Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Lighting System!!! I bought this system over 2 years ago and the support, even though discontinued is still AWESOME!! You really need to re-engineer this system and put it back on the "for sale" list.

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.

I have the 48" light, 32982. During my last move the legs broke and I have lost the manual/instructions. Any help would be appreciated

Asked by: Chris75
No worries! I can email you the instructions, etc. Please respond to the email with your name, address, and phone number, and we can send you a set of legs too. Hmmm....that sounded kind of odd, didn't it? :-) BREX

We have the 23" model and the box says good for 5 years. The problem being the light is now flashing like a strobe light. The store can not help us and to replace it is another $169.00, is there any other solution. Thanks Veronica

Asked by: Vern
The one pictured is a discontinued model that costs closer to $1,000. It has been discontinued for at least 7 years. If you have the Reef LED, that one has been discontinued for about one year, but the original cost would have been around $200+. Strobing lights are usually due to moisture up inside the light area, and cannot be corrected. If you have had the unit for less than a year, it would be under warranty, and we would recommend you call us at 1-800-322-1266. BREX

Hello! I have the 48" and I too need the legs and my led's are out as well. Is there anyway you could help me with this? Also, I can't find my manual and would like to know what model/style halide bulb would I need for replacement? Thank you very much!

Asked by: MarkS
Bulbs are available through, lighting stores, etc. The legs we can send you, if they are still in stock. I will email you for your info, and to send the instructions to you. The bulbs are listed in the instruction manual. They require 150 W M81 lamps. BREX
