Their spectra are completely different. The C50 is a full-spectrum bulb
with high CRI that tries to simulate sunligth. Successfully IME. The PowerGlo 
spectrum looks very similar to Triton's, with a lot of blue and red emission.
So it should give a pinkish/purplish hue and should have very poor CRI. 
Personally I like the way the Triton bulb enhances reds and blues, and I 
presume the PowerGlo should give similar results. They are very similar in 
total PAR output though (see data and pointers to spectra at
