If you are talking about a strip light that you put on the top of the tank, they are quite expensive here in canada (compared to a package thing).

Like for example, at my local pet store, I can buy a 33 gallon tank, with top and light for $100 dollars. For just the strip light, it costs like 65 dollars.

So for relative prices, I guess its like 2 pounds per canadian dollar? so it should be like 30 dollars? The bulb itself here is like 14 dollars, so like 7 pounds? I would try to get a 18,000K color bulb, it looks very nice, and my plants grow like crazy with it.

I'm really frustrated with the price of lights in Canada too. I think I'll try to rig something up with a plain ballast and try to put a proper bulb in it. Has anyone done this?
