WTB- HO or VHO T5's for 48" canopy

My lighting in my canopy is starting to fizzle out on me, so I am looking for something to mount inside of my canopy that sits over my 55 gallon tank. Anyone have lighting for sale? Thanks

No moon lights.
Even if you find a used system,you probably will have to replace the bulbs.

T5HO and T5VHO use exactly the same bulbs. T5VHO is just T5HO bulbs being overdriven by an icecap ballast

I ordered these for $100 and they have the bulbs on sale for $10 each also! So I got 2 fixtures and an actinic bulb, and a 10k bulb for $120 total ($132 shipped)

thanks RR for the offer, but I think I can do it! I have moon lights on my two saltwater tanks, and I even put some in my 55 gallon freshwater--I just LOVE they way it looks at night in tanks with moon lights! It's very mesmerizing....
