Question CFL Bulb In A Regular Lamp?

Hi :)

I have a zoo med cf bulb 10w ac120v/60hz and I want to use a regular desk lamp instead of the tank cover style lamp. Here's a photo of what I have.

Can I use a regular desk lamp? Do they make desk lamps that can accommodate this bulb?

Thanks!
Michele

Yes, that bulb will fit in pretty much any desk lamp that would take a standard incandescent bulb. I actually have several of those bulbs, and they fit and work fine.

They also sell CFL curly bulbs about the size and shape of regular lightbulbs. These work great in desklamp fixtures. Cheaper than aquarium bulbs. Get the 13W size with 6500K color temperature, same color as the one you have now.
