New to site first help forum still kind of new to aquariums

Hey there my name is Betsy I started my journey with saltwater with a friend's help. It went well for a couple years and I gave up on it due to major issue in life at the time.

I've tried again and it was just too much for me. I'm now an owner of a fresh water tank and going well. Ive had it for almost 10 months. Ive had live births and saved 1 and some others have died. I have no idea what brand tank I got and the bulb I'm assuming is burnt out. It didn't come out so easy I unscrewed and unplugged what the bulb was attached to. Do I need to replace the whole assembly? The bulb would not release? ! Any help would be appreciated I was thinking of taking it in somewhere.

welcome to AA
if you can post a pict of your light and I'm sure we can help you figure it out
just guessing here since there's no pict
It most likely is a T-5 or a T-8 florescent bulb they have two pin like ends that slide into a slot than turned 1/2 way to lock it in
you would need to do it in reverse turn it 1/2 way then gently pull it out of the slots
hope that helps
