depends on which ones you get. If the hood doesn't have much room for the regular size bulbs, then you can get the screw in cfls made specifically for aquariums at most pet stores. Even walmart carries them in the pet dept. I think they vary in price from around 5-10.

In mine I use 6500k daylight bulbs and they are a few dollars each.

What is the difference with 6500k and 10,000? I use 2 10,000k, but I have a 6500k, should I switch back
