    I keep an extra that is a year old...just to hold me over until I get a brand new one should the one in the canopy fail.
    The only thing two reef keepers will agree on, is what the third reef keeper is doing wrong!

    Ditto what mouse said. I used the replacement boxes and labeled them "1 Year Old Ushio" etc.

    I had two that I bought at the same time. One lasted a month. I'm trying to get it replaced, but I don't have an extra if the current one goes. I better get on that.
