Default Power glo vs Aqua Glow?


I've been using Aqua Glow bulbs with good results in my low light low
tech tank.

Someone suggested Power Glo bulbs instead (Also by Hagen). Is there
really a big difference?

Default Power glo vs Aqua Glow?

I got an aqua-glo bulb that came with my hood when I first bought the whole
kit. Six months went by and I was happy with it until I wanted to grow
plants. I found that the growth was very slow on the low light plants I was
told would grow. Since then, I replaced the bulb with a power-glo and the
difference was obvious immediately, other than appearing much brighter, the
plants preferred it and grew faster.

Good luck,

Phil..

Sherry, I'd definately recommend Power Glo for a high-intensity light. It
has a high "kelvin" rating of about 18,000...which is the highest out there.
It produces a broad spectrum very bright light. The color is also excellent
for showing off both fish and plant colors as well. If you use this light
make sure you are fertilizing properly and using some sort of carbon
supplement like C02 to prevent algae from taking hold.

It still won't fry my low light crypts and such, correct?

Crypts do great in my 4wpg 8 inch deep 10 gallon tank....they fried for a
bit..then came back like gangbusters.
