Anyone Have Experience With These Light Bulbs For Planted Tanks?

    Since you bought them used you're probably better off replacing them with new bulbs anyway. The light output of fluorescents changes over time as the powder on the inside of the bulb wears away. You can get these bulbs at good pet stores but if you want to save money just go to your local hardware store and look for full spectrum household T8 bulbs. Or Daylight, or 6500K (or more) or I've had decent results with Cool White in a pinch.
