I'm not trying to get in the middle of this AT ALL.....and like I said before I love the store and hope to support them soon! I just think Tritan probably had a point as far as overpriced equipment goes.

I think that's pretty obvious
Hey guys,

Sorry for the late responds kind of forgot to check this post. I have run into alot of people and discussed the problem I had at the store. Like esarkipato said I did recieve a personal PM after some of there spys reported this post to the store. Thats fine I am glad it got back to them so they could address the problems and look into the price gouging. I was asked to call and talk to the manager on duty and he explained to me what happend and offered me a discount on my next purchase. I Live an hour away don't know when or if that is going to happen but sure wish I could have gotten those lights for a better price at the time.
i did get the T-5 lights from Big Als online 2 day shipping they where two 48inch fixtures plus added a 10,000 k bulb for the price of there one freshwater fixture. i was told that problem has been taken care of and was glad to hear my post made a difference. I think i am going to stick with ordering hardware from online and fish and plants from the stores.
I was extremely happy with the conversation on the phone hope some day to make a road trip back to check out some plants that I can't find around here. Over all it was a positive experience.
