Product Questions

I'm building a new tank and I'm going to have it heavily sps with some lps corals. Will the 4 foot 6 bulb be able to produce the light to make the colors of the corals the best they can be?
Question by: Andrew on Jan 4, 2017 3:28:00 AM
Great question! A 6 bulb fixture is more than capable of sufficiently growing SPS and LPS. Many of us use 4-6 bulb fixtures on our own tanks with heavily stocked SPS. :-)

Answer by: Randy (Admin) on Jan 10, 2017 4:38:00 PM
what are the dimensions of the fixture and does it get hot to the touch like the coralife version almost like it could burn you?
Question by: Joshua Hansen on Mar 3, 2016 6:21:00 PM
Great question!
The fixture will be 48" long and range in width from 10" to 24" . These will get warm and almost hot however should not get hot enough to burn. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Mar 3, 2016 6:46:00 PM
Do all fixtures come with a ballast? Or is it sold separate?
Question by: Dude on Mar 19, 2016 10:52:00 PM
Great question!
These will come with the ballast and cables included in the unit's housing. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Mar 21, 2016 5:35:00 PM
What is the major difference besides the price between these fixtures and the ATI. Power difference or just build quality?
Thanks
Question by: Tony on Dec 18, 2016 11:58:00 AM
Great question! Although both can support the same respective T5 bulbs and wattage(s), the biggest difference lies in the manufacturing and quality of products used. The housing, ballasts and reflectors of the ATI will be of better quality than this fixture. :-)
Answer by: Randy (Admin) on Dec 22, 2016 6:33:00 PM
I have a 75g 48x18x20 tank. Would you suggest the 4 or 6 bulb fixture? "Will be using ati bulbs".
Question by: Brett on Jan 20, 2016 2:59:00 AM
Great question!
With a standard 75 gallon you can get by with the 4 bulb on a mixed reef. If you are looking for some good growth with higher demand corals you may consider the 6 bulb fixture. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Jan 27, 2016 6:41:00 PM

Question by: Ian Mackey on Nov 11, 2016 11:57:00 AM

Question by: Robert Ratcliffe on Apr 6, 2016 6:17:00 PM
Great question!
These fixtures will not include a splash guard. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Apr 8, 2016 3:32:00 PM

Lighting for reef tanks can be one of the hardest choices when it comes to fixtures to buy. Their are so many options these days it is hard to know which is going to be best for your tank. Over the years T5 fixtures have been a staple in the hobby and a great recipe for success. T5 lighting will give the most even spread of any lights due to the length of the fluorescent tube and reflectors. The Sunlight Supply Sun Blaze fixtures are a great value for the price and can be daisy chained for multiple fixtures to be connected together through the power cords.

 

48" Sun Blaze T5HO fixtures are available in the following sizes:

54w x 2 lamp

54w x 4 lamp

54w x 6 lamp

  • This is an update of my review from last year By William on 3/28/2017

    Almost a year ago, I purchased this light 48"x6 bulb to start a new reef tank because I out grew my older systems. I am still extremely satisfied with this particular light. As I said in my first review, it's not a sleek, thin design by any means, but my light enclosure is not visible so it does not matter. The light ballasts are quiet and it does everything I want it to do. I have a very diverse mixed reef, with SPS, lots of LPS, and a few soft corals. I have experienced good growth on my SPS corals and very solid growth on my LPS corals. Bottom line, it's a great light to start with on a budget and still have good results without breaking the bank.
  • Great Light for the price By Rick on 10/29/2016

    I just add the light to my reef setup just as it comes out of the box except I add the legs from an old Odyssea fixture so I did not hang it from the ceiling either. at the moment I have one tang, to tomato clowns, 5 cardinals and Harry, a Pink Urchin. oh also 10 Cerith Snails and they all look and act great under this light. I will add more in a year or so to bring this review up to date with the later status but for now, 5 star!
  • Quality Light for the Price By William on 4/17/2016

    This is a good quality light for the price, it is not very sleek or awesome looking, it's just what it says; a light. I mounted my sun blaze inside a hood so I'm not worried about the look. But it's a great fixture and does everything I wanted it to. I did purchase the ATI lights to go in it, and I'm very satisfied.
