can you tell us more about the fixture itself?
are they screw-in type bulbs or
is the fixture itself compact fluorescent.
how good is the reflector in the housing?

its just a regular incadecent hood with 2 20 watt u shaped cf lights in it. The light are kinda of pinkish. If i were to repace this hood with this then what could i grow in my tank and would it be enough light.

eBay: 20" 1x28W Coralife Aqualight Deluxe Power Compact hood (item 7756418996 end time Dec-28-06 15:07:51 PST)

I want to replace my incadecent hood with a nice fixture so what would you recommend
