cant find replacement bulbs

I bought a 30 inch, Coralife Aqualight high output Lighting Fixture, with 2x31w,T5 bulbs about a year ago. I wanted to replace the bulbs and cannot find replacements. They seem to be a odd size, none of the pet suppliers here in Maine or on the internet seem to have them. I would appreciate any and all suggestions.

Are you sure they are 31 watt? I dont even see that offered in any coralife fixtures....I'm still looking though. Are they 24" bulbs?

30" bulbs are only made by Coralife. I've got a 30" T5NO fixture that I'm pretty sure was made by Coralife and I've only been able to find Coralife bulbs in that size. I'm tempted to try moving the connectors closer together so I can use 24" bulbs when the current bulbs burn out.
