aquarium fluorescent light wiring

Hello all. My son brought me this and dropped it off and just fix it or hook up the wires. I guess he wanted to use the shell for strip lights but now just wants the tube and original fixture put back. Everything works just wanted to double check the wiring as always better to ask. The power comes into lid and the push button switch. Inside is the holders, ballast and starter with the neutral wire running through starter. ill attach pics as some if the wiring wasn't clipped or touches even. thanks in advance just need simple hook up diagram or explain please

That is a standard preheat fluorescent fixture with a starter
Here is a diagram of the wiring

The ballast goes on the hot side and the neutral goes to one of the lamp holders
