Question about a light bulb.

Hi my name is Chris, I have a 5 gallon tank with a few mollies. I would like to get some plants. I bought the aqua culture 10 watt mini flourescent aquarium bulb from Walmart. The major question I have is, on the box it says under warnings to use in dry locations only. My aquarium hood has a partial cover over the incandescent bulb that came with the tank. I'm wandering if it is safe to use the new bulb I bought since it will be covered from the water. Please help me out here. I called the aqua culture company and they acted like I was stupid for asking and didn't even give me an answer.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, but thankfully they both led to fish stores.
