    So an update to the Dsuny Leds. A few months back the display on the controller went dim and the unit was unable to keep time so my lights were turning on and off at random times. I contacted the manufacturer in China and they sent me a replacement free of charge, the only thing was that I had to change it out myself which for me was no big deal since Im and electrical engineer. Fast forward to This past Tuesday, sept. 20th 2016, I came home to my entire system being shut down, pumps, heaters and lights. I have my whole system tied into GFCI outlets so I had to reset all of the plugs and plug in one thing at a time. Long story short it was the Light controller causing the problem, I can imagine that if not for the GFCI outlets who knows what could've happened, circuit breaker trip or worse a fire. So now I'm down to my 48 inch T5 fixture for now until I get replacement that fits my tank. Its a 72 in long so the 48 is not enough. I think i'm just going to stick with t5's. I had no real growth with the LED's anyways, although in all fairness to LEDS these were not the greatest ones to get.

    revhtree,
    I am new to this forum. I see you started this string about 2 years ago. Do you have the complete list somewhere? Did I miss a posting? I am interested in making the switch from MH to LED on my 180g.

    Another thought....
    What about mixing LED fixtures? I have a 180g tank with 3 distinct sections, left to right, separated by cross beams at the suface. In my research so far, when there are LED fixtures similar to the Hydras or Mytras, I will need 3 fixtures. What if I buy 2 Hydras for the ends and a Mytras for the middle fixture? My cost goes from ~$2200 to ~$1800. The only issue I see is the ability to control them. I would require 2 separate apps to control them but that doesn't seem like a big deal. That's a good cost savings.

    Thoughts?
