Default $50 NIB AquaSun t5 HO dual 24" (plus an introduction and a story)

Hey guys, been lurking around here for a long time learning the tricks of the trade and using every avoidance strategy possible to not hang out in SNS... until now, and this time hopefully it's to give back a little.

The other day I got a little over excited and purchased this fixture to start a new tank and got home to a cold "you're gonna what?!"

Needless to say, the other half is correct and these need to go... and I realized I'd rather give everybody here a shot at them since I've been helped here so much over the year (even if you didn't know it).

They were a discount item at Petco so there's no manual, but it has the acrylic cover, tank mounts and box. It also has mounting points for hanging but the hardware was gone with the manual before I got it. I called AquaSun and they said if I needed it they'd mail it to me for free, which I also thought was pretty cool of them.

The reason I like this fixture is the cost, the built-in reflector is nice and there are independent switches for each bulb.

The only downside I can see is that the cord is a little short if you have a long run to your power source.

There's reviews all over the internet, most of the negative reviews seemed to be the typical person ignorant of the hobby blaming the equipment.

I'd rather be showing them off in a journal, but my time will come soon enough.

Thanks for looking!
