plant light

Can I use a normal 60 watt plant light for my 10 gallon aquarium? Would that be too much watts?

Is this a fluorescent tube, a CFL, or an incandescent bulb?

18 species/varieties of fish, 15 species/varieties of plants - The fish are finally ahead of the plants!
*560 gallons (2120 liters) in 5 tanks -> you do the math.

It would probably work, but your wasting tons of money because its a incandescent bulb. Replace it out with a 12-15 watt screw in CFL bulb, just make sure you get one in the 6500k range, most the time called daylight you can pick them up at a hardware store or even walmart.
