I have tanks running with PC's, ODNO (Overdriven) T-8's, NO T-8's, NO T-12's, and Screw-in Compact Fluorescents. My preference right now is the overdriven setup for 4 foot tanks. For 3 foot tanks PC's seem to be a better choice due to the limited options for 3 foot T-8 bulbs. I only have screw-in CF's on one 10G tank and I'll be changing that to NO T-8's over the Holidays.
I also have a 20G tank that has a cheap Fluorex worklight...mine is probably the only one made that has lasted two years and counting. I'd never buy another one due to all the bad experiences posted by others.
