    Aggggghhhh my old BML when kaput

    My beloved 60” BML light just went poof…water got in it… anyone know of a repair shop? Is that even an option?

    Worst case scenario, what’s a solid fixture at this length?

    I freaking loved that light…

    Cool deal…I’ve heard nothing but good things…was looking at kessil and asta 120.. but far more folks here have raved about chihiros… thanks Johnathan!!!

    Would one on a hanging kit be suitable for a 60” long tank?

    No way for one. I have 2 for my 120p. And just bought two more from amazon. So two is the minimum for 60" tank

    The flexibility is by far the best for $250 shipped with 1 year warranty

    They look nice…last question before pulling the trigger… how is mounting? I have an old school tank with a plastic rim around it… will this impede mounting the units?…I know most now have rimless (which is my next big purchase, but not for awhile )…
