I wasn't getting a whole lot of attention on my other thread, probably due to the name, but whatever. Point is, I have a fluorescent fixture for my tank, and I have a choice between the Hagen -Glo bulbs. I need something good for plant growth. I want to do Aqua Glo, as it has high peaks in blue and red spectrum, even if it also has another peak in a more visible spectrum for humans. I understand from all I've read that since it has the spectrums in the right places, it having some extra kelvins elsewhere shouldn't hurt the plants, at worse I might need to do some algae scrubbing, if that.
The other bulb I'm considering is the Life-Glo, which I know would support plants, but it's also an extra eight dollars for a technically dimmer bulb if I understand correctly.
