Need help finding the right bulb to order online!!

Ok i recently bought a wierd fishtank. The person that i bought my tank from sworn that the tank was a 35 gallon fishtank. I looked it up on the net and 35's don't exist. Well, on top of that the light bulb that came with the tank didn't work either. The reflector is: 30" Fluorescent aq. Reflector that can support up to 120 volts, 20 watts and ""50"" oz. The light bulb that was on the reflector is an all-glass aquarium 17 watt aquarium lamp. What i want to know is if anyone can tell me my tank size by my reflector and again its a 50 0z. Also i been trying to find the proper light bulb too and i see others that are similar like, 120V 20 watt 60Hz. Notice that the 60Hz is different from my 50 0z. Thanks in advance, for your support.



Checklist -
*tank size
*light bulb

Maybe it's a 37 gallon. Here are dimensions I found online (in inches) 30 1/4 x12 1/2 x22 3/4. Same footprint as a 29 or 20 long.

Well any answers on pin-pointing the light bulb? it was 50hz not 50oz by the way.

where are you located? Home current in the US is 60 hz, not 50. I cannot speak to everywhere around the globe, though.
