Description:
I used this product to swap out the bulbs that came with the Top Fin 10g Goldfish kit. I am pretty sure its the same for the "tropical kit" as well.

The existing bulb was yellowy so I used the GE CFL Daylight Energery Smart 10W (40W equivalency). It cost $7 at Walmart.

They fit fine and it is def brighter than before but I think its a cleaner look.

It runs significantly cooler than the previous bulbs. It runs about 4degree C cooler than before which can be critical especially in the summer.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Great for smaller tanks with incadecent fixtures
Cons: be careful when screwing out, may break

 
I use these in all my small tanks with aquarium plants in them and they give them great growth. With small tanks that have incadecent fixtures (ones where you have to screw the light in) this is the way to go. It's cheap, produces bright, clear light that let's plants thrive. Make sure the light you pick up is either rated "daylight" or has at least 6700k lumen is the color temperature. 10000k works well too but may give you a little more algae growth in tanks smaller than 10g.
