulbs than a new Chinese LED that is rated for well over 5 years costs, it was a no brainer.
figure in the savings in the energy bill and it's a win/win.

Is there a way of not hanging these lights from the ceiling? Anyone had any experience of this?

Mounting in the canopy is really simple and takes most, if not all the clutter out. I'm going canopy on my new tank build because I don't care for the light shed outside the rim of the tank..
