I don't know much about Current USA fixtures, you'd be better off reading reviews from marine depot or similar marine supply website. I think $100 is about reasonable, but after paying ~$17-20 for each new bulb you buy, it might be better to find a new fixture for just a little more than the ~180 you'll be putting into a used one.
If you get it and switch bulbs, you'll need T5HO bulbs, NOT T5. I think they are 39W each?
