        I've had this light fixture for a year and a half, two months ago the lights stopped working. but the lights still work. last night, out of know where the light bulb connection melted then sat on the lense and melted. I wouldn't trust this product. try something different

          Excellent Light,just got it and can already see difference in color of fish, plants already giving better colors and sure to give better growth, had an Aquasun lamp and returned to local Petstore. It's great that you can link extra fixtures for more light. Excellent product, will definitely buy again.

            This product is great for aquarists who are just starting out in planted tanks. It may not be the best for people who want a high-tech tank but with the ability to link systems together it is perfect (or can be made perfect) for any level of aquarium keeper.

            I highly recommend!

              Comments about T5-HO Freshwater Linkable Light Fixture - 2 x 24 W - 24":

              out of the box it was great.parts were easy to find, and right off the bat i can feel how lightweight the light fixture is which is a huge plus. it has a sturdy build, and a fairly nice design. The way the legs work are great, fully adjustable to the length of your tank if its slightly smaller than 48 inches or the smaller model of this fixture. the second i turned them on, i noticed how much more brighter these lights are in comparison to my 30 watts i had before. now i have 108 watts in total and the difference is incredible. before, with the lack of power my plants were dying, but now with these lights in just a few days i have noticed a strong growth reaction from my plants. the roseate bulb helps out a lot as well as the T5 light at 6000k. if down the road you want to go from dual to quad or sextuplet light fixture, you can buy the same model and attach them together. great feature. the model up from this is mainly for saltwater, so overall, for the price you pay for this product. your getting every cent worth of quality with this product.

                I use this on my 30 Gal. FW community/planted set-up . My plants are lush and beautiful and it really brings out the colors of my fish . The individual , angled reflectors maximizes the light output toward the aquarium with minimum loss to the sides . The mounts and the acrylic splash guard are a bonus for those who do not wish to use a cover .

                  I have a Oceanic 58 gallon "tub" tank (36"x21"x18"), Fluval 305. I would say its moderately to heavy planted. This light is a complete difference from the standard Strip light. The plants are looking great. This light sits 2-3" above the tank, so you will have to deal with the light that escapes from the sides. But i would recommend this light for anyone looking to setup a planted tank.

                    I have this unit running over a 58 Gallon Oceanic tank. I love that the reflectors are separately molded for each of the bulbs, even though it is one piece. The construction is excellent, and the light output is fantastic! I would definitely buy this again.

                    The light does not get hot at all, and needs no fan. I hate the noise of spinning fans!

                          What is the length from the center brace to the opposite side panel? Most 125 gallons are 72" so a 36" would work best.

                        Would this be good enough to give a high light on my 36 gallon tank?

                          For "high light" you may require two of this fixture, or the 4 bulb unit.

                          It will rest on the center brace however they wont line up perfectly. If you want to get a total of 3 watts per gallon then you will need 8 units unfortunately.
