    Almost 2 years later and I just replaced both bulbs. Probably should have done it earlier but the ones from the manufacturer didn't even begin to burn out until a few weeks ago. Ballast is still working as well as it has since the beginning as far as I can tell.

    While replacing bulbs I was able to get into the actual fixture. Pretty easy to do and the only issue was after a year of sitting over a fish tank it had some hard water stains that made it tough to get the "shield" out the very first time. Nothing a little vinegar didn't solve. Otherwise it was easy to get the caps off and get in to replace the bulbs. Four simple screws...
