I have heard many times that LEDs do not tend to emit in the same spectrum as the T5s and other plant-optimized bulbs. It seems like many of the mainstream LEDs available are not good for fresheater...

It could also be a bacterial infection, particularly if the seller said his were affected too. You could try to treat with Maracyn 2 or Paraguard.

I'm on my 4th one of these in 3 weeks from Amazon. All bulbs turn black in 1-2 days then die. I have several other coralife fixtures in the 24 in length that are great. This one is just plain aweful.

I'll keep that in mind about the aquatic life, thanks!

I'm sorry, I guess I don't understand why the Archea and Aquatic life should be ruled out and not included in the list above. Is there a specific reason?
