Well, it looks like i wont be able to get mushrooms, at least not untill i can get 80 bones to cover the cost of the light. Is there any saltwater plant or coral that can go under low light, lik 30 watts?

Upon further research, you may be able to do it with 30 watts. Color will be bad and growth will be painfully slow though
Make sure that if the bulbs are over a year old that you replace them however

Most bulbs need to be replaced every 6 months. Underlighting may not lead to the death of the organism, but it is not healthy for them and should not be done.
Did you check online stores to see how cheap you can get a compact fluorescent?

Yea, 60-75 depending on the site. Ive got to wait a bit though, ive been blowing through this paycheck a bit too fast. I gotta cool my jets, or i wont have any money.

lights are alot. A light for my 10g was eighty smackers, and the marine-glo bulb was 20$. The marine glo bulb is REALLY good. My live rock is the most alive thing ive seen. well worth it.
