Just bumping this thread because I had the same thing happen to my Finnex this week. It's only about 1/2 the brightness it was originally.

Did you check the voltage from the power supply and compare it to its rating?

The power supply on my planted + was running at 132 degrees F at the plastic cover so I took the cover off of it and put some computer fans over it. It runs at a cooler 82 degrees now on the metal heat sink. If the Fugeray is similar than I cant imagine it would last more than 6 months at those running temperatures.

5 gallon planted (sons) low tech
Plant heavily, fertilize well, stock lightly, change water weekly, and most importantly do not use too much light.
