Coralife CF fixture melted sockets

First off I have this fixture -Aquarium Lighting: Coralife Lunar Aqualights Compact Fluorescent Strip Lights
I was replacing bulbs and found that one of the sockets has been melting and one of the pins and a small section of wire is exposed. I know, not good, especially sitting 3 inches above water! I searched but couldnt find where I could get replacement sockets for this light. I can change them myself but need to find the parts. I've emailed oceanic but havent heard anything yet. Anyone had to replace these and know where I can get the parts? And is this common on this fixture?

I dont know exactly what you need for that, but I found this site has many parts and lots of light stuff.

You say that the fixture is so close to the water that you don't want to get it wet, but it should have a clear cover over the bulbs to stop that from happening. Do you still have it installed?
