I ordered some 8800K 65W (Custom Sealife clearance from Big Al's) PC bulbs not realizing that they're square-pin plugs. The Aqualight fixtures I have have straight-pin end caps. Is there anything special that would need to be done to rewire the fixtures with a square-pin endcap?

The reply I got from AH Supply was that I'd need to use their dual 55W ballast in order to drive a single 65W bulb. The new end cap was an additional $7. So that's one avenue I have open, which may be a better one than to mess with rewiring the Aqualight.

Besides, I've been slowly working the idea of a large tank in the living room on my wife. So I'll be needing new fixtures anyway. :lol:
