Does anyone have this lighting fixture?

Fishneedit.com has a T5 4 bulb fixture for a 36" tank for $124.99. If you have one, is it as good a deal as it seems to be?

I have one. The bulbs that come with it are junk! So they should be replaced right out of the box. By the time you put even decent bulbs it it you are looking at the same price or more than just buying one that has good bulbs in it already and maybe moon lights or some other nece features built in. I'm selling mine to my brother and getting the coralife lunar fixture for less than I payed for that fixture and new bulbs. But the lunar comes with moon lights already on it and better bulbs too. Hope this helped

They are good for what they are no fan to cool and single reflector. Check this one out Amazon.com: Deep Blue Professional 30 Inch SolarXtreme T5HO 4 Bulb Light System With Moonlight LEDs: Pet Supplies I got one similar for my 55 the other day used. Easy to program and a big difference in the amount of light with the same bulbs. I switched to my API bulbs

For the same price as the one you just posted you can get the coralife which has more power due to having 28" bulbs instead of 24" bulbs. The only issue with that is only coralife makes them but they are good bulbs. The coralife also has a reflector for each bulb but does not have a timer. Which in my eyes is good because it is one less thing to go wrong. Timers are cheap anyways
