Hi all :D
I was wondering if I would be able to use a T-12 bulb in a standard all glass strip light.
I have found a very nice deal on a couple of 75 watt bulbs and wondered if they could be used.
I am interested in extra wattage for use is a planted tank.
Thanks so much for advice!

Is the fixture made for T-8? t-10 T-12 t-8 can usually interchange, but there is a difference in diameter. T-8's are 1" t-12 are 1.5"
T-8's are more efficient and give more light, if it's made for t-10's then t-8's should fit. Somehow the smaller diameter bulbs usually put out more light.
