ouch. I can't imagine buying lighting from the LFS. With the huge markup those crooks charge I'd be broke.
Sounds convenient though. If you've got the discretionaryincome, more power!

MadManMac: Anemones live that long? If you're thinking of corals the actual polyps only live to be a couple of years.

Yes. Anemones live for centuries in the wild.
