I have been using the Cayman Sun 250 Watt HQI Pendant System for over a year now and have been very happy with its performance. My corals are growing like crazy, especially the SPS. The reflector is the reason. Its designed to be high output. I have used a few other reflectors on the market but find Cayman Sun gives me the best results for coral growth. The LED that comes with it is ok - nothing great. The true performance though is the reflector and the lamp. After using LEDs, I find metal halide lighting to be a better choice in reef lighting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sharkvader great product came with everything
the reason for the four stars is that my shipment came with light one day and next day came the ballast and had to take apart and tighten up the hanging posts. and tighten up the screws other than that great deal because everything was together no hunting for the parts to go with it .

Rated 4 out of 5 by tkeller Well built But..
I purchased this fixture to replace a warn out mh/cf combo fixture, I wanted something i could hang from the ceiling which would allow easier access to the tank. It has good build quality, there are however 2 issues.
1. the cord for the MH ballast is so thick it turns the light fixture to the left, i had to actually mount the wire to the side of my tank to prevent the twisting.
2. The led lights are on one side only they are pretty much a waste unless you turn the fixture to position it long ways front to back on the tank, then you do not get proper light coverage from the MH, as it is the led only light one small section of my tank, its it however only attached with sticky tape so it can be relocated to the back of the fixture solving this problem.
Overall 4 stars due to the modifications I had to make, but this thing is built to last and the light output is great, no flicker, and it seems to fire my MH bulb to full much quicker then my last fixtiure

Rated 2 out of 5 by Lisagkg Okay light fixture
I am not sure I would recommend this light. It is hard to get the light bulbs in. This is our second bulb and one side goes in other not and you really have to push hard. I cannot do it myself and have to wait for my he-man to come home and do it for me. It does twist goofy and we do not use the night lights. They only light up one side of your tank and makes it look like the lights for the other side burnt out. Get ready for 15 minutes or so to try to get the bulb in. You need to take it all down to put a bulb in.
I slide the glass out to put bulb in and the silver reflector wants to fall out too.miss my old light
