Anyone know where I can get some? looks like some Home depot's carry it and some don't? Just figured I'd ask where you guys have bought it before I drive around town looking for it :)

Bulk Reef Supply is the only place I know of. I'm interested to hear if there are other sources. :)

You could try Eecol electric in Calgary and I believe in the electrical trade its called lighting diffuser. When I lived in Edmonton I used to buy it at Eecol. They also have some awesome options for diy lighting. T5 and led.

Called Eecol, they said they'd have to order it in and they weren't sure if they could get it. They only stock metalic and white. Thanks though!

A long time ago I found a place that would sell it. I'll see if I can dig up the thread with the info. I don't think it was EECOL that I got it from but it was a similar kind of industrial lighting place in the Douglasdale area.

It wasn't cheap though, it was easily 3-4x the cost of white. I remember at the time concluding that if I ever wanted more, I would go with white, and then use Krylon Fusion to make it black (you can get Krylon at Canadian Tire, and when dry is safe to be in contact with the water).

Found the thread but it's not going to help. I had found it at Litemor, and apparently they don't exist anymore. http://www.canreef.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=28205&

This store made a blog post about trying to attract former Litemor customers, so maybe given them a try: http://www.gescan.com/stores/alberta/calgary/

Other options are maybe Brite-Lite (www.brite-lite.com), EECOL, and maybe Calgary Lighting Products (http://www.calgarylightingproducts.com)

Good luck, please post back if you find it anywhere as it's good to know that sort of thing..
