ONe bulb out in my GLO t5 ..help

While putting my light back ontop of my 55g after cleaning my tank, I accidently banged it off the tank.
Nothing broke but when I plugged it back in, only one light came on for about 2 seconds then turned off. It did it again after I unplugged and re plugged it back in.

I am wondering if aquarium lights won't stay on unless both bulbs are working... i am hoping i didnt ruin my light.

thank you

That is genrally true. I would check to make sure the bulbs are still in their sockets correctly. But you may have to try different bulbs.

I recently did the same thing...however, my one light still turned on. Do you run two 24" lights along your 55G, end to end?

you might be better off to replace both lights, at least I did....the one light was older and the new one put off a different hue of light than the other one.

But like WisFish said, before you go out and spend $30 on two new lights, check your connections and make sure both of them are snapped into place correctly
