Default Can anyone give me info on Odyssea lights?

I bought a Odyssea from a friend of mine for 20 bucks for my 29gal tank. The light has 4 T8 bulbs, and from what my friend told me it should have about 96 watts. He used it to grow coral. There are two normal bulbs, two purple neon bulbs and two power switches. Each light switch turns on one of each bulb (normal and neon). I dont need 96 watts so I only use two bulbs at a time. I haven't really seen any improvments in my plants. Are these neon bulbs any good for plants? how long should I keep it on every day? Are lights for coral any different from freshwater plant lights? It almost seemed like things where doing better when I had my old 19 watt light. Any help would be appreciated.
