I don't have any expierience with the LifeGlos, but I did use a few 
PowerGlos back before I switched over to PCF lights. I was pretty happy with 
the color of the PowerGlos, which is similiar to maybe a 6700K light as I 
recall in terms of how it looks. I'm not sure if Hagen actually specifies a 
color temperature for the bulb. I wasn't all that impressed with the amount 
of light I got from the bulb, but I don't think it is any worse than a 
"normal" flourescent of the same type. I also have found the SunGlo lights 
to be good, and actually still use some of the little T5 size bulbs over a 
few 2.5 gallon tanks I have (using DIY fixtures).
