I'm using Coralife bulbs now, but when I first set up my tank, I used Hagen tubes - one Floraglo and one Aquaglo. I was quite satisfied with the results. Even my stem plants grew well, even though I only was using 2 watts per gallon from a standard twin tube strip light. If I had to do it over again, I would probably use two Plowerglos instead. They're of the same spectrum as the Aquaglos, but with a higher lux rating. My only issue with the Floraglo is that after buying it, I realized that the spectrum wasn't really what was supposed to be the ideal for growing plants, in that it had mostly green output and practically no blue. Despite this, it grew my plants just fine, and I liked the color combination between the two Hagen tubes I used better than the two 6,500K Coralife bulbs I'm using now.
