Light Bulbs

I have a Coralife compact strip light...has 2x 65 watt 10,000k
and 2x 65watt actinic....
i know that your suppose to replace the bulbs every year or half of year?
when do you replace it?
also WOW they are EXPENSIVE!
each bulb is like 27 bucks....
thats insane in my opnion especailly if you have to replace them every so often.
Also anyone know a better site to order from that beats the 27 dollar price?
TIA

Try E-bay I found 96 watt PC's for less than $20.00 although they are not coralife they appear to work fine. One supplier E-mailed a lower price after my first order.

Hellolights.com and reefgeek.com are good as well. Shipping is cheap which some places charge a lot for. Hellolights has stuff on clearance alot too.
