I bought a couple of 4' bulbs with this claim a couple of monthes ago, can't remember the brand nor the cost, but they do work as my water hyacinth, water lettuce and anacharis us thriving. I don't know if it's the nitrogen load or whatever in the water, but one of the aquariums is also producing a bunchy of that real slippery, long hairy looking green algae. I just pull it out by hand most of the time to keep it to a somewhat controlable amount.
