The AquaticLife 48'' 6 bulb T5 HO sells for 529.99 at several places on the web. I just bought and installed a 36'' two days ago. So far I am very pleased with the light. They have a built in light control timer that lets you individually set the on-off times for the white, blue and led lights.

Is that a european price?

I'm sure it is a great light. That price seems a bit high. For $750 I could get one helluva LED fixture built.
