That IS a swinging price, Terry, but it drops a lot when you figure that 
you have 4 lamps to get rid of, unless you are into reef tanks. The 
highest Kelvin lamps that I find useful for FW planted tanks is about 
6500K. Some 10Ks with an extra high CRI are usable visually, but waste a 
bit of energy that could be going to photosynthesis if more output was 
at a bit longer wavelengths.

Perhaps they would be willing to substitute some 6500 and 5000K lamps 
for the 4 they list? Then it would really be a sweet deal (at least for 
those of us not in the Peoples Republic of CA.)
