I just bought an oddyssea for my 55 and I was not happy! I sent it back and am ordering a Coralife.

Oddysea's Jebo is the brand.. its new to me though.. what was wrong with the light you had Dr.Nate? the price difference is big between oddysea's jebo and coralife.. It would have to be a problem I couldnt fix for me to send it back to buy the other.. you can get these elsewere by the way if you are leary about aquatraders..e-bay has some users that have great feedback scores selling these at the same good prices..

When i read nasty feedback on EBAY with the ODYSSEA lights, one guy complained it nearly burned his house down, 2 others complained of shoddy wiring inside. I checked the Jebo light for negative feedback and all i could find was broken bulb issues.

Maybe they are pushing the limits with the Odyssea Vs the Jebo. From what I read they are using the same bulbs just a different Balllast. Maybe a bad batch or maybe Jebo has better quality checks or maybe they use the same wiring size for both lights and it generates too much heat because of the increased wattage. I'm glad I read the feedback though because I almost went with the ODYSSEA lights. Besides 220 watts will be enough for a 90 gallon with fish only.
