You can buy 2 LEDs cheaper then that and won't have to replace the bulbs every 6-8 months... Just a thought.

I'm up for a bulb change now at around 9 months of use. I could squeeze a couple more out of them though. The fans help life expectancy a lot and I love the fixture which I got my legs for free since they took so long to check me out (free $60 haha) but it still does get warm since I got 6 t5s over 46 gallons lol
