With zero information on what type or brand of bulb you were using, I can say with complete and utter confidence that I am 100% not sure.

Could you help us out a little?

Hi jeremy,
(Tula, how can you be so sure Laughing )
Jeremy, is your light a long tube with 2 prongs on each end?
If so, read the writing on the tube. Does it say C.W. or cool white and are there letters and numbers like T-12 or T-8.
Just to get the ball rolling Wink

Whoops my bad.
OK here goes, brand name - Eclipse
Yes it does have to prongs at EACH end
It is a F18T8 Natural daylight bulb, "Made in China" for Marineland.
Measurements - ~58cm excluding prongs. I'm guessing its a standard lightbulb for a 33 gallon, cheap canopy, cheap bulb.

A 33 gallon tank bulb is probably a 24". Wal Mart has all the bulbs you need. Just find a 24". I'm using 2 Lights of America 24" 20watts from Wal Mart.

Wal Mart sells GE "plant and aquarium" bulbs whch are the same EXACT light as the marineland bulb over in pets.

Ahh thanks for the info david...I just went to Walmart to pick up a bulb, pretty good quality for a decent price. I can totally tell the difference between the stock lightbulb and this one...WAY better quality! Most of the bulbs I went around looking for were about $25-35...but this one was for 12 Smile
