basically I just want to know if anybody knows if it is possible to take a flouresent tube from australia and put it in a canadian ballast and to have it work? do the bulbs differ from country to country? or will my canadian/american (not sure which) ballasts not be able to use an australian fish tank flouresent? reason is I have 4 ballasts each has 1x20watt bulb one has 2x20watt and I want to set up a 15g or near that reef. 80/15=5.33 watts per gallon. will they work using aussie bulbs?

I'm not sure on that one but as long as the light fixtures are the same and the wattage is similar it should work.
