I have 3 fishneedit fixtures. Here are some pictures:
36" 2x39w on my 40 breeder-
To show the packaging:
2x 24" 4x24w on my 125g (hanging)-
The fixtures are nice IMO
. They're not top quality, but they're not junk. I've read dozens of reviews that say these fixtures are definitely much higher quality than other similarly priced units. They don't have fans, which would be nice, but mine never get ridiculously hot either. My 4 bulb fixtures do get considerably warmer than my 2 bulb fixture, but it's not ridiculous by any means. They have semi individual reflectors. This is important. From what I've read, a lot of the cheaper fixtures have a single reflector. These aren't individual, but they are molded around the bulbs in once piece, which reflects each bulb individually (make sense? think about those little freezer packs that are designed to fit around pop cans). They have nice long cords and the cord coming out of the ballast is long enough to mount the ballast to the wall or your stand and still have room to work with a power strip or timer.
I actually called the guy who runs the shop and asked him about exchanging my 2x39w for a 4x39w before it had shipped. He said they were out of stock right now, but I had a year to exchange it, all I had to do was pay shipping to return mine and cover the difference in cost if I wanted to exchange it when they were in stock. Now that I've thought about it, I'm not going to, but it's good to know they'll do that. I might, however, send back my two 24" fixtures and get two 4x39w fixtures for my 125... I guess we'll have to see.
, they're a really good deal. They ship fast (i ordered my last order on a sunday, had them on a thursday), are cheap, and have pretty good customer service. Let me know if you want any other pictures and I'll try to take some for ya.
