Not sure about geckos, but 300 notes does seem a bit steep for lighting.

If it's anything like Beardies (UVB and Basking lamp) then you should be able to get the whole lot of kit for 50-60 quid, and that's what I'd call quite a high price anyway.

Possible they were saying 300 quid for COMPLETE set-up.

But 300 for just lighting??? I think someone may have been wanting some holiday spending money.

But Again, I can't definately say for sure, as I don't keep geckos but i wouldn't of thought the lighting setup would be much different and 50 quid for lighting only is roughly what i'd put on it.
