I don't have a bowfront anymore but no I don't use them. I just stick with my stock lighting unless I wanna plant a tank then I go the cheap route with screw in cfl bulbs from lowest or home depot with clip on lights.

I can't believe that's all that's needed for a planted tank!

Ah. I seen a picture of an award winning Japanese tank once it was zen something or other. But it just looked like it had tiny grass everywhere. Very simplistic looking. I wish I had saved the picture because I would have loved to have stolen the idea for a second tank...
