This fixture is not in their printed catalog. I was going through the overstock and clearance stuff last night and saw it.

It's a regular $300 fixture for $130. I just made a copy of their add. TFP is the one saying that it's perfect for plants. Notice at the bottom that I added in bold letters that it has saltwater bulbs.

I don't have any idea of the length. I was wondering that too. The picture shows the bulbs facing end to end so that would be a 48" unit. But the picture looks screwy to me. It looks like they are showing a 4x55w unit.

The best thing to do is contact TFP for that information.

The reasons that I posted it in the first place is that it's a deal at $130. It comes with 55w 50/50 straight pin bulbs. You could replace them with 9325K, 6700K or 10,000K bulbs and have a cheap planted tank fixture. I know that many of us a pinching our pennies. Also, some of the guys that have saltwater tanks might be able to use it.

I called TFP twice today and asked for the length and Jalli's website. The people that answered the call weren't able to help. They didn't know. Their Customer Service Dept is not open on Saturday. It's only open M-F.

So....:icon_ques

I'm not the one saying that it's good for plants. It's TFP's advertisement.

I just made a copy of the description that was on the website.

I know actinics aren't correct for plants.

At the bottom of the page I put in bold letters:

It's got saltwater bulbs.

I'm sorry for the confusion.

Looking at the picture, its got to be 48 inches, my guess.

The picture looks like it's a 48" 4x55w fixture to me.

I don't know what Jalli's website is. If someone does, this is what TFP lists as the Manufacturer Part #: 2PL3239AHB.

I went to several vendors' site that carry Jalli PC's. Heck, they either show the same picture for each Jalli CF fixture or no picture at all.

This cheap fixture is beginning to make me want to say something that Richard Pryor said years ago but I can't say it here.
