Yes I have been running AQ Lights for over a year and had good success with them growing coral. See my original post http://reefcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2562318

Unfortunately a few months ago one of the light strips for some reason had an issue and only the white leds stayed on constantly. They would not turn off. Presently working with AQ to figure out the problem.

Luckily the fixture is designed so that I could still run it with the one light strip removed. Although the light balance and coverage is not the same.

Overall pretty solid design and good control through the Touch.

I have had mine for about Two Years and it has worked flawlessly.
I really don't even need to go past 45% with most of the different colors to get great results. The thing that I love is that it the AQT Lights do not rely on a Fans for cooling.
They have a large aluminum heatsinks that to keep them cool.

Fans over salt water have always been a huge disappointment for me. I have even bought coated industrial chemical fans designed for corrosive chemical ventilation and while they last a lot longer than regular fans, the salty air still destroys them after 18 months of use.
