Oh gosh, that is a flood light and not good for plants. Exchange the light bulb that fizzled out, if the 2nd light bulb fizzles out also we will then re visit the home improvement cfl 6500k light bulb thing.

I'm not sure..lol they are teeny tiny barely noticeable. I just noticed them 20 minutes ago. They are white and have what looks like two tails....I don't mind them if they are harmless.

You might review OldFishLady's NPT threads for tips and tricks. There are plenty of them.

Any desk lamp using a 6500K spiral CFL is better than the hassle you're having right now.

Petstores do seem to overcharge on API master test kits so, although I'd rather shop locally (in case of refunds/returns), I can't pass on this deal from Amazon:
[ame="http://www.amazon.com/API-Freshwater-Master-Test-Kit/dp/B000255NCI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1353232237&sr=8-1&keywords=API+test+kit"]Amazon.com: API Freshwater Master Test Kit: Pet Supplies[/ame]

Add a $5 doodad and get free shipping.

WoW...the price just went down. Make that a $10 doodad.

I think I'm going to get two, because they're half the price of Petco.

Double check this with Aokashi or someone more familiar with plants, but....

Even though that peacock fern won't do as a submerged aquarium plant, you might use it emerged, with the leaves in the air. Emergent plants remove a lot of ammonia, more than most submerged plants.
