What a deal! 48" MH

Well, if you're like me and want to step up to MH but don't want to pay the price. And, if you don't want to settle for a cheaper brand but want a Coralife fixture, this deal is for you!

I couldn't believe it when I saw it. I've been looking at these fixtures for over a year and they're all $400 +

I just bought one myself, so I'll let you know how the service was.

Here's the link:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=270077431777

The only downside I could see was that they are on backorder and won't ship for a couple of weeks, but I've waited this long, right?

Those aren't CORALIFE 48" HQI PRO. They are CORALIFE PC lights.

But still not a bad deal.

Unless you miss linked. The same seller does sell the Coralife MH light for $549.95

I agree with tecwzrd...those are PC lights and not MH lights. But their MH auction is still a pretty good price at $549.

I feel like the mother of all idiots. I already have this PC fixture! I was doing a search for MH's, then I changed it to just Coralife but didn't put the MH in there with it.....so when I came across it, I didn't even think about it not being MH!

Mods I'm begging you to erase this thread! ha

The MH he has sell at drsfosterandsmith.com for $769.99, so it still looks like a great deal. Call them and see if they will price match, I know thatpetplace.com does (not too sure if they compete with eBay stuff). You could try and tell them you saw it at their website:
http://www.aquariumsuperstore.co.uk/
Although, that store is in the UK, I think....

Dr. Nate, since the item is on backorder I'm sure you can cancel the order if you want...though I'm not positive. I know ebay has one of those bid retraction options, maybe you can do that. Or maybe the seller will simply send you the MH instead. Regardless, it wouldn't hurt to contact them and let them know what happened. Simple, honest mistake.
