The ZooMed Aquasun T5 Ho Light fixture has been given a bad reputation in my opinion.

I currently have 3 of them and they are a great light for a low-med light plants.

I love the fact that it is hinged and can be moved out of my way without having to be taken down from the aquarium. I also have it hung on two tanks the hanging kit came with it!

Overall I only wish it had better reflectors, however it does the job and for the money you really cannot complain!

I am enjoying mine as well for my low-med light tank. Just fine for the price. My first one flickered on and off at night sometimes so I had it replaced. The 36" are something like $40 right now at Petco too. Funny thing is that they stopped selling them at Petco online from what I can tell. Its only the LED model now. Maybe they are phasing out the T5 fixtures all the way in their stores now. Zoomed was about all they had last time I checked at my local store.

I don't, but thanks! Hah.

They are a cheap buy but I am slowly going the route of LED myself.
I'm sure that there are quite a few other websites that will have them.. though maybe not at petco sales prices.

I just got a Finnex Ray II and Planted + and think they are both great so far.
I wanted to get a BML, but decided to wait for their newer builds to come out first.
