Nick's got it. Atlanta Light Bulbs has it as well here.

Otherwise, Pet Kingdom has some lights that will work (Look for Helios lights). Commodity Axis sells Helios online as well (here).

Ok...call me a noob, but is that a straight 4 prong bulb? The "4 Pin Biax" is throwing me off. I got 4 Pin...... I'm not familiar with "Biax". It's making think of 2 axis, so I'm not getting the "straight" alignment idea.....Am I over-thinking this? LOL

Thanks for the links too!

Yea, it's kind of weird. Under Atlanta Lighting, the picture is correct. And the model on that Atlanta page matches with the one on LightBulbsDirect, so I'm thinking they're the same bulbs.

It is definitely straight pin. 2G11 is the designator that tells you it is straight pin. Sometimes it is referred to as "German style", too.

I'd still consider switching to a 55W. You can get the 9325K's, or 6500K, for about $14 each plus minimal shipping.
I thought 55W and 65W bukbs were the same thing... Or hats what I was told, a 55watt bulb will become a 65 watt bulb when run off a 65 watt ballast and visa versa.
