You might want to pick up a couple 9 watt daylight CFL bulbs to replace those. You can find them just about everywhere these days...the home improvement stores and WalMart for sure.

I think the wattage will be 10 watts, at least they are where I live. Just wanted to mention this, so the OP doesn't go hunting around for 9 watt because we told him to get those.

And, get the "Daylight" type, they will have a Kelvin rating of 6500K. These are much better for plants, and they give a true colour rendition. I have two 10w GE Daylight 6500K over my 10g and 20g tanks, the plants are thriving.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
