on my 140 gl I have 2 36" compacts in the front and I recently purchased an Odyssea 36" for the back. My question is the new hood has 1actinic blue ,1 12000 day light and 3 blue led's on this 1. I have never had an option so my question is which lights should I use? how often? When should I use them? Should I have them on together? Thanks. other than 1 anenome its a fish only tank.

OK now I have a new question how do I turn the fans on on this light? I damn near burnt my forearm turning the lights off.

The Odyssea lights are a very inexpensive lighting option, but they almost always arrive with fans that do not work. I run the Odyssea on my 58 reef, and my 38 reef before that. The lighting has worked very well, but you will be tinkering with the fans forever.

I have had this discussion with no less than 20 other people in the last year. It is just a fact about these low budget lighting fixtures.
