Does anyone have the 48 inch Coralife Lunar Aqualight HO T5 Aquarium Light Fixture? If so how many LED moonlights does it have?
I have been searching online with the sponsors and most show a picture with 2 LED's. I contacted Coralife and was told it was only made with 4 LED's but then talked to two different customer service reps from one of the sponsors who insist it only has 2 LED's no matter what the size :roll: :-?
I don't want to go through the pain of ordering one and trying to return it if it shows up with only 2 LED's!!
Anybody know anything about this?

GTZ: Totally.

Go with what the box says. They're not about to ship a product with a misprint like that.

(edited)

Anywhere I look, I only see 4 for the 48" model, all the rest have 2.

:cool:

Alpha7. I am afraid that last bit isn't true.

The 48" HO T5 Lunar Aqualight has 4 LED's and always has. The smaller models (24,30, and 36") have two LED's.

Firemedic. Would you be able to PM me the names of the sponsor who told you it only had two. Someone should let them know they are incorrect.

I should know. I work for Central Aquatics and the Lunars were one of my development projects.

Fair enough, thanks for the correction. May I suggest a mass emailing to web based suppliers out there to inform them of this because the majority of them have an image of a 2-LED version, most likely one of the 36" or smaller models. They probably didn't bother reading the box to note that the 48" is the only one with 4, nor do they notice the difference in the T5 bulb configuration.

Example from the exact same site that had a proper photo of the 4-LED model:
http://www.hellolights.com/48inch-coral ... ure-3.aspx
When compared to the proper image, this one is clearly not 48".

There is definitely some confusion amongst retailers about the difference between the 48" model and the others. Perhaps it's lazy webmasters who can't be bothered to upload a proper photo?

:cool:

Funny GTZ. Sorry can't help you there.

Alpha7. We are taking care of it. The images websites use are pulled from the Coralife web site and often there are only one or two they take. In this case the only image that showed the LED's was a 24" model.

Sometimes the specifications are not documented properly by the retailer and the sales reps don't know any better. This seems to be the case here.
