Here is the deal: I am looking to expand my option of plants in my aquarium, but in order to do that, I need to upgrade my lighting. I have two choices for bulbs, but am a little confused on which set to use. Its just a normal 10g tank.

Pretty cool I saw this thread. I am using 2 25" 20w lights of america "grow" bulbs. I picked them up with ballast for $10 each. See the tank in my sig? Thats my 34 gallon with the 2 bulbs. I spliced the wires together and hooked them to a switch under the hood so they operate as one light. The Wal Mart lights are the same exact light bulb that is sold in the pet departmant with rainbow packaging specifically for aquariums. I tested them over at the sporting goods counter Smile
