I've had it for about 4 months now. the light is nice, but the bulbs that come with it are nice but there already starting to burn out. T5 bulbs are suppose to last around 18 months. cheap bulbs
Great Light 4/22/2014
I have been running this fixture over my 75 gallon softie tank for the last 2 weeks and everything is super happy. The built in timer is great. No more appliance timers and power strips. I did replace all of the bulbs with ATI straight out of the box. I have no commits on the AquaticLife bulbs.
it's a great light, but the legs are in the way. you have to lift the light up to feed your fish. the legs block the glass canopy. if you need to move corals around, you have to take the light off the tank to get into your tank. I called tec support they said to buy are hanging kit. don't buy this light unless your going to hang it.
