Question Where do you buy your PC bulbs?

Where do you guys buy your PC bulbs? LFS? Online?

I was hoping to buy some next month when I place a purchase over at Dr. Foster and Smith's, but they don't carry the Coralife 65W 6700 PC Bulbs (straight pin)! -argh-

Does anyone know of any good deals out there? It would be great getting them locally; less worries of them being damaged.

Any help appreciated!

Note: I see Big Al's has it for $25.99 (shipping not included). Better to wait when free shipping is available of course.

Hellolights might be considered local for some - meaning that you could even save the shipping. They're located in Orange right off the 57 freeway.

Christin,
Something else to consider is 55W 9325's.

Otherwise, Aquatic Warehouse has the Coralife bulbs at a fairly high price (but they are local).

And for anyone in Orange County, Marine Depot has a will call window so you don't have to pay shipping.

I'd still consider switching to a 55W. You can get the 9325K's, or 6500K, for about $14 each plus minimal shipping.

Cool! I'll look into that too Mike. Locally would be nice, but the price I know would be higher. That's why I was hoping to do one big order at one place and save on shipping. You know with the holidays coming up, everyone is going to have free shipping. I'm getting a canister filter, plus other items and I need new bulbs too. It would be nice to do it in one big swoop!

Thanks again for all the info everyone!

Both HelloLights and Marine Depot are "local" to around the OC area. =) HelloLights has the cool coupon too. =)
