I'm going to check this place out this weekend. Super cheap lighting deals. They have a MH+PC combo for $200. Comes with electronic ballast, digital timer, and the bulbs!!!

Please keep us posted. The prices are too good to be true.

Didn't AHSupply say the reflectors were basically ineffecient?! You may need to open it up and replace the reflectors, but I don't see how it will change anything since the unit is so cramped together. And maybe you can replace the ballasts with WH ballasts. With a bit of tweaking it may work.

On other hand, their aquariums look amazing; with it's built-in wet/dry filter, digital timers, and an excellent high-quality finish...it looks worth it.

So I went to the store today to check things out. These guys are going to be making a lot of business. They wouldn't let me take any pictures. The aquariums and stands were really nice. They have cheap knock-off's of everything (carbo plus, eheim canister filters). Things are made with the cheap plastic, but it looks really nice for the price you pay. I'm looking into getting the 150 W MH system. It comes with everything, hangers, mounting legs, bulbs. It comes with an electronic ballast that is floor mounted and has a digital timer (nothing cheap about it). The fixture is metal and looks really nice. Comes out at the end of the month.

No pictures, why?

What is your opinions on their other PC fixtures?, worth the money ($30-50), even if they are made of cheap plastic.

I've heard that the JEBO lights don't last very long.

I guess you could make them work. Reflectors are a big part of PC lighting. I've used cheap reflectors and noticed the difference in the past. But if you just got more light, I guess you could balance things out.

The shipping prices are ridiculous! Anyone in the area willing to ship a purchase for me?

Thanks,

David
