Bulbs for a 10 gallon

Anybody know where I can get some 2 Flourscent 25 Watt screw in bulbs for my lighting hood? I have 2 Power compacts that are 10 watts each, but I doubt thats enough...

I have easily found them to 26 watts and up....I usually use the 13 watt sort in pairs...gives you 2.6 watts per gallon on a 10G.

That company's link I quoted earlier has these....23W/1500 Lumens each...gives you a total of 4.6W or 300L/Gallon:

Bigalsonline.com

They have great service, are cheap, and have quality stuff. Never had a problem with them.

I tried bigalsonline.com only found those long ones or the coral lifes or whatever it was called. The ones Toirtis suggested seemed a bit pricey. Well to my anyways. My parents would be mad at me if I bought those.
