Are you including the cost of getting whatever fixtures you will be 
putting these bulbs into? Four of those bulbs will cost you around $152 
including shipping. Then you will have to buy whatever pendants you are 
going to use. Three 96W kits from AHSupply can be had for about $170. 
You can get bulbs for about $30 each. Just think of it as the bulbs are 
the same price, but you will only have to buy three with the AHSupply 
kit when they go out. You will probably get much more actual light into 
the tank with the AHSupply kit also.
