    Zetlights possible group buy

    Ok gang I've been in contact with Zetlight in China. So far we have exchanged 48 emails so far. It's difficult to get good solid answers, but I think I've got some numbers if we can generate enough interest in a group buy. As you know a few of us have the ZT6500 but they also have the larger fixture ZT6600. The cheapest I've been able to find them here in the US is from SaltCritters, they are offering the 6500 for $450 and the 6600 for $800.

    If you're looking at new lights check them out. They are not the boxy 120W lights you see all over the net, these are very sleek and sexy. There are 3-4 channels and you can adjust the color for each channel for the time: sunrise, daytime, sunset, and moonlights. Timer is built in and come with remote. They come with hangers or feet to place them on your tank. I have 3 of the ZT6500 over my 125 and I love them, Lenny has one over his 40 and I think he's digging his as well, and bluespace too.

    So right here are the prices if we can generate enough interest (Lenny put out a feeler on the local boards too). The ZT6500 is $300 and the ZT6600 is $425. In addition, if you want one that is apex ready, that is an additional $40 per unit. That does not including shipping from China to me and from me to you but they won't give me shipping quotes until I give them quantities.

    So right now at these numbers (plus mystery shipping) please let me know if you would be interested in one or more of these units. If we get enough interest I will start collecting money for them and we'll get the ball rolling. If we don't get enough interest then oh well.





    JJ form My Reef to yours wanted me to post this. So let him or I know if you are wanting one or some info.

    I had spoken with them about 6 months ago and the shipping from china to my address per unit was quoted at around $80 each. Buying a case of lights only dropped the shipping down around $10 per unit and the price you quoted is what they quoted me. They didn't offer the option of the apex feature when I had originally spoken with them. Sexy looking lights for sure. Can you post more detailed specs on the # of leds, wattage, color of leds etc?

    Jared,
    Will you have them on your frag tank at fragtoberfest? That would give everyone a chance to see them.

    very similar, these have the two acrylic bars on either side of the light that glow blue which I think really makes them look sharp and draws the eye up to them as a designer fixture as opposed to just a black box
