Pros: Plenty of light, inexpensive, great coverage
Cons: Shorter bulb life

When I first got my start this was the light fixture I used over my 75g. I used it along with the 40w fixture that came with the tank. With this lighting combination I was able to grow Rotala macrandra and Pogostemon stellatus very nicely, even though I only had 1.8wpg.

This light also has plenty of intensity. When put at the front of my tank it caused, and still causes, Hemianthus micranthemoides to grow horizontally versus vertically.

T-8 replacement lights for this strip can be found at Home Depot very cheaply. I paid $7 for two 6500K lamps with a CRI of 90. Can\'t beat that price for replacement lamps!

I still use this light and actually prefer it over the CF light I am using.
