    I just purchased this light. It was a very spontaneous buy. I dont even have use for it but i thought why not have extras. The light is 2 years old. Fully functional but needs halide bulbs. Whats the most you would pay for rjis light or expect to sell it for?

    I bought that exact same light for $180 used. Brand new ati and Phoenix bulbs.
    I just scored though. I would have paid $400 for it.

    I was thinking i could resell it for more and make a few bucks

    Is everything growing well since you went from halide to led? I'm on the fence with this decision.

    I see the same amount of growth and even more growth with some of my corals since making the leap to led, completely happy with my decision
