Those were just for demonstration and photos...I pay about $3-$4 each for mine at lighting shops, Home Depot, Canadian Tire, Wal Mart, etc.

Well I found one that looked exactly like the ones in the link, but when i tried it, it was like a yellowish light. That's bad for a tank right?

You don't want the light too yellowish. I have never seen a CF, apart from the coloured ones, that emits yellowish light.....usually, it is quite white.
