wow, lot of posts, yes sorry i should have said power compact lighting, thought thats what you would all think first.
And as much as researching myself can help, we learn from asking.

hahaha, power compact is a lot different from what i listed!

well one thing i know about pc bulbs is that you inherently lose some of the power the bulb generates, has to do with the loop or something this is why i went with T5 HO or whatever it is.

i use spiral cfcs for nanos you can build your own hood that way and just buy a bulb at home depot for cheap.
