Lol, I that is the fixture I was going to buy today, but my newborn got sick and had to go to the doctor. She told me she would hold onto them but I see she reposted them. It's cool though, first come first serve.

125 gallion fish tank / aquarium

If that is them, fixture is a little over 6 years old, but it looks to be in good condition. How did you get the wattage from her, because she had no idea that they were even halides when I talked to her, all she would tell me was how old they were. She want's WAY too much for the rest of her setup though.

Either fixture would require me to get new bulbs so thats not a deciding factor. I'm still waiting for the guy to get back to me. :-( I would love MH's for $175! I could turn over the extreme pro and be under budget.....

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

i thought you got the nova extreme pro theother day for $250? lol it's listed as a current fixture and looks like halides in the picture so I'm just assuming.

It isn't a guy, it is a little old lady. She is pretty picky too, it took me almost a week to get ahold of her, I wanted to buy them Thursday and then yesterday. But she was specific that it had to be Saturday. Then I called and told her I couldn't make, so she said I had to go Wednesday this week.

No, remember I found halides for 150 so I backed off the nova T5's, she agreed to sell them for that, but wouldn't give me her address until friday. Then today she told me she would hold them till Wednesday but I see now she reposted them today.

She also said she has a second person coming tomorrow if the first woman doesn't buy them. Maybe that is why she isn't emailing you. It is odd, she posted that exact ad on April 23 and didn't sell them. I emailed her, she agreed to sell them and then wouldn't give me an address until I couldn't go. Now she repost them and must have a ton of people, because she told me they're sold and apparently hasn't even emailed you back.

I did find some 72" PC in bradenton, but I don't know enough about PC to be comfortable buying them.
