if the plants are green and growing i wouldnt switch it. if you are not getting the effect you want the up it.
in a 10 gallon the spiral bulbs make it easy to get the desired effect vs the t8 t12 bulbs that are common.
full spectrum bulbs are fine to use for plants. the cfl bulbs i make sure are the daylight and 6500k.
you came up with a great idea many people use .
