These are my choices and obviously i would rather spend less then more.
dollars in AU Australian.
Aqua Glo 0 $17.85
Bio Lux $17.85
POWER GLO (HAGEN??) 25.95 these tubes seem to be a good option. maybe 2 
Flora Glo $28.50
Aquarelle 6500k $17.95
Aquastar 10 000k 19.75 - better for marine?
coralife trichlomatic super daylight 6500 full spectrum $30.00 !!!!!! 
fancy but expensive.
grow lux ????k  $19.95
Triton $69.50

I can help you with three things:

Power glo's operate at ABOUT 8500-9000k, a little high for a planted 

Chroma 50 and Chroma 75 make a great pairing, maybe 3 50's and 1 75

I bought a 18 inch t-8 NEC rated to 6500 k and its baloney.  The color 
seems more like 5000, which is OK, but the rating is not right.  I wish 
someone with some equipment could verify, but be wary of NEC.
