I have a 90 gal, for lighting I have 4x65 watt 4 pin compact flourescent. Unfortunately, the coralife light, at least 2 of them have malfunctioned. Is there a consensus on an led set up for planted aquaria? Just wondering if it is time to go led. Thanks

Still better off with T5 or Power Compacts, IMHO. The best LEDs are similar in efficiency, but far more expensive.

Coralife fixtures are notorious, at least amongst my local club, for failing. The ballasts were cheap, the ventillation horrible, fans prone to failure... everyone's had much better results with AH Supply kits or equivalent semi-open design with good air ventilation.
