    I need to replace some of the bulbs on my 250 and must admit to being shocked at the R700 per bulb price at my LFS. Are there any cheaper alternatives?

    Yeah mate, go for the ATI bulbs.. Bit cheaper and more colour options available. Great bulbs.

    R700 for the 39W T5 yikes.....for the 650 the longer ATI 80W ones are usually topping out in the R450-500 range.

    Not sure where you are located, but I have seen them at, dorry's pets, jungle aquatics (although their prices are inflated somewhat), lifestyle pets, and I think wild on pets has.. I am sure their are more places around that have. I would suggest phoning ahead making sure they got stock and pricing. The red Sea bulbs are ridiculously priced.

    Red Sea bulbs are over priced no matter where you buy them in the world and I dont think that the are worth it.
