I don't know much about different lighting systems that what I can read online in the specs section so I was wondering, right now all I have is the aqueon deluxe fluorescent strip light with a full spectrum bulb. At pets Mart they have a coral life t8 50/50 bulb for 18.00 bucks. Could I swap that bulb out for the I have now without any special ballast? ( 50/50 means 10,000 k
/actinic) I just assumed all bulbs in the world of 10,000k and actinic were t5 and needed a special ballast but I saw this t8 which is what I think the bulb in the aqueon strip light is. And also if this would work in my fixture do you think it would be capable of actually growing any thing.
