I just picked up a 24 inch dual bulb fluorescent shop light from lowes. I got two t8 18 watt ge aquarium lights. The light didn't come with a power cord, just a ballast with wiring. I have white and black wires not connected, I'm assuming I use these to wire the power. How do I wire it to an ac plug? Doesn't need an on off switch, I will just hook it to my timer.

I got it all connected, but it doesn't look as bright as two 18 watt bulbs should be. I looked at the pin connectors and it only has one wire going to each with no jumper. What should I do?

Here is the configuration of my light.

Where could I find a good T5 HO light fixture?
