I think someone who had a pair of 24/7s said that when the power button was pressed, one unit powered on and the other powered off. Eek.
I did not buy a 24/7 because of the 24/7 mode but it has been working great in my shrimp tank. It's in the bedroom so the gradual light changes are welcome. No sudden ON or OFF.
Hope this unit can do the same for your tank.
Surpluses perhaps. Or a common provider.

You have tanks in the bedroom?!?!?! Man... new house doesn't even have a tv in there. The noise machine and occasional cat showdown is it..

Just one. Not everyone has a fish room. 🐟🐟🐟 The other tank is in the home office. Maybe in my next house there will be a room with a concrete/tile floor with a sink or at least a floor drain.
The 24/7 mode is like a giant night light.
That vendor had historically sold fluorescents for dirt cheap. I suppose it was a matter of time. If these prove to be as good as the the originals, then you've got a super deal there.

Got mine the other day. Had some issues the first day, similar to issues I experienced with the finnex actually. It's up and running fine now. Def not as powerful as the finnex but same basic song and dance.

My problem with the 24/7 was the IR sensor. It was returned and swapped. I imagine issues with the 24/7 would be present with the Vivagrow.
