Light: Compact Fluorescent

Compact fluorescent (aka power compact) aquarium lighting utilizes fluorescent bulbs that are bent in half. These VHO lamps deliver a higher concentration of light energy in a smaller space than straight tubes do, although the light concentration is less than with metal halides. They are also different from regular fluorescent tubes in that the four pins are at one end while other fluorescent lights have two pins on each end.
