Darn that bulb!!

My bulb for my fixture burnt out! I cane home to it flickering on and off, like a darn disco! The bulb is a coralife 50/50 6000k actinic 03.

The question is, where can i buy another that fits my fixture? Is there any way i coupd buy a better bulb, therefore upgrading my lighting for my tank and plants? Thanks!!!

Go to walmart and get one of the GE brand bulbs from the lighting department. Get the 'cool' color. I grew plants well with a pair of 32w T8's on a 55.
