Need quick lighting questions answered

Hi there,

I am going to be purchasing an aqualight fixture, it has 2x150 watt MH with 2x65 watt pcf's. I just wanted to know how long MH bulbs last before you have to change them.

Is this a good fixture? I have seen them around on canadian websites for 600 and up. I can purchase it for 400 CAD.

I think it's a good deal?!

Set up: 40 Gal Coral Reef (soon to be!)
2xKoralia 2, 1xHeater 150watt, 1xTunze 9002 skimmer, 50lbs x live rock, 1" argonite sand bed, 1xPhosban Reactor
Livestock: 2xclowns, 1xBlue Tang, 1xCleaner Shrimp, 1xConch, 5xTrochus Snails, 1xBlood Shrimp, 3xHermits, 1xSea Urchin

the PC bulbs tend to go the fastest. i would change the halide bulb every 8-12 months.
