Try to google what mr x is saying. The light fixture with ati lighting is night and day. Although it seems like all t5 are created equal, they are not. especially if using the ati lights.

still gonna cost another $200 plus for bulbs and brackets. I'm sure the light is great, I'm just not looking to spend that. I'm not doing a whole lot of coral anyway... I can't even keep my fish from dieing in water that checks out just fine. I just lost 2 fish today with a perfect water test. When it's time to replace bulbs I will buy the api ones. No need to apologize Patrick, whatever helps man

Send a message via MSN to mr_X
i don't see anywhere if that fixture is UL listed or not, and chances are, if they don't write that in the description, it isn't. maybe contact the seller and ask them. 300 bucks for a knock-off fixture doesn't sound like a great deal to me. you are definitely going to get what you pay for in this case.

I'd just spend the extra $40-50 and go with Current USA, plenty of experienced aquarists recommend that fixture, so you know it's a quality product.
