Haha, just 2 hours ago I played with not one but four of these 48" Home Depot shop lights trying to figure out which one works with what bulbs.

The verdict is - there is no telling! :D

Some worked only with 2 bulbs. Remove one and the other bulb does not work. It doesn't matter T8 or T12.
One fixture worked perfecly with 1 bulb or with 2 bulbs.

I'd get the GE DayLight 6500 or 6700 bulbs - a 2-pack is about $6 I think. Using both bulbs will work fine and the color is nice too although a little too white.
