well point im getting at - if you order online I highly recommend them
Thanks, we have a Canadian supplier that I might try, saves the customs nightmare. I have a couple of shops that I will be near tomorrow and will look first. Taking Mr Pleco back tomorrow too. If its that much of a hassle and I have to order something I will probably order LED anyway... I need to consider that the fixture (ballast) is quite old, it would be a shame to buy a bulb then have the fixture go next.
