Hello everyone, I broke one of my florescent light bulbs while messing with the lid. It was not on the tank at the time so im good there lol My question is, will it be ok to run the other florescent with a backup incandescent? I have live plants on both sides of the tank and want to stop by walmart as soon as possible to get another florescent. Thanks.
I assume just the tube broke, not the fixture in any way. If this is a dual-tube fixture and the other tube will still light on its own, fine. Any additional light source may help, depending what you have in the way of light, tank size and plants. If you can get a new tube within a day or two, I wouldn't worry.
