    Go to their website, there is one in durban though and their globes cost about R280. Think the website is thelamphouse | Home

    I bought a 250W, 10000K Sylvania DE metal halide bulb for 400 bucks and they thought they were ripping me off. I think all the pet stores have been ripping us off for years.

    Its the ballast that came with the pendant. I'm not sure of the brand

    I'm quiet happy so far. I just need to get better actinics to balance the colours better. I have some no name brands and I want Geisemans

    No only 250 Watts. They are a different size to the 150's. Does Wazeers have Geisseman halides or actinics?

    In joburg we still get ripped off. The lamp house sells us 150W MH for around R400 but at capetown and durban the same company sells them for around R250...

    It is cheaper and the durban branch will ship it. The only reason the durban and cape town branches can supply it cheaper is that those branches supply the aquariums and thus have a higher demand for globes and therefore buy more stock. In joburg there isn't much demand...

    Joburg gives discount on quantity. So if we order a lot of globes, like say 10, then we would be able to get it at the same price as durban...
