My light flickers

Has anybody ever had this problem? One of my 65watt, half actinius i think, it is one blue bulb and one bright white bulb, lights flickers on and off. I took apart the hood for the light with the reflector in it and it appears that the connection is good. ANy ideas? Oh and shoudl i only count 65 watts in my wpg calculation since it appears that one of the lights is actinius (shines blue)?

I had a problem with a bad bulb in the last coralife fixture I bought. It would sometimes not light up. I replaced the bulb, and that fixed it. That's the first thing you should try too.

And no, you cannot count the actinic wattage towards your total light intensity. You have 32.5watts of usable spectrum.
