I don't know about fixtures but I just got my bulbs from Aquariacanada.com. They were 250 watt 14000k and cost just 35 apiece plus shipping. We got two for 85 cause shipping is the same for multiples.

I just bought my MH mogul 250W MH at DIYREEF on sale for $149.00 complete retro including bulb. I also have a Coralife 4x65w retro kit as well installed. I don't know how the MH looks yet, but can't wait to see it. Here is the link if you are interested:

Hey Frogiii - I bought my MH setup at diyreefs.com. They had a sale which included the ballast, spider reflector, and a 14k bulb. It looks really nice now. I love the way it shimmers above the water. For $149 I can't complain. The only thing I did have to do this weekend was rebuild my canopy so it would high enough above the water.

Mike

I like Ocean Encounter. They will set you straight on the right lights to buy. They build their own ballast and if you search around you will see that they are getting better reviews then Ice Cap and the Can run all of the new bulb like XM DE. And they are CHEAP.

I am glad to see the competition is driving down the prices of MH. The electric bill cost is bad enough to run them. 8O

Thanks for the info CBRGuy.
