Go with the craigslist one. It comes with extra bulbs and they have the same watt outputs. Just make sure it is in working order first because it IS used.

Thanks Slitherbomb.
Ya, don't want to buy it and it stops working in a week. Extra bulbs.. How do I know if they are not used. Or does that not matter??

Idk, maybe they would be wrapped in the package they came in. I don't think that it would matter though, but if you really care, then I would test each bulb in the light fixture if they are not packaged.

Yeah, when the bulb starts to get old, the spectrum drops. But that is usually after a year of use, and if the bulb hasn't been used, and is new, it doesn't matter how old it is.

I just got back from work. Anemone is all open and looks good. Pic attached.

When I left it was hiding under the rock I was fearing the worst. It was all close up. I fed some brine shrimp and went to work.

I am do happy. Thanks you guys, all of you.

I will get new lights tomorrow. 

Anemone fully open today. Just fed some brine shrimp. It's all tangled up eating it.

But I had heard that anemone does not open in regular light??? Or eat...
Confused......
