Hi all,

I've been running one bulb in my dual bulb T5HO AquaticLife fixture for as long as I've had it. Is there any downside to doing this in terms of damaging the fixture? The lighting has been just fine and haven't noticed any problems.

I had the same question, so I e-mailed WavePoint, the manufacturer of my light fixture and got the following response:

Removing one bulb may cause the other that is connected to the same ballast (to) fail prematurely. If you have any further questions feel free to contact me directly.

I think he meant TO fail prematurely

for the record, I have a t5ho ballast from hagen and it is a double fixture.....the fixture will not work with only a single bulb....at least mine wont...perhaps yours may be different
