Lighting

I'm planning on changing the incandescent lights in my hood to fluorescent
Would these be okay to use?

It's a 10g tank, the hood can handle 15watt bulbs.

I currently only have java fern in it.

I don't see why they wouldnt be okay. The lighting color may.be a little different than what your use to

I think they will work fine. Java fern is a low light plant

Make sure there is glass in between because I did that and they rusted and probably poisoned my fish.
