Oh, that's true. I have a 15 watt incandescent right now(that's what the kit came with), so do you think it would also hold that amount in flourescent? I would think so because incadescents give off heat, and I think that's a restriction so the hood won't melt or something like that, but I'm thinking it should also tolerate that wattage in flourescent lighting....

Okay mine came with a 15 watt incandescent bulb and the max CFL bulb it takes is the 11 watt. I found that it is cheaper to buy the CFL bulb at Target or Lowes. However, for my tank Petsmart does sell the CFL bulb. It is like $15 there though. So I buy the "mini" bulbs lol.

ok, lol. I'll search around at some of the hardware stores here, and walmart and such and see what I can find. I think I saw that walmart had a 10 watt flourescent, but I'm still wondering if that's going to be enough....

Make sure it is daylight spectrum if you have live plants.
