Some of those have been known to catch fire. I've also been told (notice I do not have personal experience with these), that the reflectors suck. For just a few bucks more, you can get a FNI fixture that I can say from personal experience is a good quality fixture. It doesn't have parabolic reflectors, or a name like Current on it, but works great and has remote ballasts, which I think is a big plus. Here's the link - 4Ft/4Bulbs fixture. The hanging kit that's available is also really nice, as you can hang it above the tank and not have to worry about it.
