I have never changed a bulb in my life and was wondering about the different types of lighting out there, mainly flouecent bulbs.
i was also wondering if I could get away with haveing some kind of high powered florecent and keep an anenome.
I would highly recommend T-5 over the power compacts. The cost are fairly similar, T-5 gives out much more light (par), less heat, and the bulbs last much much longer. With the t-5 you are able to keep a wider array of corals and species of anemones.
