Don't the Coralife strips have catching fire problems ? I have one but have never used it because of reading about them catching fire . Maybe they got the newer ones fixed ? Don't know , just wondering .

My wife says if I get one more aquarium she is going to leave me . I sure am going to miss her fried chicken .

I've never had an issue with it catching fire. I bought the power strip in 2010 and it has been fine.
