Assuming these tubes are T8 (T8 are narrower than the older original fluorescent T12 tubes) they will need replacing every 2-3 years. When that time comes, go to a hardware or home improvement store and buy daylight tubes (look for a kelvin rating of around 6500K) made by GE, Phillips or Sylvania. Measure your tube end to end minus the prongs, and that is what you want (wattage is irrelevant) in a daylight or daylight deluxe, or similar. For years I used Sylvania, now Phillips because Home Depot here changed over. They work fine and cost considerably less than "aquarium" tubes, about 1/5 less.
