aquatraders.com - 72" DE MH Unit - YES OR NO?

YES OR NO? Anyone has success with the 72" DE MH Unit? Really considering for that price!

Odyssea metal halide system-

or should spend the extra money and get the Coralvue retro kit?

Well, I know someone on here just bought a fixture from them, and I seriously considere one as well. The price is definately right, but think about the fact that you have three types of lights on there and only one power cord. Are you gonna turn the individual lights on manually every day and night? Can't put them on a timer cuz there's only one cord is my point.

Unless, of course, you're into rewiring which I am not. So, I passed up on it. Maybe someone who's bought this will chime in too.
