    I'm perfectly aware ivan sells them, is that where you buy yours from ??? 43$ a bulb when they are selling for 10$ a bulb in the us seems a bit ridiculous, especially when you have several tanks to look after

    I'm using MH. $10 US might be a lot higher by the time they are at your door.

    OSD is right; exchange, duty, taxes and that awful brokerage charge. Now I wonder if it will arrive in one piece? Just my 2 cents.

    Actually i've ordered bulbs from the states for the past 4 years and never had a problem, i don't see how a 10$ bulb could be more then 43$.

    BTW duty is the same thing as tax, brokerage fee through USPS is a flat 5$ rate, and i do believe that you have to pay taxes on all things bought in canada as well ??

    No... it frustrates me that the first response to my thread asking where people buy there PC bulbs was that ivan sells them.... i'm quite aware that this is a store i've been buying from here over the last 4 years and i think anyone that posts here KNOWS that this is a store
