View Full Version : Lighting: Please Help Me Decide

05/11/2010, 02:55 PM
Im looking to purchase a light for my 29 gallon lps tank and i have narrowed it down to 3. all 3 of these lights have four 24w bulbs. The only downfall that i have noticed out of the three is that the wavepoint has no timers built in and all four bulbs are run off one cord. The AcuaticLife seems to have great reviews on marinedepot, so im leaning towards purchasing it. any input is appreciated!

1) Current USA Sundial 30"
2) AquaticLife 24"/30"
3) WavePoint 24"

If all four bulbs are run off one cord, with no timers built in, then that would eliminate that hood for me!

I would definately go for the hood that will give you the most options when it comes to timers and power cords. Bulbs will be changed in the future, fixtures stay the same ..for a while.

I saw the aquatic life at a recent Expo here in So. Cali and the look pretty slick. I like the built in timer.

If all 4 bulbs run off of one cord - eliminate that choice altogether. That is weak.

I would go with either the Current Sundial or the Aquatic life unit.
