Was it something like this:

Colormax Mini Compact Fluorescent Lamp - 10 W

If it is, my LFS dropped the ball. They could have sold me one of these, and some plants to go with it.

That's not like them. They're cross selling machines, lol.

Yup!!! These are the exact ones that I have in my 5g and my 10g (2 in the 10g) They're twirly, but have a kind of bulby thing on the outside *shrugs* I just got 'em cuz' I needed them to be the right size to fit in the plastic space around the bulb, and the normal sized lights were too fat. The right sized ones had screwy things that were tiny, though - these came with screwy thing adapters. *nods* so they can have FAT screwy things and STILL fit into the casing around the light in the tanks. . .

did THAT make sense? I fail at terminology! ;)

BTW, welcome to hippy fish farming! It's a wonderful world, neh?

Niiiiice! Thanks for the heads up. My LFS sells Zoo Med bulbs too. I am shocked they didn't sell me this when I asked if I could grow plants in the Betta tank. Not like them to miss out on a potential sale.

I'll totally get one of those and add some plants in with Mary Poppins (that's my son's male Betta)

Fo shizzle. (Couldn't resist, I tried)

I should rename this thread "the things I still need to buy" thread. Tonight I have Equilibrium and Screw In Florescent Bulbs. And more plants.

Well, my kid is bad enough that if he gets nothing on Christmas morning we can say he was on the naughty list.

Haha. Seriously though, I have go into Santa mode soon and put the fish on the back burner. I'll need to get the Equilibrium though, because I don't want to lose the plants I already bought.

I won't start planting the other tanks until 2013, after Santa comes. It's just around the corner.

Does anyone know if I can use Equilibrium and Flourish Comp at the same time?
