I am confused.

I bought the Aqualight (Coralife) 24" compact fluorescent 130W (2-65watt straight pin lamps) for my 30 gallon. Of course, it came with an actinic and a 10k. So I have been looking EVERYWHERE, and I can't find 65W 6700K, which is what I need right??? I can find 55w, but not 65w.

What should I use?:aah:

Here's the place I bought my PC bulbs from:


They don't list a 65 watt bulb either. I've never seen or heard of a 65 watt PC before. You may have to go with the 55 watt bulbs but you might call or e-mail these folks and ask. They seem like nice people to deal with.

Good luck...

You can use 55w bulbs in place of 65w bulbs. I encountered the same dillemma you did when I needed to replace the 65w bulbs in my CSL Britelite fixture. I ended up getting some 5500K 55w bulbs in square pin config from ahsupply.

Champion Lighting does carry 65w bulbs, though.
