so i bought a new light bulbs for my tanks.
they are 2x 50/50 reef sun 10 watts fluorescent light bulbs.

........ that's a good question. I have no idea how those bulbs work. I normally get CFLs to light my tanks. They're cheaper and more readily available while still simulating daylight.

Yes overall you have 20 watts of lighting available.

However (especially with flourescents) what is more important is what spectrum of light it produces. The Coralife 50/50 bulb is intense blue spectrum. This is great for coral's, however plants prefer red light. If you want to stay with Coralife their Nutri Glow bulb is a better choice.
