I believe the power compacts operate at a higher output, similar to HO T5s (High Output T5s). I'm not sure you would get enough light with those screw in normal outputs to keep algae at bay. They might work, but if it was me, I would go with the Coralifes. The unit looks good too. And the mirror finish reflector is a big part of aquarium light brightness.
