I'm in agreement with Amanda. I have had Power-Glo, it is very high in the blue and plants do not do that well under it, plus algae will in my experience. The kelvin number is the key, anything higher than 7000K is not as good as 6000K-7000K.

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]

And @ plumpkin yeah I'm ready for some milder weather too.
