I'm wondering if this is a good deal for t5,lights

This 48" HO T5 fixture is near perfect and well kept. It works flawlessly. It has a built in digital timer for 3 settings. The 1st setting controls the first 2 bulbs. The 2nd setting controls the other 2 bulbs and the 3rd setting controls the moonlights. Done properly you can simulate dusk and dawn effects on you aquarium. It comes with adjustable legs to help avoid contact with moisture and fit variable sized tanks.

The fixture comes with 2 - 10,000k bulbs, 2 - actinic blue, 1 - 15,000k and 1 - actinic purple.

This fixture has no problems and works 100%. It has been well kept and is in like-new condition.

First $80 gets it...or...Will do partial trade for coral frags + cash.

Possibly. But it depends on the age of the bulbs as well as the brand.

For that price get a set of Chinese LED and save the cost of replacing the bulbs.

Well the leds I want run about 300 for both so so I figured why not but I'm guessing to replace the bulbs it will run about 100 so I still save some for the first year

I went with 2 full spectrum 120w led evergrow lights. Actually were very cheap at 265 and seem to have great reviews.

Just to keep this updated I just receive my two LED lights. I must say I am shocked at how well the build quality is 3 quite fans. The dimmer knobs feel very nice.

Do you have a link for these lights? I'll be upgrading to LEDs soon and am interested in exploring options. How bright are they?

Well all I did was eBay 120w led and these pop up in a set of two and say dimmable on the picture. Just look for the one with three fans. I'll most likely run these at 30% because they are extremely bright at 100%
