Doing research on lights. Based on quality, durability and functionality. A fixture that's a more than enough for freshwater and maybe good for saltwater, too, because I might have a reef set up in the future, but just freshwater for now.
Also, please let me know if I'm missing any good brands/fixture models.
I really like the 24 hour fixture from Marineland and I think is good for both, salt and fresh.
