Everytime my light turns on, it blink on and off for a while before finally staying on. Whats up with that?

Sounds like fairly normal fluorescent behavior. Your starter might be starting to fail. Cheap to replace.8 tanks running now:
1x 220 gallon, 2x55 gallon, 1x40 gallon long, 1x29 gallon, 1x20 gallon long, 1x5.5 gallon, 1x2 gallon
Gouramis, barbs, rasboras, plecos, corys, tetras, fancy guppies, swordtails, ottos, rainbow shark, upside-down catfish, snails, and Max and Sparkles the bettas.

Yep... My fluorescent lights do that too. Annoying... but normal.. lol

I agree with jaster, all my fluorescent lights do that."Speak softly and carry a big stick"
I have lots of tanks, 9 I think.

I've had that hood on there for almost a year and it just started doing it though?

Anyways, yeah normal thing for most stock fluorsecent fixtures. All mine do it. It probably is the starter, but I wouldn't replace it. I run my starters until they die.

Like GM said, your starter might be getting old. Maybe the bulb too.Regards,
