Thank you all for replying,  I thought that there was a difference, but I wasn't
sure.  I also wasn't too sure of the availablity of T-8 daylight, full spectrum,
etc., etc.  tubes.  BTW does Chroma 50s come in 4' T-8 tubes? I like the color of
these,  I'll have to do some more looking around.
The specs on the ballasts are "PowerLighting Ultra-Miser, Electronic Ballasts
cat.# E432PI120G11".  I picked up a number of them (real cheap) when Builder's
Square went out of business.
