    My guess is that the standard socket hood will probably accept 13W or smaller CF bulbs. Try to locate the "daylight" colored bulbs if you can.

    Kate, I have a 10 gal right now with N. ventricosa, D. adelae and P. primuliflora (gonna move them to my 29 gallon after I get my fish out of there, but anyway) with gravel in the bottom (water retention for higher humidity) trays under the plants, a thermometer and hygrometer, foil on three sides, a fluorescent fixture over it with an 18'' regular fluorescent tube and a trimmed sheet of hard plastic with 14 ventilation holes melted into it covering the open area of the tank not already covered by the fixture. The light's on from about 9AM to about 11PM. Plants are doing GREAT. I can't think of a simpler way to do it.

    Yeah. Go to WalMart and get a tube fluorescent in the houseware department, and make sure it says something like "full sun" or "sunlight" or "full spectrum" on it, not "kitchen & bath".
