It dosn't give the watt's of the bulbs. From what i see there 40w, whitch in return will only give you 80watt. Totalling 1.5wpg at the most for a 55 or lager tank. i wouldn't pend that much for it. When I could go to lowes and get a shop light and two 50watt bulbs for around $30 bucks.

I really wouldn't buy that myself.

It looks as if it is one single bulb which, as formentioned, would top out at 40W in all likelyhood.

Get to lowes etc for thier lights that are half the price.

Tankless ... for now ... until i find what i really want (and what the wife lets me get!)
