Can t5 no work

Can t5no work? Can't find the T5ho. Would I still need the 4 bulbs for a 120gallon tank or would I need more for low light plants. This is the fixture

36" tubes

t5 21W 2000 lumens
t5ho 39w 3300 lumens
2x2 Watts for a 72" tank is prob. fine for low light..

ERR they don't say what COLOR bulbs come with it.. but '"I'd" assume blue?

ABOVE is also LED?

TOO confusing.. Really poor marketing..

The LEDs in those are for moonlighting, and the included tubes are cheaper 6500K bulbs. It'll work, but a T5HO from a hydroponics place would probably be easy enough to find in a major metro area, depending on where OP is located.
