Sophisticated 24 Hour Lighting System is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 48" 24 hour system. I love this system. If programmed correctly it can simulate daytime with the metal halide then can overlap into twilight or sunrise with t5's and overlap to Luna led simulating moon light. The perfect realism of the natural reef environment. It has worked consistently well for over 7 straight years. I recently had the led Luna LEDs go out. After posting on the message board I was notified that they were sending me replacements free. Considering this product has been discontinued I think the company stands by their products and I thank Barbara from the customer suc dept and the other employees that went out of their way to help me. If you can find a used one somewhere I recommend you get it.
