The grey on looks really nice. You can get the elite in grey also if you like the extras.

90-H is awesome by the way, couldnt get hold of one so had to "settle" for the P.

You can always contact the company and ask for a shipping estimate

Approx 700 usd not including shipping costs. Less then half the price of a generic grey ada stand in my part of the world.

Having a hard time deciding on what lighting fixture to get.

Maxspect razor is nice but expensive. But fit and forget is often worth it in the end.

An ebay diy build would be nice but I dont know if I have the stamina to see a project like that through.

5 or more 30w par38 bulbs is the cheapest solution, but they get really hot so would have to build some sort of diy active cooling thingy for them. And I cant mount them from the ceiling (spelling?) So need to either make a 'gallow' or something.

Yeah those are probably them. http://www.greenaqua.hu/en/brand/ati.html?p=2

How about a single ADA Solar I NAG MH pendant? My personal favorite lighting spectrum for planted tanks. The plants really "pop" green under one.

I donīt really like the look of the ADA pendant lights, not sure why. And the price is way up there. Add a few bulb changes to that and... But I guess they do put out some really good light.

The 160w razor is about 700-800 usd over here. A hefty sum.

5 x 36w par38 ebay bulbs are about 180 usd but requires some DIY. Got some ideas on how it could be done and look in tune with the stand.

Get the razor, mostly because I am interested in one but have never seen one over a planted tank.

Experimenting with your money is very cost effective for me! Lol!

Have never seen irl you mean? You can google it and find atleast one or two videos or pics of it in action.

Edit: The film maker claims his razor were modified to a warmer light, just fyi.
