Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long lasting in my experience Mine lasted about 10 years of consistent use. It lights the tank beautifully and my plants do very well under it. I just replaced it with a new one when the old one finally croaked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really like the way it makes the tank look. Not quite as harsh. We went for several days without a lamp for the tank and it looks so sad. After checking several local places, I remembered how easy it was to order from Marineland. The lamp arrived sooner than expected and my fish are definitely happy.

How do I replace light bulb in Elipse 12???

Asked by: confused99
You need to remove the white plastic "screw" by twisting it half a turn and pulling it out. It does not require a screwdriver. Once it is out, you pull off the clear lens cover to access the bulb. The bulb just pulls out. BREX

I purchased 2 replacement bulbs from another site and they both popped immediately when plugged in. The bulbs are 13 watts and not the 50/50 White/Actinic light. Is the bulb causing the problem or does my hood have a short?

Asked by: RobRen24
It does not have to be a 50/50, but it does have to be a compact bulb of no more than 50 watts. Your hood may be the issue, and unfortunately, that is not available any more. If it was not a compact style bulb though, that may be the issue. BREX

Im running a 12 gallon eclipse with soft coral, is this enough light for good coral growth?

What do you recommend for good coral growth, when it comes to lighting in my 12 gallon eclipse?
Asked by: CoachNemo99
You might want to supplement it with the Accent LED in blue or the Hidden LED. However, they will need to be mounted on the straight side, which may be difficult in the Eclipse. BREX

Help! I can't get the light out!

I have the original light bulb in the Eclipse PFES 12 hood and it burnt out. I can't get it out. While trying to remove it, the bulb actually detached and the white, plastic base that clicks in is stuck in the socket. Is there a trick to getting it out? I see the tiny metal tab that seems to held it clicked in, but I can't budge it at all. It's very rigid, doesn't seem to bend at all.

Thanks Brex, but not quite... The actual bulb happened to come out and the base of the lightbulb is stuck in the park where you, well, stick it in... but there is a little metal tab on the base that clicks it into the socket and I can't get it out because of that. I have tried a needle nose, a tiny screwdriver, an ice pick like tool... it doesn't seem to bend or push in at all so I'm wondering if there is some other way that I don't know about to get it out. I took it into Petsmart and they couldn't get it out either. I'll try the local aquarium store, but I'm stumped. I was hoping the manufacturers would be able to help with this. Thanks!

My tank has a PA0420 light installed, What is the difference? Will this work?

My tank has a PA0420 light installed. I want to keep another light on hand. What is the difference with the PA0420 and PA11429? Will they work interchangeably? I have a salt water tank with some coral.
Asked by: LiRoper
They will both fit in the system. However, the PA0420 is just a 13w compact. The PA11429 is a 50/50 compact and is the one you need for your corals. The other one will not work for corals. BREX

Asked by: TomBenhard
No, the link you provided was for the bulb. You need the hood and lamp base assembly. Here is the link: Brex
