China tariffs driving up the price of Aquarium stuff?
 
I notice that many of the 48" LED Aquarium lights are out of stock..across all the brands. Not all of course,but you do see the other sizes around.
I asked somebody about that and that's when he mention the trade restrictions on China and how all the goods we find bargain priced the last few years might stop.
Better buy now?

I have. Usually when the LFS goes out of business. You will never get a 500 gallon tank for $1,000 otherwise-ha ( I didn't buy,but wish I had). Same for a box of cleaned corals for a few dollars. Those I bought.
Back to ordering..I see some high quality looking heaters from China MUCH lower priced then half the wattage heaters by well known brands. Most of those not especially reliable either.
