Regular fluorescent light fixtures are T8. The T# refers to the width of the bulb. T8 and T5 also require different wattages so they will need fixtures specific to their design. Also, keep in mind that T5 & T5 H.O. (high output) require different wattages / fixtures. Each of these fixtures T8, T5, T5 H.O. will each progressively provide stronger output and keep more sensitive plants and/or corals. All fluorescent bulbs should be replaced after 6 months of use as there is spectoral shift that occurs and the output is no longer what you originally purchased.

No it has it's own housing but you only need this (need to purchase proper size) it also lasts for years not 6 months like floresents do. Floresents continue to light after 6 months however they lose something and the results is a big algae bloom. Thhrow your floresents out and just use these no bulb buying for years to come.

Thank you for your question ratcheck. The Coralife T5 H.O. 6,700K Aquarium Lamp would be the replacement bulb only. The fixture is sold separately, but does come with bulbs included.

With a measured length of 45.25" on your bulb, this would be (what is referred to as) a 48" bulb. These measurements that these lamps are marketed with are referencing the fixture (or tank) width. The color temperature and spectral peaks would be the same on this bulb and what you have currently(6,700 kelvin). The disconnect would be on the wattage. The "F28" denotes wattage. The bulb that you have is a standard output T5 bulb, while these are High-Output (48" = 54 watts on high output). Standard output and high-output lamps are not interchangeable so you would need to purchase a standard output version.
