Alright, not from Manitoba but seriously considering ordering from these guys... (6 bulb t5s units for under 300 INCLUDING bulbs/hanging kit...)

Any pros or cons would be appreciated...

The prices are in US funds so the 36" is actually $341.99 and the 48" is $371.99. Still, not bad prices. I am also curious.....

We bought our skimmer from there and we got good service :biggrin:

it'd cost $32 to ship it...so $370ish...with bulbs and hanging kit.....

I sent them an email inquiring about the reflectors, bulbs etc. Let you know if I hear anything back.

The reply: The unit is manufactured for SWC. This includes the bulbs and ballasts. It is one reflector that is aluminum.

Pass on the one reflector :p Unless you could retrofit for cheap.

herm...yes indeed. Although the pic did/does look misleading...

*sigh* the search continues...

They look cheap but a couple of people on here have said they come with individual reflectors. Maybe search them out on NR and RC and see what buyers have to say.

I have bought the relacement set ups - they came with individual reflectors. Have been running for 3 plus years. Only complaint is the plastic clips that hold bulb to reflector get brittle very quickly and they break - had to rig up system to connect them.

if I remember right, last time I was in there I looked at them and it is a single piece reflector, but it is bent in the proper M shape.
