Comments: I've owned the 36" 6x39w fixture for over 18 months after "upgrading" from a Sunlight Supply 4x39w. I was very excited about the included features on such an affordable fixture. When the light arrived, I immediately noticed that the materials and craftsmanship was far inferior to the Sunlight Supply. Also, the three heavy cords exit from one of the ends of the fixture (as opposed to the rear). Although I knew this from the pictures, it is much more unattractive and difficult than I anticipated. However, I was still happy with the 6 bulbs, moonlights, active cooling, glass light shield, tilt feature and price. The bulbs are placed extremely close together (narrower area than my previous 4-bulb fixture), which eliminates a lot of the lighting power of T5s. The reflectors appear to be good material, but poor design. Stocked it with new ATI bulbs and really couldn't complain about the growth or color of my SPS dominated tank. Even so, I felt the product description was much better than what I received. Because returning the product would've cost about 1/4 of the purchase cost at the time and it was providing adequate light for my system, I kept it. After about 6 months, half of the moonlights stopped working. After another 6 months, the cooling system entirely stopped working. The fans never run anymore, regardless of conditions. So now all I have is a featureless, barebones 6-light fixture for which I paid too much. I wish I followed my instinct to return this after my initial quality assessment. With so much good competition at any price point in aquarium lighting, I recommend not even considering this product. I will not buy another Aqua Medic product of any sort in the future. The features-to-price-ratio appeared too good to be true and in my experience, it was.

Comments: I was looking for an active-cooled 8-tube 36" T5 fixture w/ moonlights at a reasonable price, and this fulfilled all my requirements... Well-built and attractive, the fixture includes hanging cables and hinged tank brackets for your choice of mounting... The splash shield is glass, so scratches should not be a problem. The included fans are very quiet and the moonlights look really cool...the reflector is formed from a single piece of aluminum and the lamp spacing is a bit cramped, but overall a very nice product!
