Its here its here =)

this was a really impressive ebay buy. it was shipped all the way from california to my door just north of toronto in just one week. i ordered it last sunday and just got home from a half day of work to find it sitting by the door .

its in perfect shape, no dings or bangs (thank you UPS) and it came exactly like advertised. i haven't oppend it to see what ballasts are in there but i will be assuming since everythign else was as stated that the ballasts will be fulham workhorse.

PS: they are bright with high quality refectors

I have priced ATI everywhere lemme tell ya. Aquacave has the best overall price, but BRS has some bulbs that you get a quantity discount on when you get them. But not the aquablues I think the actinics and one other.

Check it out

i'll take a look, i put an order in with marine depot but apparently it becomes more of a hassle to ship it to canada

even aqua cave won't accept paypal from me and i don't have a credit card atleast i don't have a personal one

Hey Leo, if you don't have a credit card, try canadapost.ca/visa, it is like a prepaid visa credit card.
