"Would not buy this light again"
Support is the worse I have ever ran into. You are very very limited to what bulbs you can use and it barely lights my 55. Odyssea is a much better choice for low budget.

"Piece of #%$&!"
Had the 30" version on my 20gallon long. The HE stands for high efficiency. It's the same as any other standard flourescent fixture. I had it for an couple of days and the daylight tube stopped working. The blue leds don't turn off. The legs on the fixture suck and are not adjusted easily. Don't buy this absolute garbage!

At first use, this light seems like a quality item with a decent price. The one original complaint I had was that you could turn off the individual bulbs, but not the LED night lights. It seemed to work well and put off night light. But within a few months, I had to replace one of the bulbs. The plastic "protective" cover was so warped, I literally had to break it to get it out of the fixture. Then another bulb shortly after, and another once more. Another seemed to burn out recently, and when trying to replace it, nothing. The only thing that works now is the LED's. I would definately not recommend buying this fixture.

Don't buy this fixture. If you do, at least buy it from a place you can return it when it quits working.
After eight hours of use, six of the eight LEDs quick working. Most LEDs are rated somewhere between 20 and 50 thousand hours. These made it eight lol. After two days the actinic bulb only comes on after whacking the top of the fixture.
I took it apart to tried and fix it (electronics tech) after I found out I had to pay the return shipping. It utilizes the cheapest of cheap components. It is constructed in a way that makes it impossible to repair without destroying the the item.
Don't buy it.
