Is this a good deal for t5-HO fixture?

2 - 48" t5-HO light fixtures. Single and dual for $85. 2 bulbs are actinic though. Thanks for the input.

He said "glo" isn't that the bulb? I'll ask him again.

both for 85 sounds like a good price, the dual bulb fixture is around $150 i believe, although honestly I think its overpriced for what it is. If you are putting them on FW tanks then you might want to factor in the cost of new bulbs if you don't like the look of actinics.

They are going on my FW rainbow fish tank. Do you know how much for a new bulb?

they are typically 10-20 bucks each but it just depends on if you can find them locally or not.

I just saw one for under $15. I think it is still a good deal even I have to buy 2 bulbs. I don't think I'll use the single fixture. I'll buy it anyway. Thank you Jetajockey.
