The light bulbs/tubes should have the wattage and the kelvin rating on them. Also make note of the connection type(Staright pin or square pin)

check hellolights.com

maybe someone else can be of better assistance to you

I just got new bulbs from hellolights.com. As klam said. the wattage will be on the bulbs. Most likley you have 2 - 10k and 2 -03 actinic. The only other thing you need is the pin arrangment, straight or square and the length (36"?).
