What Type of Lighting do YOU Use - And Where To Get It

Hi everyone, been awhile! Just an update, I have a 5g betta, a 2.5g betta, 10g betta, and 10g with 2 angelfish. My favourite plant is anubias nana and my second favourite is wistera, however, it keeps dying. After using Flourish Excel, I'm seeing life on one of my stalks, but after during further research I learned that I should be using CFL (compact fluorescent) instead of incandescent to provide the best lighting for my wistera.

However, I can't FIND CFLs that fit in my 5g and 10g tanks. So, what type of lighting do you all use, and where do you buy your bulbs?

Thanks!

I cant quite tell you the brand, but I use a florescent tubular light from walmart in both my tanks, with good success. They come in one of those hard-to-open plastic cutyourhandoff packaages and are about $5-$6. They sell them in the pet section/Fish section, by the gravel, nets and food.

Thanks, I just went and googled to double check what lights come standard in my Jebo 310. Its just an 8watt light but it seems to do the trick for the java moss that im growing in there slowly.
