Nova Extreme Pro T-5 Fixtures 20"; 108 watt
I have had the light (48in on a 55 gallon reef) for 2 months now and i have no complaints. It was exactly as advertized and other websites had the same light fixture and it cost much less on here. My corals and fish love the extra light. This product is very durable and well made. The mounting legs are sturdy unlike some other fixtures I have seen. The bulbs are on two switches so it is easy to create the sunrise and sunset effect if you want to. Great light if you are wanting to upgrade or just starting out. Very simple to use and you will love it!!

Excellent Lighting System
I bought this light because I wanted to start keeping hard and soft corals in my 45 gallon tank. A week after i bought it my coralline algae boomed. The intensity of the fixture is great the 6 t5 bulbs are powerful. I know this light does not come with a timer but that is better because if a timer breaks on a light you have to wait for a new one and then what about those corals. A timer from home depot cost $10 you will need two. moonlights doesn't come with any only downfall but now u can pick out your own led strip that will give you that shimmer effect I recommend that you get a led strip that has whites and deep blue and turn that on during the day to get shimmer for day time, and then blue at night for the shimmer effect. overall well made sturdy, fans work great, does not mess with the temp of tank all bulbs worked shipping was fast about a week great price best value out there.

Best Lighting Option for Price
I have this light over a new 125. Love the fact that I can cut on just actinics and then all for daytime lighting. Fixture is very easy to setup and the fixture is very efficient, with fans that are quiet. I could not be more pleased.

Excellent lighting system
Excellent lighting system with the 6 T-5 bulbs. Easy to install and amazingly bright. So much better than the compact lighting I had used for years. Wished it had lunar lights, but I installed them separately. Even with the fans, it was making the glass cover too warm. Experts told me to remove cover, not only to help the heat but also release the gasses building up under the glass cover. Amazing, the lights are super bright without the glass. A-1 in customer service. Much to my surprise the system came with 12,000w rather than the 10,000w advertised.
