10w 6500k CFL light?

I was wondering if this light would be ok for growing low light plants in a 3g tank!! the light would be right above the tank...

what does CFL stand for?

Is stands for Compact Fluorescent Light.

And yes! I use CFL's on two of my tanks, and you could actually grow some medium light plants in there too, the light can be quite strong, especially on a 3 gallon. I have one on my ten gallon, and I'm growing potted watersprite, bacopa, pygmy chain sword, crypt wendtii, an amazon sword, crypt balansae, and anubias var. nana.
