I was thinking of converting to Led from a power compact 70 gal medium light requirements. Is the Finnex CSA approved for Canada if not what other LED would you recommend

Finnex is not available in Canada thru any retailer. I was also interested in the light but Finnex replied back to me that "our products were originally certified for the Asian and European markets. It was brought to our attention later on that we needed a Canadian certification too. It's simply not cost effective for your market anymore". It is $300+taxes if you order thru Amazon.ca
As an alternate I went with the Fluval Aquasky LED 48", it is 35 watts and comes with a remote. Very nice light and comes with a 3 yrs warranty. Picked up from Roger's Aquatics on boxing day.

Cheers

Price and feature comparison

Finnex 24/7 - $ 304.58 + taxes + shipping for 48" from Amazon.ca or get it shipped across the border from Amazon.com...bit cheaper.

Fluval Aquasky - $209 - $25 free coupon on the box = $184 + taxes only for 48", 35 W with full remote ( bought on boxing day for $148.00 (taxes included), 3 yrs Fluval warranty. Try Rogers Aquatic , Pet Culture or Aquarium West. Ask them about the $25 coupon. I am very satisfied with this light , very bright, beautiful colors, its worth it though its just been about a month I am using it.

current satellite led+ - $188.95 + taxes , 1 yr warranty, 30W, read reviews about returns.

Hope this helps

Well if its the Finnex Planted+ 24/7 you're talking about, I would say just go for it because I don't think there's any other better LED with the features like it has. If it's not available there try importing it.
