I'm not growing any corals. I just need it to light up the tank so I can see in.

It's supposed to have two fixtures, but one is missing sadly.

One t-8 would be fine for saltwater but it most likely would definitely not support coral.

This is just a FOWLR tank, so no need for anything too powerful. Just want to replace this old bulb so the tank is lit up a bit more.

The starter only needs to be replaced if when you turn the light on it takes more then 15 sec for the bulb to light. And when you replace the light get the best for lighting fish.

Ok I just learned a little more tonight thank you. This is why I don't chime in to much I'd hate to give someone the wrong advice.

It takes about 5 seconds to fully turn on. It'll flicker then come on fully.

No worries. I'm glad you learned something.

Here's a pic since everyone loves pics... Stills needs a bit of work but this tank has come a long way from the condition it was in when I picked it up.

Thanks! It came with a sergeant major, a skunk clownfish, and a pajama cardinalfish. As of now I plan on adding nothing to it. I'm leaving for college in june, so sadly I'll have to break down the tank then. It's a shame... But after I graduate college and I have my own place it will be set up again! It seems like forever from now, but I couldn't pass up the deal when I saw it on craigslist. I know I'll thank myself in the future lol
