4x250W & T-5's

I'm looking to upgrade my lights to a 72" MH with T-5's.

I'm looking for 4 x 250W with T-5's. The only fixture that I found was the aqua medic fixture http://www.marinedepot.com/md_viewIt...product=AQ1861

Does anyone have ant other fixtures to look at? I can't go with a 3 x 250 due to my center brace on my 125 perficto aquarium. I really want to go with 4 mh light's because I want to grow both LPS & SPS, and a few clams.

Thanks
Dave

I would consider 4 x 175 if your also wanting T5's. 4 x 250 is a LOT of light and a lot of electricity

I'm looking at the same fixture, I'm picking up my 72" 215gal. Oceanic Monday and waiting to see the brace location. FYI premium aquatics and champion lighting have it for 1299.00.

Rxinc. Yes I was looking at premium's web site, I'm 3 hours south from indy. The bad thing is that I'd have to pay tax on that, I'm from Indiana. What would shipping be from Champion be? any clue?
