I'm using the catalina setup and the plants are growing fine. That said, I'm hardly challenging myself: bacopa austrailis, sagittaria subulata, anubias barteri var. barteri and vals.

With co2 the bacopa need trimming every two weeks. Generally, things grow at a stately pace for me, but ymmv. Definitely problem free with easy growers in my 54 gallon.

Feel free to let me know if you have any other questions.

mooncon Is the plant bulb a red or yellow or more in the line of a 10000k

Aquaticz I have Catalina A fixtures t5ho single 6500k bulb in combination with Finnex LED.
+1 to the previous poster- definitely a matter of taste.

I use the 6500k and plant bulb together in my set up. I don't like the color of either individually but together they work very well. It gives a white light that makes reds really pop. Be advised that this is all a matter of taste, though.
