I have 2 of those T5 lighting strips by CoraLife and 2 weeks ago I noticed one was all black inside and where the light went into the socket was all melted. So I was like oh no that fixture has seen better days. Then last night I check out my other one and the plastic is all melted, and it looks like it coulda caught my house on fire! I am extremely upset that both these light fixtures have done this and now my tank is without any lighting..... Anyone else had this problem with these lights? I wanted to contact them about this, but their website isn't even working.
I definitely would not use it as the fire hazard is great if you are having all those problems. SW might have found a way in there coroding wires and parts. When my VHO endcaps did that that is what happened.
