Compacts "can" be bad - there is no scientific proof of what happens with a beardie being in contact with them. IF you go for a compact you would want to get an MVB bulb (mercury vapour) However, strip lights are far better in my opinion and from personal experience with Helio. It appears the compacts (i went through 3 in just over a year) seem to have a shorter life span than tubes.
