Do you mean power compact bulbs from lowes or NO
floruescent bulbs? I haven't been to a Lowes for a long time, so I can't answer your question, but if you are talking about pc
bulbs, and Lowes sells them, then yes. Just make sure you get them for the correct watt, and anything from the 5000 to 10k temp range is acceptable. Most people favor either the 6500 or the 9750 bulbs.
the bulbs at ahsupply are 32.99 so you'd need 2x of them. which would be 66.00 + the 115.00 for the kit + 25 for the hood, you're looking at around 200.00 for the setup, which I think is cheap lighting for a 3.5 wpg
55 gallon tank, IMO
