What type of guarantee? Also moving to General Hardware and equipment discussion forum.
I`ve heard some pretty mixed results on AM lights. He needs to give you about a 6 month guarantee or longer if possible.
Look at it this way, new lights similiar to what you describe are 769.99 at that fish place, you need to replace the mh bulbs and probally the t5 which may run you at least 150-200 dollars, so tthe total cost will be around 500 dollars a unit when said and done.the thing you don't know is how long did the lfs run the lights and if there were any problems with them.
