    Hi riyadh,

    Thanks for your query. From our normal range of high-output t5 fittings we only keep the standard dual (2x) and quad (4x) fixtures with no led's. They come complete with tubes (half white, half blue). The 54w dual goes for around R936 and the quad for R1,823 (both including vat) at retail outlets across the country. To be honest we've had problems in the past with LED's built into the units. Plus timers add another component that can fail which makes it very difficult for us to give good after-sales service & support - the units would have to be sent back to us and completely stripped to get repaired. The current units we bring in are very solid and it's mostly the ballast which could fail. The ballast are external and just need to be unplugged & brought back to the shop for a replacement (the fitting can be left on your tank).

    Kind regards

    Scott
