Bare with me. For the time being, I'm going for the cheap bare basics of planted tanks. (Hey I still have issues with paying $2 for a fish! ops: )

I have a 20L with a 18" 15 W fluorescent strip light. The only available ones in the stores were GE and Phillips P&A bulbs and Sunshine bulbs.

I decided on GE P&A and don't care for the results. It's dim and yellow. Is it my tank (it might have a slight tinge of yellow from driftwood, bronze colored gravel) and strip light (plastic might have yellowed- got it used) or is it the bulb?

Will either brands of Sunshine bulbs give me a brighter whiter look? Still good for plants (considering low light plants only of course)?

Thanks! 8)
