I'm only running 15W tubes, but I've had good success on all my
Power-Glo only tanks.  Of course, I should add some observations:  

The tanks are part-submersed and part-emersed.
The lighting is on the low side of the scale (easier when plants are

I like the look of my tanks with Power-Glo's on top.  It's a crisp, but
also warm look.

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

I also use Chroma 50 tubes.  I like these, but think they should be
mixed with other tubes to display the fish optimally.
