Need info/reviews on this light!

I need a cheap light system, less than $200. I found this on ebay, anyone have any experience?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWA%3AIT&rd=1

Anyone have any other place to buy, or something better let me know!
Thanks!!

For a 55 gallon tank that would be about 4 1/2 WPG. It would be OK for alot of corals.

Thanks but my reply would not have meant so much without DT`s Backing. No problem 007

Im also interested in buying a light off of ebay but I do not have much experience in online buying. If you get the light could you post any comments you have about it. i think that would ease some of my concerns. I like the prices on Ebay!!

I`ve never bought lights off ebay but I do believe you get to post comments about them. You can also come and post here and tell us what you think about it so we`ll know next time. What type tank are you going to have? What type lights do you want, Cowpilot.

My 55gal with a few corals, thats my goal for this tank. However, I want to upgrade to 125gal with everything imaginable in it! So I would really love to get a nich MH right now. I really love the way it makes the water shimmer on the rocks! thats worth the price alone. But I am also on a tight bidget right now, so I dont think thats possible.


Hey Cowpilot, What is your tank info? And what do you pla to do with it?

My tank is a 100gl that I would like to do a mixed reef in. I cant setup the system because i will be moving soon so Iam just trying to get all of the hardware for it.

Like you said 007cable id like to have some halides but I dont know if i can afford them.
Right now I think I might go with 4 80 watt T5's.
That will leave me room to expand later on.
Hope all goes well with the lights!!
