i really wanted a planted aquarium after seeing numerous picturesque photos of breath taking aquascapes. i wanted to try it for my self. after researching i found out that high lighting is basically a necessity. this controller was just what i needed to up my light levels. best price on the market for money saving t5 light bulbs. my plant growth has been amazing. very easy to put in and use. they are of a very high quality also.

Great item. Doubled my lightings in an instant. Unfortunately managed to damage light tube pins when first as they appeared very fragile. Now use this controller in my marine tank with exelent stable results (Posted on 28/12/2013)
Product works well but very fiddly Review by Nick

I brought this product to add more light to my Trigon 190 marine tank. I added the lights under the lid flaps, 1 x 28w and 1 x 24 w at the back. When used ic combination with the original trigon ballast it make the tank much more brighter. The one major problem is when tightning the plastic seal to cover the tube, it's quite hard and can sometimes risk the pins of the tube being damaged, so be careful. (Posted on 28/08/2013)

I bought this as an addition to the already existing lights in my tank. they are fantastic and instalment was so simple. the only negative is that the two different bulbs cant be controlled seperately. (Posted on 11/07/2013)

Purchased for my 220litre planted aquarium and used in conjunction with 2 x T5 plant pro tubes. Provides the start up power required to use higher watt T5 lights. It's well built and worth every penny, I have been running this system for several months now and no problems. Would highly recommend. Thanks WH aquatics! (Posted on 24/01/2013)

I bought this to replace the T8 lights on my Fluval Roma 125 as I wanted to start keeping corals and my lighting gave up for unknown reasons, I have to say it was so simple to convert using this unit, I don’t know why I put if off for so long, very good quality (Posted on 24/08/2012)

I bought one of these before I settled for the D&D Razor 39w unit, these are great little units and the price is amazing however you must remember that what you see is what you get. After you add up the cost of bulbs reflectors and the cost to mount you could have bought an all in one sealed unit. It is a great unit mind and when you have a custom built tank it makes life alot easier as you can just screw this into the wood directly! Overall great price from WA and always great service!! These are still double the price in many shops!!!! (Posted on 13/03/2012)
Good aquarium lighting Review by AquaMan

I was deciding whether to buy T5 or T8. After speaking with a helpful rep from warehouse aquatics T5 seemed the better choice. I'm glad I followed the recommendation. The controller does the job and the tubes give a nice colour. T5 tubes are smaller and more compact. A critique I have, similar to some other reviews, is that it would be good to have two switches to power the tubes independantly. But then again, thats the design. Also, when tightning the plastic seal to cover the tube, it's quite hard and can sometimes risk the pins of the tube being damaged. I guess this is more down to practice, but I recommend you hold both the tube and socket firmly when tightening the seals. (Posted on 21/02/2012)
a solid piece of kit. but it could be better... Review by Rav

this is the first such controller i've purchased, so i dont have anything beyond tank-ready balasts to comprare it to. what i will say though is that if each of the individual lamp holdings came with its own on/off switch, this product's utlility would be doubled in an instant. another significant improvment - assuming its technically possible - would be if the wattage range could be increased to range from 24-54w. otherwise, a solid and sturdy piece of kit.

[WA STAFF NOTE: Unfortunately it is not possible to control tubes individually on any shared controller that shares a single ballast. Also sadly all T5 ballast units are rated for a specific wattage. This is very much a limitation of how the technology works, not a specific choice any manufacturer makes] (Posted on 03/01/2012)
