Hi guys,
i recently just picked up a hagen glo 2X54W T5 setup off ebay relatively cheap. I've never had a T5 set up before, but is there meant to be a starter (similar to those in T8, 12s) that you can replace??? i couldn't find one.

Some lights don't have starters especially the newer light fixtures. If the lights quit working it is usually the ballast.

No, no starters with electronic ballasts. All T5s are electronic ballasts.
