Good deal or not?!

So there's a guy who wants to sell me the following for $85 bucks. Current Nova extreme T5 HO 48" fixture w/o bulbs and a Coralife T5 non HO 48". Is this a good deal or should I pass?

How many bulbs for each fixture, the two bulb T5HO fixture sells for $110.00 on Amazon and the Coralife sells for $60.00.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Aight I was thinking it was still fairly expensive for a used fixture.
