I know this probably goes in the hardware section but I wanted to make sure EVERYONE saw this. My 120 upgrade was on hold because I could not afford the lights I wanted (2 x 250 MH
) everywhere I looked it was around $600 bucks.
How about this deal:
2 x Lumen Bright mini wide reflectors (109.95 each almost everywhere)
2 x Coralvue 250W Ballast (115.00 Each almost everywhere)
2 x Radium 250W 20k mogul bulb (85.00 Each almost everywhere)
So the total for this awesome light setup is 619.95
....way out of my price range. I shut down my build thread because this is what I wanted and I was not willing to comprimise
but wait....after I looked at virtually every online vendor I came across this
Coralvue 250watt Complete Retro Kit Includes 250w ballast, Coralvue Bulb, Reflector
I couldn't believe it That system for $366
I thought it must be a mistake. I called saltysupply.com to see if I could swap the mini wide for the mini.."Sure, no charge" I ordered it on the spot with the radium upgrade and "wide" reflectors.
Then I called my LFS
...they are awesome always give me a deal. I told them about the saltysupply system and he could not believe it either. he looked it up and compared part numbers and sure enough, exactly the same system that his cost is $210.
