Its possible he got the tank second hand and it came with a t5 fixture. Or its also possible that he bought the fixture separate in the store. I think kits are not as popular as they once were since i see a lot more t5 fixtures on sale nowadays and less tanks with the plastic hood and t8 fixtures. More often now, i see the tanks with the all glass canopy and customers need to buy lights separate.
