I'm thinking about this fixture in the 36" 150 watt version. Does anyone have any input; good or bad?

Thanks in advance.

This is for a 38 gal reef. Right now I have 192 watts of 10K PC and 42 watts of actinic T5. I have softies right now but I'm looking to move into LPS and maybe some SPS in the future.

They are not the best and like most Current fixtures overpriced. That fixture has an internal ballast which adds to the weight and heat. The bulbs are generic as well.

Here is a better option and cheaper price as DFS is always high. AquaMedic is a much higher quality fixture and you have a bulb choice.
