Wolf19 I received my first product damaged, and Jim was also kind enough to send me a second one. I'm hopeful that this one will not be damaged via shipping. Great service! Would reccomend purchasing from them.

ThatGuyWithTheFish Hm, my 1 bulb T5HO might not actually be enough light, even though it's great for the BBA.

how long is your tank?

Just excel for me, no major algae problems.
