    I got my MH/VHO through AquariumLight.com . I checked and they have VHO bulbs for $23.95 US. See http://www.aquariumlight.com/product_info.asp?dbid=398 Although they price in US$ they are Canadian company located in Etobicote. I found theuir service to be really good. Just give them a call.

    Thanks reefmania. Can you pick up here at their Etobicoke location or do you go to their facilities in Niaragara NY? Hope the CDN $ keeps rising over .80 today

    That is the set I am looking at getting. It comes with everything like you said. The only thing I am worried about is if the bulbs will be as bright as the VHO's I am using now. Getting two of these would also mean I could sell my VHO setup.

    I checked out AquariumLight for VHO bulbs. The price is great but they wanted $45 to ship two bulbs.

    I am not sure if you can pick up. They delivered to Ottawa for me. I dont see why not. They would be able to tell if you called.

    Here's a link to another forum where their was a HUGE discussion on them... I spoke with Stephane at reefsolution directly (great guy) and asked him afew questions myself before I place my order... The link to the other site is http://aquariumpros.ca/forums/showth...2&page=1&pp=15 you can see a few pics as well showing the difference between the pc's of higher wattage and the T5's. T5's hands down were brighter and from what I've read because f their spectrum they give off a slight shimmer effect and correct me if I'm wrong here but that means a beter light penetration... I'm debating right now on the 48"plug and play or the 36" ones I'm planning on a larger custom tank for my living room and not sure until I get some quotes on the price it will cost me... Good luck Andrew with your choice.

    MOPS also sells VHO's at under $50 - and reasonable shipping costs thru the Post Office. I only replace my VHO's once a year. They are on an Icecap 660. FYI

    Good point Nick. I checked the Drygoods, and there were 48" 50/50 and white. Should have suggested contact with Ivan.
