Had been looking for used lighting as I'm on a budget- what a new hobby to start eh?
Anyways. is this a good price for a new fixture? comes with bulbs.
Coralife Aqualight, Dual Linear Strip Light, 2X65W, 30 inch= $123+s/h

Thanks for input, I'm learning a lot here!

That is the standard price for that fixture. Are you going to be putting this over a 29 or a 20 gallon?

29 gal.
Would something like this be sufficient for shrooms, some leathers, zoos, and the like?
thanks!

They will do great. It is a taller tank so your growth won't be great. But you will get growth. For an extra hundred you could get a 175watt MH for that tank. Then you'd be rockin. Or you can get DIY 175MH for about 180$ and build you own hood. That is my plan in the near future for my tank.
