If you read that they produce mass amounts of algae, maybe you should not use them in a planted tank!!! But there are many other factors that will contribute to algae blooms like an imbalance in nutrients.

I think that the best ones for me are some T-8 flourecents in the 5500K to 6500K range. That is what I use and have not any algae problems.
