In my opinion the screw in base cfl bulbs have opened up the delights of having a planted tank, to every one and every size of tank.You can greatly increase the par values by installing the bulbs vertically, it helps prevent re strike, so none of the glowing goodness is wasted.

Well with a student lamp i'm guessing that that 24 watt cfl is positioned at it's maximum for blinding overhead glowing goodness.
