Coralife 20W Mini Compact Florescent?
 
Any One used Coralife 20W Mini Compact Florescent for a pico reef. Im planing to use two for a 5 gallon. That is 8w/gallon.

Ive got Coralife's 12" 2x18w 50/50 pc as a light on my fuge. I like the light itself, But have a few qualms about it. First, the light is not equipped with a fan, so I have to have an external fan sitting on the top of the sump to help cool the light. Second, The bulbs dont seem to last very long. The bulbs seem to burn out after only about 6 months. Personally I think a $16.00 light bulb of that size should last a little bit longer..

Other than that, I like the light.
