Yep, I've looked at the PC/CF options:
AH Supply (2x 96w kit)- 114.99 + 32.99 +32.99 (bulbs sold seperatly)
PSL (2 x 96w retrofit) - 200.00
HelloLights - 2x 96w - 225.00
AB - 260w - 290$ 260w retrofit (221.69)
The AB JBJ 260w setup is nice,I'm very tempted to just buy it. Except for the fact that I can barely get bulbs for the 13w'ers I have now. I can't imagine trying to get 96 or 65w versions. Whereas Metal Halide is very easy to find up here (Used in the floodlighting at the mines)
Mike: I've thought about those setups, But all the prices I saw caused me to flip the page quickly. A quick looks still shows 175$ range (didn't price shop - could probably find cheaper). My concern with the icecaps is that I've heard some less than positive feedback about them.
Back to research
(I did find some 6500k's in the 70w HQI - in england
