Floramax bulbs better than the full spedtrum bulbs? They say for plant growth and they do cast a different light(not bad though).
Personally, I think you'll have better results with just the "Daylight"or full spectrum bulbs. The Floramax is biased toward the red end of the spectrum, that's why the light's strange. It will work just fine for plants, but the Daylight bulb will probably give you more actual light output into the tank.

*560 gallons (2120 liters) in 5 tanks -> you do the math.
I agree. The intensity of all of the so-called plant or aquarium tubes that I have tried has been significantly less--up to half--of the "daylight" tubes. Plus you have that purplish hue that distorts the colours of plants and fish and everything else.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
