I want to replace my old Coralife 2X96 watt light fixtures. What I liked about them is that I can turn each light on separately (two lamp cords per fixture) so that I have 4 light setting during the day.

The new T5 HO light fixture by Coralife only has one lamp cord per fixture ... can someone suggest another supplier so I can retain my 4 lamp control?

Thanks

... thanks for the recommendations. I am looking at Catalina Aquarium.

What do you do when you want to power each light separately so you can control them with timers? The Catalina lights have dual fixtures, which is great, but only one power cord? My old Coralife dual fixtures (2X96 watt) have two cords. I can't seem to find a similar fixture in the T5 HO lights.

You can contact them and they can build you a custom fixture. I have never seen a 2 bulb T5 with seperate power cords...typically dont see that till you get to the 3-4 bulb fixtures.
