If I take one tube out won't the other tube stop working

In most light fittings each tube has its own ballast and starter. So you can comfortably remove one tube and the other tube will still operate. In some rare cases the fittings will have a single ballast supplying both tubes. But this is extremely rare unless you are using T5 tubes (see comment below). If you are not sure, remove one tube from your fitting and see if the other one goes out.
