Fluval Spec 2G LED Failure

I have had my Fluval Spec 2G as a low maintenance tank at work since April. It was seeded from my Edge, and the low level light plants are doing well despite the marginal LED light. The lights are running on a timer. it just houses a betta.

2-3 month ago, some of the LEDs started to flicker, then go out. The power supply and connectors are fin. By now, about 1/3 or so of the light have failed. When I checked on Amazon, where I had bought the tank, my case was not unique. There were a number of entries showing the same complaint.

I left a replacement request with Fluval on their site. They took more than a week to respond. I had to attach a receipt and my address, and it looks like they might replace it. Buying a replacement is almost as expensive as a new tank!

I wonder, if there are others with the same issue?

Happened to me, called Fluval (their site sucks, call them and be stern) and they got me a new one in a week.
