I'm a cheepskate, so if I can get a better deal and not suffer too much by way of a loss of quality I will go for the cheaper price.
I am looking at either an All-Glass 30" CF hood with that GE 9325(whatever)K bulb 55watt (69 usd at big al's)
OR a 55watt brite kitt from Ahsupply.com
which is the best deal... I would like to order other things from big al to offset the cost of shipping for JUST a damn light.. but if the AH supply light system is that much better(can only see that maybe the reflector wil be better) maybe ill swallow the 8.95 shipping..
If you got a comparison sight or review sites post links.... I really just want a light to be able to grow some low-light plants.(trying to compete with the stupid diatom problem i got---without filtering the water for silicates or buying a RO system) along with adding some plants to the aquairum.
