So, it is by far time I upgrade my lighting, well the bulbs, on both of my tanks. When it comes to lighting, I have no experience. I currently have factory on both tanks... my 15g being of lower lighting than my 29g.
I need to know what kind of bulb options I have to replace my current ones without having to replace the fixture or breaking my wallet.
My 29 is the Top Fin 29g started kit Petsmart has always sold (measurements actually make it 30.2g). So it takes one long florescent tube for a bulb. Link to it here...

My 15g is the kind of hood that has two spaces for screw in bulbs. The best I have done with it thus far is the florescent day light bulbs (the ones that look like the energy saving house bulbs, but are big U's verses spirals).
I've tried to keep my plants low light ones, but I have a few that would definitely benefit from a medium light, that way my low lights wont melt.
