I am thinking of getting a T5HO lamp to go into T5NO fixture, for it is cheaper that the T5NO lamps at Pet Smart. Will it work?
I have done it...but only with catalina aquarium ballasts, the light is much brighter in terms of lumens. He probably would have to take the unit apart and research the ballast to see if it can do it.It works fine... just dont run a N.O. lamp in a high output fixture.
That is a good buy. What is the wattage of the original bulb? What is the exact length. Found in Home Depot some bulbs are .25 in off listed size.I have a dual T5NO fixture. After doing some research I found F14T5 bulbs Daylight 6500K (the F14 refers to 14 watts) at buylighting.com for $7.95ea. Shipping is about $7.00. I bought three.
