A few question about light

I just pick up the following light setup below. How do I tell how much watt is it?
Got it for $200, is it a good price?

The other question. She told me she just replaced the bulb on the left side. It looks blue. The middle and right looks yellow. Is the blueish look ok for corals? I was thinking of replacing the middle and the right bulb.

thanks in advance

nice find for $200 yes the blue look is preferd for corals its a good balance of the spectrum. the reason the middle and right look yellow is #1 its a 10k bulb and the left is a 14k bulb or #2 its old an the bulb as made a spectrum shift #3 or both

there should be a model #on it somewhere you might be able to find out how many watts by that
