Light Question

I figured that this would be the right place to ask this.
I have a 10 gallon tank, gravel bottom, Aquaclear 20 filter, and an old Stainless aquarium light(with a coralife 10000k F15T8 lamp in it).
Currently, have some anachris and a Bronze Wendtii(Cryptocoryne wendtii) and one betta.
I'm wondering if they still make magnetic ballasted aquarium lights(I can't seem to find any replacement ballasts for the one I have right now)? I really can't be around the newer electronic ones(if you really want to know the details, I can share).
Thanks.

I'm going to move this to the General Hardware/Equipment Discussion. I think it will yield better results than here in the Planted Tanks section.

No problem.

As far as your question, google shows quite a few magnetic ballasts... magnetic ballast - Google Search

I am not all that familiar with them, but it looks like they are readily available online. You may also be able to find one locally. I have a couple hood/light combos for 10g's just laying around. I'm sure a craigslist ad would yeild something.

I should have been clearer. The ballast in this light is a one off type of deal(much thinner than I've ever seen before). That's why I was wondering if the hoods still come with magnetic ballasts. I'm also thinking of possibly getting a 2 lamp one at some point.

Oh... ok. Sorry. Every hood/light combo I've seen lately has electronic ballasts. Others may have more input though.
