Love this lighting system! I have the 48" Lamp on my 75 gallon ciclhid tank. Great price and great product! Slim design.
Only negative thing I have found so far is that i noticed a small temperature spike. But nothing adjusting the heater didn't fix.
Constantly Overheats 6/18/2013
It is constantly overheating and will shut off and will not come on for hours later. I found this out on the very first day of using it. And now a couple days in only one bulb will turn on. The 2nd light fixture that I have for my tank does not overheat (it is a different brand).

In general I like the low profile light and its price. I've purchased at lleast one of each size and the all perform the same. In about a year of use one of the two bulbs will burn out causing both not to work. The spare bulbs are relative inexpensive, if purchase when they are on sale.
