The brand is not mentioned first of all. Secondly, if those lamps need replacing, which they probably do, it's going to cost you another 80-100 dollars. T5 lamps generally last about 9 months before they start shifting spectrum.

Whichever you prefer. Both will do whatever you need them to as far as growing corals or nicely lighting a tank. Some prefer the look of the multi colors, while others prefer the blue and white units.

Turns out this was exactly it. After I ordered mine he texted me and lowered the price. He also said he didn't need it because he just got Chinese LED
