Really annoyed with Deep Blue SolarXtreme ...very annoyed, any suggestions?

I have the Deep Blue Solar Extreme 48" T5HO light -I've had it for 7 months
. 1.stock lights suck -replaced with better light bulbs
2. I just broke the suspension tabs...again (tiny and flimsy plastic tabs). And the provided legs are too short -can't even open the glass top.
3. The blue lights have stopped turning on - if I turn off the whole system a couple of times - they start working again. But it is completely random. This is very annoying as well.

Any suggestion with the tabs? Maybe another company makes similar tabs (but metal maybe)?
And should I check the wiring of the whole light fixture? Or is it just completely and utterly useless now?
