That pet place.com , or just type in the google engine coralife and the wattage ect and you should get a list of the places that sell them . They usually run about 23 or so for the 40 watters

You might find cheaper bulbs from other brands as well......brand name doesn't matter, just the pin arrangement.

Catalinaaquarium.com has 65w 6700K straight pin bulbs for $15: Catalina Aquarium. That is a great price. I've used their bulbs before and they are the same as any other when it comes to plant growth and quality.

And 22" should fit in the Coralife fixtures (I have them in my 30" Coralife and 48" Coralife).

I buy mine through #1 Big Als Aquarium Supplies: Fish Tanks, Stands, Decorations, Accessories and have for years. Great prices. Had 1 broken bulb this last time, they sent me a UPS return label, I emailed them when I sent it out, and had another one 3 days later.

Make sure you look to see if it's straight pin or square pin.

Catalina sells mostly straight configuration . And IME/IMHHO brand does matter , I can tell a diffrence on my coralife bulbs vs the catalina brand FYI .. Coralife is a higher quality and catalina is an entry light .both are good but coralife is better (I run 2 of the catalinas , and reciently changed one to the coralife and found better colors on the corals and growth on the coralife )

Folks--Thanks for all the feedback! Big Als has the one I need for $25.99 Coralife 6700 65w straight pin. LFS wanted $45!! Foster and smith did not have this bulb. Sadielynns experince with the Catalina has me leaning toward Coralife.
Thanks again folks!!

I also bought my light bulbs from Big Al's they beat competitors prices by 5% I found the bulb I needed for cheaper on a different site and called BigAl's they beat the price and made the sale shipping was fast as well. I usually shop Drfosters&smith but if BigAl's offers it there 5% price match makes the deal for sure.
