The guy at my LFS
gave me a stand for a 72 bowfront tank for what it cost to have it shipped (it was scratched up on the bottom a little bit and when he got it replaced the truck driver told him to keep it) anywho, I want MH
lights for it but the price is killing me on these things..... I would need 500 watts of light on it to do what I want with the tank and thats going to be over $500.... witch I know isn't bad, but I'll get everything else (tank skimmer stand hood rock substrate and whatever else) needed to start for about the same so I guess I'm being cheap, but is there any kind of low price option as far as MH
lighting goes? If it's better just to go ahead and pony up the cash I can deal with that, but I would like to hear if there is a more cost effective option.
thanks for any replies in advance!
