Flora Sun 18" 15W
Great for planted tanks
I purchased 2 of these fluorescent tubes and put them in a shop light. The plants are very green and growing nicely and the light also shows the pigments of the fish better than the regular light I was using before.

I have an 18" bulb on a ten gallon, heavily planted tank, with a FloraMax substrate and using Leafzone to supplement that. The 15 watts gives 1.5 watts per gallon (wpg) which is a fair amount of light for most plants. Make sure you research your plants as some require much more lighting than others. You should be fine with low-moderate light requirements, and in some cases high light plants will do ok too, it really depends on so much more than just the lighting. Overall, a quality bulb, better than a standard one.
