Get 2 120w led fixtures. Their $170 each and are amazing. This would be the best and cheapest upgrade

Here are some pics, the iPhone auto adjusts the light, so it doesn't give you an idea of how bright it really is.

The reason I compared the two light fixtures is b/c I wanted to illustrate the price difference between two items that are very similar,and I really like this style of light with the MH, T5 actinics, and LED moonlights all in one sleek fixture with fans and ballast I would definatly prefer american made stuff opposed to chinese, but the price difference was just too great, and like I said about possible future upgrades. like an Icecap ballast and some pheonix bulbs.
At least your having good luck w yours ... It looks cool and your fish seems to like it too the price is really good I love the moon lights is there a fixture that is just a moonlight? There's nothing wrong w my light now except it's bright bright lol I like the blue moon color a lot

I'd look at the led's too either the cheap strips as mentioned or maybe some 10w flood lights which are not too expensive either, like $50.
What lights do you have currently?

Here's a pic of my lights controls, so the two switches on the right are the front 2 and back t5 actinics (used in my blue pics above) the left 2 switches are for the moonlight led, and the fans. The switch for the metal halide lamp is on the ballast.
