Light??

The minibow I got came with a 15 watt incandescent bulb , but since
I have live plants I swapped it for a flourescent bulb I found in my house.
It works fine, but the box says it's 60 watts!!

Is that way too bright? The anubias's leaves are slightly curling...is
that ok? Should I stick to the 60 watt flourescent bulb or the 15 watt incandescent one??

Yea, it is too much. I found a flourescent one for those types of tanks at walmart. It's the right size and I think 15-25 watts. Or 10...lol One of those, I don't remember but it isn't very costly either. :)
