55 and 65 are usually interchangeable. BTW, I found a place on ebay that sells 4 55 watt bulbs for arouf $55 shipped. 10k, actinic or 50/50.

Depending on how much actinic you want. Get 2 50/50's if your unsure.

The bulbs I saw were not made by coralife but as long as the pins are the same - square 4 pin or straight 4 pin, the manafacturer should not matter.

the light "fixtures" have problems from wiring..
the Jebo kits come with too many blue colored/03 bulbs 2/3 of the light is 03.. (a 50/50 and a full 03 bulb hince the blue tint)
the bulbs are just bulbs.. as long as you get the K your wanting you should be fine..
