A good parabolic reflector for fluorescent tubes, made of polished aluminum
and properly positioned, can effectively double the amount of light that 
reaches the water surface, when compared with a no-reflector arrangement.
So in this particular ad the problem seems to be more on the side of not
providing enough information, than actually trying to mislead the customer. 
I agree 100% with everything else you said though.
