    we have sold stax of them for marine and No complaints - they are also a awesome clean colour .

    We like them so much we've changed all our fresh water and our smaller stores fresh water tanks to Zet lights.
    The fresh water also grow plants quite nicely.

    I've just installed mine so I haven't got a long track record with them yet but they come highly recommended by the water boy which is why I bought it.
