    Coralife Aqualight Pro 2x250w Halide 2x96w CF Fixture?

    I am currently running an underpowered 4x65w CF Coralife on my 90g, I'm in need of a better light and found a coralife aqualight pro 2x250w Halide 2x96w CF for 200 bucks on craigslist. Obviously this is an upgrade from my current fixture but is it worth 200 bucks?

    If I had seen this thread before this morning I would have said that if the bulbs were new, then ask if the price was firm.
    MH setups are running a little cheaper these days and you would have liked the light upgrade.

    Yes but my fear was the added cost of a chiller, at that point I should just save up for some leds.

    Yeah, you do have to take in all the conditions when you upgrade equipment.
    FWIW, I used mh lighting on my tanks for many years without a chiller. You can control heat issues with a few simple pc fans or a clamp-on style fan.
    Many people do it.
    Central air in the house also helps. lol
    It's when I went with several know heat producing pumps and 3 x 250 watt mh and 4 x 160 watt vho lighting that I decided to get a chiller.

    I did go all led lighting on my tanks and noticed a change right away.

    If you are dead set on going led, talk to our local fish stores about pricing and making payments. ( some may and some may not)
    I know of 3 stores in our area that carry popular leds. Ocean By Design, Barrier Reef, and Red C.
    I'm a big Radion fan because of the programming.
