Icecap 48" 6 Lamp T5 Retro Kit, better than piecing it together?

I am looking for "the catch" but I can not find any.
I am going to need an 18-20 bulb setup for the dream tank I am designing.

I could just buy 3, T-5 Fixtures (2 constellations and 1 solar flare) for $2217 + shipping, no bulbs.

Piece it all together for $1825 plus shipping, no bulbs, lumber and time not included.

Or buy 3 of the Icecap 48" 6 Lamp T5 Retro Kits, comes with bulbs, pay for shipping.

Seems odd that way.
