I shop in brooklyn zoo all the time and they do honor the 10% off, any problem ask for Peter or debbie
or even mike
as far as the bulbs . it is not just what fits the ballast has to match the bulb
t5 should not be used in a regular fixture. They produce more light
there is 2 different t5's t5 reg and t5 ho( high output)
match the ballast

How do you match the ballast as the packaging the bulb comes in says fits all compatible electr onic ballast. This is a coralife t8 32 watt color max and actually I thought it was a t5👿👿So the NX time I go to zoo ill let her no😡😡
