      Hey

      I'm looking at buying one of the new led lights you guys offer. The 48 inch specificly, can you post a pic of the light on a four foot tank? Maybe a comparison shot between your T5HO and the LEDHO?

      Well I went ahead and bought one,

      I can say i'm not impressed with the light it gives off. I'd almost need 2 fixtures to cover and 18 inch deep tank. 0 spread on the light beam. Basically all little spotlights.

      using the 4 footer on a 5 foot tank leaves VERY noticable dark spots lots of them.

      I have This on a 120 xh marineland tank. There is about 2/3 of the tank lit up the rest is dark.

      Bottom Line,

      Try Something Else. Will post pics soon.

      My 4 foot single bulb fluorescent fixture provides better lighting. Yeah I said that.

      Avoid the lights if possible. Not worth the money

      Forgot to add, the extendable legs are so flimsy the light sits on the glass of my tank if i have the legs extended because they bend so bad.

      I guess you were hoping for a comment from the zoo med folks?
      i bet if you had the lig hanging above your tank instead of right on top of it
      you would have a brighter, more spread out look like you are wanting

      I will try hanging the light but i only have 6 -8 inches above the tank till the ceiliing.

      I originally had posted in hopes zoomed would respond about the lights but i just bought one when i never got a response. I wasn't overly happy with the light so i figured I'd share that displeasure.

      Cheers

      Wow, that's extremely dark, i'm glad I found this post before buying new lights. It looks like it would be good for a decorative style theme tank but that's about it.
      Thanks for posting your pictures, they're very helpful! Also, sorry about the lighting, massive bummer.
