I originally wanted to purchase the Ecotech Radion led fixture for a few reasons. Most of you know them already, things like saving money with low power usage and my favorite, low heat. Well after thinking it over and doing hours of research i then thought i would want to purchase the dimmable ATI six bulb T5 set up. I was pretty set on this decision but i thought i would give MH one last look just to be sure. Well i was about to purchase the Hamilton Tech 150 watt MH for a decent price, but then i had to check out my lfs one more time. I came across the Current USA 150 watt MH with PC actenics. I know its not the the best brand or the most current fixture, but it was way cheaper than the Hamilton Tech MH and it came with blue actenics as well as LED moon lighting. The only beef i have with this unit is that it is a 14" fixture meaning it overhangs the tank about 2" left and right. Fortunately the light splash isn't too unbearable and my wife is happy that i didn't spend $800 on a light.
For now i am pleased with the decision and in the future i may look closer at LED lighting. Next step is to continue to watch my tank cycle and fix up the chiller.
