Are there any disadvantages to the dome lights? Or are they just less powerful?
I think they are probably less efficient, but not so much that you would really notice. The biggest issue I can see with the CFLs is getting them set up so you have good, even tank coverage. I've considered going that route...but I haven't figured out how I would hang them yet. THey look good to me when they are painted black. Read through that CFL thread, those cats know more about them than I do.
