I currently have a stock hood with two CFLs but would like a more open top tank. Would two or three of the following be enough to grow HC and other stuff etc(assuming I have all my other parameters in check of course)? http://www.amazon.com/Fluval-Mini-Power-Compact-Lamp/dp/B004QSV8XK

This is a basic question, but this unit uses screw in CFLs as well right?

Thanks! :D:D

It uses power compact, not screw-in bulbs. I could be wrong about this next part, but I believe the bulbs/fixture is modified in such a way that you can only use Fluval's bulbs with it and not normal power compact bulbs.

It also says the clamp opens just 6mm on the page. That may not work if you're using a standard 10g tank.
