No... not retarded... just need to go back a few steps and do your homework:

And base rock is just dried out rock that came from a reef that, in time, will become "live" with beneficial bacteria... then it will be "live rock".

The T-5 is smaller in circumference than the T-8s.

Does that mean the actual bulb is smaller or the screw in part is smaller?

The bulb is smaller. I don't think I have seen a "screw" in type T-5 for aquarium applications.
