    [FONT=&quot]Model:[/FONT]
    IceCap 24", 36", and 48" SLR T5 reflectors

    [FONT=&quot]Link to product description[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]Price range:[/FONT]
    $149.99 USD

    [FONT=&quot]Pros:[/FONT]
    Very highly polished surface for excellent reflectivity--well above most of the competition. High efficiency vs. price compared to other brands. Produces a focused beam, which is more useful in most aquariums. Included clips make mounting very easy by snapping directly onto the T5 lamp.

    [FONT=&quot]Cons:[/FONT]
    Reflective surface is very corrosion-prone. However, much initial corrosion can be avoided by using Zep Stainless Steel Cleaner (or any other non-abrasive stainless steel cleaner), as well as with subsequent cleanings to protect the surface. Relatively wide (2"), though not as bad as other reflectors, so it limits the amount of lamps per amount of space.

    [FONT=&quot]Star rating (1-5 with 5 being the best):[/FONT]
    ***** (5)

    [FONT=&quot]How long have you used the product?:[/FONT]
    For approximately four (4) years

    [FONT=&quot]Build quality and value for your money?:[/FONT]
    Build quality is high overall with a highly reflective surface and great performance

    [FONT=&quot]Other comments:
    Again, use a good stainless steel cleaner to protect the surfaces. Also try to mount them where it is easy to remove the reflectors for cleaning and/or bulb replacements. Try to clean them every few months for maximum performance.
