Really? Bizarre...I would have assumed a good 10%-20% cheaper there.

I bought a screw in floursecent bulb at WalMart yesterday for $5, a two pack was $9. They had quite a few choices irt size, wattage, etc.

Good luck with the water lillies. I used to have an outdoor pond when I was in the south and the lillies were always my favorite!

i had a flourescent bulb laying around.... its not a twist but 2 prongs if you know what i mean?? its 23w and i have it on the side of the tank. i tried putting it in but then realized that its only shining on one side lol duh. so i put it on the side... i'm amazed about the color changes of the fish and how it brightens everything up. i also have a 15 w desk lamp bulb that i could use infront of the tank incase the 23 wont work. theres already a cm or 2 of green stalks coming out of the aponogeton.
