replacement T-5 fluorescent end cap

I'm looking for replacement endcaps for my coralvue t-5 lightfixture. Anyone have any leads.
Thank you,
TC

Hmm, I believe a T5 endcap is a T5 endcap. I wouldn't think you'd need to find specific coralvue ones. hellolights, diyreef, marinedepot, all these places carry retrofit parts that would probably work. It's just a 2-wire input that could be easily spliced in.

Are you sure you have bad endcaps? That's not something that typically fail since they're passive units.

Yeah, the socket cracked. I found some at 1000bulbs.com. Otherwise I would have to go with the larger waterproof units that can't fit in the lowprofile unit that I have.
Thanks Neilan

I didn't have a good experience with them. I would look elsewhere.
