Okay, I have had a screw-in CF bulb hanging over my 20H on the kitchen counter for over a year now.  It has a purple tropical water lily that bloomed a coupla times, but now, it has had a bloom open continuously for the last month!  I will look tonight, I think I stuck the bulb package in the cabinet.  The bulb is in a $10 parabolic clamp-on fixture, also from Home Repot.  The bulb is around 8" above the open top of the tank.
