in order to save about 33% off their regular price.
The reseller saved me even more by including those
8800k bulbs which at the time were pretty cheap
because the company making them went out of
business. so for each fixture I bought 2 colormax
6700k, and now have a spare 8800k & colormax/67
on the shelf when it comes time for replacement.
Just my luck, Coralife was bought out, and those
colormax/67 square pin bulbs are impossible to find,
so it's just dumb luck I was "forced" to stock up
I love the color rendition in my tank, it's just a shame
I don't have a camera yet worthy to document it all.
my Ludwigia Guinea look like they are on fire with all
these mixed up light colors.
