I tried using a 27W CFL spiral bulb but the plants just didnt really seam to respond to it. After I put the metal halide on the tank the plants almost stood straight up towards the top of the tank like they were trying to go towards the new light. I did adjust the light to the highest it would go (about 16in) above the water surface. I just did this tonight so we'll see what happens.
