The single linear coralife strips do not have fans. The double linear strips have fans. So the 48" strip that includes fans is the 260W not 130W.
Here is there website.

I do have a single strip Coralife fixture. It has no fan, and has not cause me any grief, yet! I also have a double bulb Coralife fixture. It also has no fans. It hasn't given me a problem yet either.

What was the number you called for warranty? I too have a coralife fixture like you, and recently it has had a few problems turning on by itself. I have the light on a timer, and sometimes when I wake up, the light isnt on. I have to, hit the hood a few times before it will turn on. Maybe someting is loose in there, but since its still under warranty, I rather get a replacement.

|Verminaard||As a matter of fact, I forgot mine did crack For the money-you cant go wrong with the 4x65 for $205. I wish I had gotten that fixture way back.......|

|hubbahubbahehe||i have heard of jbj hoods cracking from the heat of the lights.... i can't really see coralife's doing that... so you're next hood would be a coralife again? maybe i just got bad luck and i 'll give them another chance for the 4x65 w hood that i need to get in the future.|

|Verminaard||Both are 48" and fit perfectly over my AGA 72g. The JBJ is a venice model that I got on closeout, it was more expensive then the coralifes and I had to replace the bulbs (50/50 actinic) which was a bit pricey. The JBJ was a bit short and never fit well; I had to "angle" it with one end resting on the glass top and one end resting on the plastic top of the tank. The other thing I didnt like was that the power cord on the JBJ was only about 3" long and it made connections a bit tight. I replaced this unit with the coralife after it began to have a ballast problem (I think) that caused it to lose power from time to time. Overall I feel that the Coralifes have a more rigid construction and reflectors are every bit as good as the JBJs--and much cheaper.|
