Im not sure about prices, but VHO lights and Ice Cap balasts are good one, as for my LFS, I think they would sell a book to a blind man, but then again all are not bad

That's a pretty good price for the complete hood. You might check into the cost of a canopy for your tank. You can get a VHO retro kit from www.championlighting.com for $449.90+shipping. This is 2 Icecap 430's, endcaps, and URI bulbs of your choice. Not included are reflector and fans. If the complete hood is what you want, I'd say that's a good deal. Check to see if it comes with fans...you'll probably want them.

Are you saying that the first cost of $620 was not a complete package?
