Lighting Question

I got a used aquarium from my neighbor today and it has a light fixture on it that still works. It's probably about 15-18 years old. Will this be safe to use on the tank? As I said, it still works fine, but would it be safer to just buy a new one? I obviously don't want it to explode or something on me. Thanks!

29 gallon FW planted bowfront: 6 ember tetras, 4 endler's livebearers, 2 sparkling gouramis, 1 cherry shrimp, 4 amano shrimp
